Zepter International is a global enterprise, which produces, sells and distributes consumer goods around the world, principally by way of direct sales, and also through stores. Zepter’s products are manufactured in seven Zepter factories based in Germany, Italy and Switzerland.

It was established in Linz, Austria in 1986 by its founder Philip Zepter, an entrepreneur and emigrant from Yugoslavia (today's Serbia).


Zepter International began distributing worldwide stainless steel cookware and tableware accessories, manufactured in its own plant in Milan, Italy. In 1996, Zepter Group acquired two companies, based in Switzerland, and thus branched out into the markets of light therapy medical devices (by the purchase of Bioptron AG, Wollerau and cosmetics (through Intercosmetica Neuchâtel SA, Neuchâtel).

After these investments the company's headquarters moved to Switzerland. Later on Zepter Finance Holding AG was established, providing services in the fields of private pensions, health care, insurance and property.
