A look around Scott Sports’s new HQ in Switzerland

New 60m Swiss franc building houses all Scott’s divisions in one place for the first time

Scott Sports has just moved to its new headquarters building in the Fribourg suburb of Givisiez in Switzerland. Costing 60m Swiss Francs and taking three years to build, it replaces the five buildings between which Scott’s 350 employees in R&D, sales and marketing were previously scattered.

Scott Sports is a major brand in other sports besides cycling. It was founded in 1958 when Ed Scott invented the aluminium ski pole, as an alternative to the steel or bamboo poles which were then the norm. It still has a large presence in ski equipment and markets ski clothing both in its own name and via its Powderhorn subsidiary.

He’s been cycling for a lot longer than that though and his travels by bike have taken him all around Europe and to California. He’s been riding gravel since before gravel bikes existed too, riding a cyclocross bike through the Chilterns and along the South Downs.
