Sturtevant, WI (March 29, 2012)— Andis Company has introduced the 90th Anniversary Red Master Clipper and the 000 blade, available in limited quantities, commemorating the company’s ninety years of operation. The bright red clipper is a very modern version of Andis’ first clipper. Today, the product line includes everything from clippers, trimmers, and a full range of blades to hair dryers, flat irons, curling irons, and products for the hospitality industry.
“Barbers and stylists love the power and performance of this classic tool,” notes Matthew K. Andis, president of Andis Company. “Since it was first engineered by my great-grandfather in 1922, the Master Clipper has been one of our most popular models.”
The 90th Anniversary Red Master Clipper has a lightweight, unbreakable aluminum housing, which protects its inner workings to assure years of dependable use. Its high speed magnetic motor runs quiet and cool. With 14,000 cutting strokes per minute, it is the ideal clipper for heavy duty hair cutting.
Production of the company’s first clipper began in the basement of the Andis family home. American barbers quickly embraced it, and the manufacturing facility relocated into an industrial building. Today, Andis has over 400 employees at its 160,000 square foot facility in Sturtevant, Wisconsin.
The fourth generation of the Andis family is now in charge of operations; Matthew K. Andis is president and shares the responsibility of guiding the company with his two sisters, Marcia Andis, senior vice president, market development, and Laura Andis Bishop, senior vice president, finance. Matthew L. Andis, their father, still serves as chairman.
Andis continues to grow globally. Almost 80 years ago Andis introduced its products to Europe, and they are now available in 90 countries around the world.
