Who is the
What is standard for surfboards is pretty much an exception in the snowboard and skateboard industry - A board handmade by a shaper in his workshop! That was the initial idea behind 'factory-9' around Chris Spoerri and Philipp Gossweiler. The two Swiss snow- and skateboard shapers are dedicated to making the perfect board, tailor made to the request of their clientele. Their key to being successful is not only passion, know-how and working with best materials but also a great bit of ambition and taking the customers feedback seriously. 'The feedback we get from our customers is the base for new inventions', Chris Spoerri and Philipp Gossweiler say. And they know what they're talking about. Among their customers are Pat Burgener, David Hablützel, Verena Rohrer and Iouri Podladtchikov who won the gold medal in the halfpipe at the Olympic Games in Sochi, 2014. And while the industry is pumping out snow- and skateboards for the masses, the 'factory-9' is proud to build high quality snowboards and skateboards - one by one handmade in Switzerland.
Pumpkin Skateboards and Viking Skate Parts are both brands by the 'factory-9'. It is very important to us that we keep our high standards. Therefore, we will not accept any compromise for any of our products.
Our range has always been carefully developed and there are no products thrown in the market before they have been thoroughly tested and approved. We truely stand behind our products, as we truly are the 'factory-9'.
