Ed Scott was an enthusiastic skier and a passionate engineer. Somehow the bamboo or steel poles used for skiing until 1958 did not fit into his world view. So in 1958, he developed the first ski pole made of aluminum. Ed Scott from Sun Valley, Idaho, completely displaced the other poles from the market with his invention. This success formed the basis for Scott USA. The company continued to develop and became a manufacturer of a wide variety of sporting goods. The company even gained a foothold in motocross sport. Special goggles and clothing for motocross were big sellers. The expansion continued and Europe was also infected by the Scott virus.

With company headquarters in Fribourg, Switzerland, the company set about conquering the European market. In 1986, Scott launched its first mountain bike and three years later a groundbreaking development: an aerodynamic handlebar for racing bikes. This shape, revolutionary at the time, is now mandatory in time trials and also has many enthusiastic followers in triathlons. The "tinkerer's gene" ;of the company founder is firmly anchored in the company's DNA. It is therefore not surprising that Scott developed the first suspension fork in 1991 and shook up the market the following year with the first full-suspension mountain bike. Today, Scott fans can count on their favorite brand at any time of year: Mountain bikes, ski boots, freeride and touring skis, bike clothing, sunglasses, helmets, backpacks - there is nothing in cycling and skiing that Scott doesn't make. And if there is, you can be sure that the tinkerers will soon draw attention to themselves with a new product. SCOTT employs 1000 people worldwide, mainly in product development, marketing, sales and operations. "Innovation - Technology - Design": this is the credo and these three terms sum up the work.
