Andis created the first generation of today’s Master Clipper in the basement. Four generations later, we’ve remained family owned and operated. And we’re proud to work alongside a team dedicated to the Andis legacy in a state-of-the-art facility located just a short drive from where it all began in Racine, Wisconsin. How we got here wasn’t easy, but it was very simple: if it isn’t the best, we don’t make it. That unwavering commitment to relentless innovation and quality remains as true today as it was a century ago. And if we have any say in the matter, it’ll remain just as true a century from today.
