Movers and visionaries: Team and Management.

We, Manuela and Claus Bretschneider, are the husband and wife team, and family, behind the BREDDY'S name.

I, Claus Bretschneider, have a successful track record as an entrepreneur in the clothing industry spanning over 30 years. The continual development of highly functional clothing products is and always has been my ultimate goal.

In my first professional role I was already focused on the development, manufacture and sale of high-quality functional clothing, produced in owner-operated companies in Eastern Europe. With my former company I went from being a market leader of skiwear for ski schools and mountain railways to becoming the principal supplier of the Austrian police force, the Austrian Armed Forces, the Red Cross and many other emergency services and authorities.

I sold my company in 2011. A few years later I founded BREDDY'S together with my wife, Manuela Bretschneider. Manuela brings over 20 years of valuable experience as a manager in organisational development and marketing to our company. Plus both of us come from families with "tailoring roots" and learnt from an early age all about patterns, fabrics and materials.

Looking back, the role played by my father Rainer Bretschneider is also significant; he laid the foundations for the manufacture of high-quality trousers when he established the "B&V" pants as an absolute must-have item of skiwear back in the 1970s. Even then Bretschneider pants were known and loved for their great fit, functionality and comfort. It's a family tradition we uphold and continue to strengthen. Which helps to make us synonymous with quality, trust and sustainability.
