Space-saving wardrobe convinces investors


Zippsafe AG closed a successful round of funding at the end of April according to a press release. The start-up was able to secure 3 million Swiss francs.

Zippsafe has developed a space-saving wardrobe for public spaces. This is a type of textile locker with a sensor integrated into the textile fabric that triggers an alarm if it is damaged upon attempted theft. The lockers are easy to use thanks to a digital lock system. Additional functions include integrated ventilation and a solution to store shoes separately to meet high hygiene requirements.

Zippsafe now aims to use the fresh capital to drive international expansion. Last year, the start-up was able to enter the German market, where the Charité Hospital in Berlin is one of its clients. Next, Zippsafe hopes to focus on the markets of Austria, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

Carlo Loderer, CEO of Zippsafe AG, states: “The trend towards a responsible use of space is becoming increasingly more popular. Especially in today's world, where medical facilities around the globe are reaching the limits of their capacity, it is becoming clear how important efficient use of space can be.” According to Loderer, the new locker can save space by up to 70 percent.

Zippsafe was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Glattbrugg, in the Greater Zurich Area.
