Swiss?[edit]

The German language text for this category says that Swarovski is an Austrian company, but the English language text implies it is from Feldmeilen, near Zürich, Switzerland. Trying to resolve this inconsistency, I note:

  • The WP:EN article Swarovski says the company is of Wattens, Austria. It makes no mention of Switzerland.
  • Swarovski's own web site (here) says there are production locations in Austria, China, Czech Republic, India, Jordan, Liechtenstein, Thailand and USA. No mention of Switzerland.

So it looks like the en text for this category is just plain wrong. Anybody any idea what has happened here?. -- Chris j wood (talk) 12:55, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Swarovski AG is in Dröschistrasse 15. FL-9495 Triesen Principality of Liechtenstein (almost Switzerland), most probably for fiscal and tax reasons. In en:Feldmeilen it is stated: "Parts of the Swarovski International Holding are situated in Feldmeilen". So the heads are in Austria, the money in Switzerland. --Foroa (talk) 13:35, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
