Skillers Workwear is the brainchild of Matti Viio, a former electrician who got "mad as hell" at the shortcomings of traditional work wear in the early 1970's. As a result of Viio's vision that work clothing should protect both the personal and professional pride of contractors and the service industry, Snickers was founded in 1972 in Sweden.
Thirty years later, Snickers leads the European market in work wear innovation.Now, Viio is bringing his flexible system of integrated work clothing to the United States, as Skillers Workwear. Skillers Workwear is now headquartered in Brush Prairie, WA with a full scale distribution center.This distribution center is owned and operated by REPCON NW a manufactures rep marketing Group located in the Pacific NW.
