Andreas Heinzer began an apprenticement as a toolmaker in 1977 at Victorinox in Ibach, the producer of the world-famous Swiss pocket knifes and multi-tools. Changing his professional career in 1997, he soon missed sorely some workmanlike activity. Feeling sad that no one made the Yps pipes anymore now, he decided to re-install the production.

With considerable help of his brother Paul and his sister-in-law Silvia, a gold smith, he established a family based pipe production. Beside the Yps pipes he offers a range of other traditional Swiss models made of Palisander, Mehlbeerbaum (a whitethorn species), Yew tree and antler. Many of these pipes are metal coated.
