In 2004 the first airport information counter was installed at the Leipzig/Halle Airport. Between 2010 and 2011 extensive research and development was carried out at the headquarters in Münsingen to further develop customized furniture for airports.

In 2011 USM Modular Furniture entered into a business cooperation and USM Airportsystems AG was established.

The USM Airportsystems range is produced by USM U. Schärer Söhne AG, Münsingen, Switzerland.
