tradtionally one step ahead
may we present?
We are a Swabian family business.
Since its foundation in 1905, our company has been completely family-owned and
is managed by the owners, now in the fourth generation.
This has had a strong influence on us – with a lasting effect.
today and tomorrow
We are a leader in the circular knitting world, in the market as well as in technology. We set standards: in developing new processes and new approaches or by the depth of production, our know-how and market knowledge. Maintaining this lead and expanding it in the field of braiding machines is our ambition for the future.
our mission statement & our values

our values – our mission statement
“Innovation leads to success. Traditionally one step ahead.”
This belief is anchored in our DNA and is as old as the company itself is. We pursue it with a clear commitment to performance and a unique corporate culture. To find more about our vision and values, please refer to the compass (PDF).
4TH GENERATION OWNER-MANAGED
We understand ourselves as entrepreneurs in the sense of the word, as going ahead.
Our goal is to have a say in our market rather than just following its trends. This requires experience, market knowledge, innovative strength – and a good deal of courage.
