Beginning in 1483, when Lauffenmühle was mentioned for the first time, through 1834, its founding year as a textile company, the company has continuously developed into a state-of-the-art all-process textile company specialized in the development and production of fabrics for professional and protective clothing.
With its history, which includes over 180 years of experience in textile production, Lauffenmühle is now a Europe-wide name for textile innovation, owing largely to its permanent investment in new technologies and an active participation in research projects in addition to a very close cooperation with textile institutes.
Lauffenmühle has always known how to adapt to the needs of the times – and the demands of the market. There were, for example, “high-times” for denim, for corded fabrics and for a long period of time also for fashionable flat fabrics.
Today, the company is a European leader in the development and production of first-class fabrics for high-quality professional and protective clothing, as well as for customized company clothing. Understandably therefore, sustainability is firmly anchored in the corporate strategy.
