About us

The world-renowned aircraft manufacturer Dornier began building textile machinery after the Second World War. The reason for this realignment: The Allies had prohibited the company from building aircraft in Germany.

The first result of his search for a new field of activity was the manufacture of shuttle weaving machines.
