Offering innovations – for us as a thread manufacturer that means an active and forward-looking approach to market requirements. This applies to current fashion trends for apparel as well as tailor-made solutions for automotive and technical textiles. Thereby you can rely on the first-class quality of our threads.

This has not only made us a successful producer with a worldwide customer and service network, but also an innovation driver and competence leader. Our sewing threads are used in a wide variety of applications – from clothing and technical textiles to highly complex and specialized areas. But we wouldn't be A&E Gütermann if we didn't have answers.

Special requests such as silicone-free, water-repellent, flame-retardant, UV-resistant? No problem. Customer-specific developments? Always with pleasure. Our motto is: What does not exist today, we want to develop tomorrow and manufacture the day after tomorrow. Always new, always better, that is A&E Gütermann. Or quite simply: Seams unlimited.
