Founded in Chemnitz / Germany 1919 by Rudolf Then and concentrating on the manufacturing of barrels and piece dyeing machines, THEN soon became a synonym for fine piece dyeing machines.
In 1955 the business was relocated to Schwäbisch Hall, where it is still located today.
30 years later was the benchmark not only for THEN, but also for the entire textile industry: the THEN-Airflow technology which still today is setting standards in saving water, energy and time was introduced.

With production facilities in Schwäbisch Hall as well as in Shenzhen, THEN is a member of the FONG’S family since 2004.
