And with the aim of continuing to grow as a pioneering group in the field of technical textiles: with partnerships, research cooperations, start-ups and many other projects, we want to promote the development of the group – and our industry.

Long tradition as a family-owned company

vombaur was founded in Wuppertal in 1805, while JUMBO-Textil was founded in 1909. Since the beginning of 2019, vombaur and JUMBO-Textil have combined their expertise, experience and corporate interests under the umbrella of the Textation Group. The two main shareholders Andreas Kielholz and Peter vom Baur hold the majority of shares. The advantages of a family-run business are thus retained in the newly created constellation.
