Specialists for technical narrow textiles under one roof in the future

Since the beginning of this year, the vombaur and Jumbo-Textil companies have been moving ahead together: under the roof of a newly founded holding company, the two companies based in North Rhine-Westphalia are pooling their expertise and experience in technical narrow textiles. At the same time, they are remaining independent companies and brands.

Two narrow textile specialists under one roof

vombaur is a specialist for tapes and seamless tubulars made of high-performance fibres. On the one hand, they are used for filtration – including in the food and chemical industries, amongst others. They are used as high-performance composite materials in aircraft construction or medical technology, for example. For technical applications, vombaur has developed specially coated industrial textiles for insulation, reinforcement or transport in a wide variety of industrial processes – from precision mechanics to the construction industry.

Jumbo-Textil is a specialist for high-quality tapes, braids, cords and nets as well as textile components. The company – founded in 1909 in Wuppertal and today based in Sprockhövel – has 65 employees and develops and produces innovative elastic and non-elastic narrow textile solutions for demanding applications. The high-tech textiles are manufactured on state-of-the-art production facilities and precisely specified using innovative processes. For automotive, aviation, industrial and many other – national and international – customers.

Solution providers and innovation drivers

A wide range of applications, an extraordinary variety of industries and excellent development and individual solution expertise – all this connects the two narrow-textile specialists. And there’s plenty of experience too: the new constellation brings together a total of 324 years of company history. The recipe for success of the two companies with a long tradition: to see every change as an opportunity for innovation. Both partners have always used changes and developments in the market and in industry to improve products, technologies, plants and processes – and to transform them into new solutions for their customers. This can be seen, among other things, in the numerous collaborations with research institutions.

Future-proof corporate development and product expansion

“Jumbo-Textil and vombaur are two specialists for high-quality technical textiles that complement each other perfectly. Digitalisation processes, investments, research projects and much more can be advanced even more effectively together,” explains Peter vombaur, the seventh-generation head of the family business. “Under a common roof, we can optimally plan our corporate development on a long-term and sustainable basis. And we can mutually benefit from knowledge transfer and efficiency advantages. Both partners will become even stronger as a result of the merger”, the managing director is convinced.

Jumbo-Textil and vombaur are two successful and economically sound companies that remain legally independent organisations under the joint holding umbrella. “We bundle our corporate and shareholder interests through a holding company. The respective companies are remaining independent. All contracts remain valid”, emphasises Andreas Kielholz, Managing Director of Jumbo-Textil. “Our aim is to bring together the technical and innovative expertise of our companies, to grow together and to expand the range of solutions we offer our customers.”
