Competent from the beginning
Soon after Franz-August Kümpers founded the company in Rheine around 1886, one thing was already clear: the combination of our competence in textiles and its reliable quality has a long tradition - and a great future.
Making history for the future
In 1886, Franz-August Kümpers founded his own textile company. In 1912, his four sons, Carl-Ludwig, Franz-Alfred, August and Gustav Kümpers continued his strategy of steady growth. After World War II and post-war reconstruction, the third generation of Kümpers took over the family business in the Sixties: Alfred, Claus, Eduard and Gustav-Adolf. Today Kümpers is managed by Joan-Dirk (picture) and Franz-Jürgen Kümpers and Dr. Rudolf Bonse.
Ready for tomorrow - today
Nothing changed about the company's core values even after the reorganisation of F.A. Kümpers in the `90s when the company started manufacturing at production sites in Eastern Europe.
