Thygesen Textile Group was formed in 1991 by the merger of three local, family-owned companies. But the story of Thygesen Textile Group and the Thygesen family is rooted way further back in time…
In 1931, the Thygesen family changed profession from agriculture to manufacturing children’s and women’s underwear. The company grew steadily through the years and became a leading textile manufacturer, delivering its goods to the world market under the name Thygesen Textile Solution.
The company is currently named Thygesen Textile Group. It consists of eight subsidiaries including a Vietnamese manufacturing company and a share in the global German company, Müller Textil GmbH, which manufactures e.g. spacer fabrics for the automotive industry.
We design, manufacture, and sell textile products through the companies better apparel, The Headwear Company, INNFLOW and Online Textile Solutions. We employ more than 1,400 people in Denmark, Vietnam, Germany, Slovakia, Turkey, USA, Mexico, China, Korea, and Japan.
In 1931, the family started manufacturing underwear on the farm depicted above. Things have now come full circle, as the farm is once again the central office of the company and several of its subsidiaries.
