150 years in the markeT


J.H. Ziegler GmbH was founded by Johann Heinrich Ziegler 1864 in Reutlingen to manufacture wadding. In 1893 the firm moved to Achern. There, the manufacture of upholstery wadding made of polyester fibres and the treatment of fibres were both steadily developed for new applications. In 1990 the main plant was substantially expanded, particularly for the manufacture of technical textiles.


Experience and know-how gained over 150 years in business plus innovative ideas allowed the company to adapt constantly to the latest demands of customers from all over the world. The aim was and is always to be a step ahead and to lead the industry with consistently new, optimal solutions.


In 2006 production capacities were almost doubled with a second site in Bábolna/Hungary. From 2010 to 2019  J.H. Ziegler has also been manufacturing natural-fibre nonwovens in Lambrecht/Rhineland-Palatinate. A production plant set up in 2014 in Huzhou/China serves customers in the Far East.
