in 1862, Emil Thiel, the great-great-grandfather of one of the todays company owners, Dr. Johannes Thiel, founded a company for agricultural trading goods in Vienna. In the beginning the company concentrated on the production and sales of insoles and planted the cornerstone for the Dr. Thiel® GmbH.
With the years the company moved over to Leipzig, later Bad Sulza, this is even today the juristic principal office.
After hard years as a private company in the former GDR (Eastern Germany) the owners were dispossessed in 1972. When the wall came down in 1989, the company finally was reprivatised and moved over to Hinterhermsdorf in Saxonia.
Still today the company Christa Thiel produces insoles at this place.
In search of new ideas Dr. Johannes Thiel founded the Dr. Thiel Umwelttechnik GmbH out of a subrange in 1995, after entering the registered trademark the company is called now Dr. Thiel® GmbH.
At first the company operated in the landfill erection business and changed its focus after years more and more to cover nets and tarpaulins.
Meanwhile the product range opened up to the load securing sector, considerable customers could be allured e.g. in the automotive sector, too.
With now nearly 21 years of experience in these segments and more than 19000 satisfied customers we produce load securing equipment of any kind at our modern production site in
Apolda with 35 employees and sell our articles all over Europe.
We decided to make this main catalogue 2016 / 2017 to offer our whole product range, clearly arranged as a paperback, to you, valued customers.
Pricelists for end customers and traders can be ordered separately or downloaded here in our website.
Have a good time rummaging on our webpage!
