Craft designation: Mechanical comb and weaving reed making.

Production of harnesses from wooden shafts (combs) including healds of cotton with maillon, as well as weaving reeds for the local ribbon weaving mills, silk ribbon and broadloom weaving mills.

Purchase of the first mechanical comb knitting machines from England for the production of cotton healds (predecessor of steel wire and flat steel healds).

1908 / Carl Wilhelm vom Stein

The eldest son Carl Wilhelm vom Stein becomes an apprentice in his parents’ business and thus weaving reed manufacturer.

Military service from 1914-1918.

1948 / Günther vom Stein

After the war break, the company is rebuilt and restarted together with son Guenther vom Stein after his apprenticeship as a banker, and also military service and war captivity.

In addition to the production of weaving reeds, other business segments such as weaving harnesses made of aluminium, expansion of the trade with weaving utensils, spare parts and accessories for textile machines and production of bobbins made of wood, plastic and metals were included .
