Particularly we pay quiet special attention to the quality. “Made in Kirschau” is also a cachet which stands for high-class cleaning cloths in many countries. Whether material, color, size or design: we deliver always the product that our customers expect from us.
In 1845 Gotthelf August Friese invented the cloth. Pile canvas and rags were made out of textile industrial waste. Coloured sleep blankets extended the assortment. From this developed an important coarse yarn industry which provided Kirschau with an unexpected economic upswing. Since that time, Kirschau, which is located in the nice “Oberlausitzer Bergland”, was called “the village with the golden roofs”.
Later, the VEB VEGRO Kirschau arose from the association of several textile enterprises. By the production of floor cloths, Kirschau became known far about the borders of the GDR.
The Kirschauer Textil GmbH was founded by Dr. Hans Münzberg and Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Münzberg in 1992. Today the Kirschauer Textil GmbH, with approximately 80 employees, counts to one of the biggest employers in the town.
