OUR HISTORY

We draw on a hundred-year tradition of textile processing in the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Czechoslovakia. The predecessors who created the basis of the company: Ferdinand Zedlitz, Stráž nad Nisou, Anton Sachers, Liberec, Josef Zimmermann, Stráž nad Nisou, J. J. Brumml, Klatovy, Skene & Co., Alexovice, Jaromír Kadlec, Sedliště u Jimramova, Rudolf Freund, Ústí nad Orlicí, Oskar Zlatner, Žilina and Mahrische Reisswollfabrik GmbH, Ivančice.

Our company was established in 1950 under the name of Trhárny n.p. in Ivančice with the aim to unite and centrally control the processing and refining of textile waste materials from wool and cotton. With the processing of synthetic fibres booming, RETEX also started processing waste from synthetic fibres. In addition to waste processing, we also started making and developing products from this material, such as polishing discs, Jekor flooring material or needle-punched and intertwined nonwoven textiles.

Our company had its plants and facilities in many locations in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the Czech Republic, our plants were located in Ivančice, Liberec, Moravský Krumlov, Fulnek, Klatovy, Krnov, Debrné, Mohelnice, Ústí nad Orlicí, Stráž nad Nisou, Brno, Sedliště u Jimramova, Bransouze etc. In Slovakia, e.g. in Žilina.
