The company headquarters, including office, warehouse and production facility, are initially located ina basement room in which the first prototypes are developed.At the same time the work on our online shop system will be started.In the middle of 2010 the first real sewing machine is bought. The cellar space becomes quite scarce in a short time, so that we integrate the washing cellar and several storage cellars into our enterprise.
At the beginning of 2011, we will be able to put the first products into operation for testing and initiate new developments on the basis of the experience gained. In January we will start to add our products to the online shop. At this time we have as colours sand, Bundeswehr olive and the 3-colour camouflage print in our assortment. In the middle of 2011 we will open our online shop, which is still in its infancy with a simple design and almost 100 articles.
At the end of 2011 we will become an integration company and have created a job for someone who has a hard time on the job market. This decision proved to be absolutely right, as the employee carries out our quality control conscientiously.
We will be participating as exhibitors at the Special Forces Days 2012, as well as with a joint stand at the IWA.
The move from the cellar to new business premises in the Hörster Straße in Lage / Müssen follows, where newly purchased machines find space.
In December 2012 our offer in the shop has already grown to 355 articles.
We move again, this time to Bad Salzuflen - Knetterheide.
Our standard colour range is extended by Multicam and the permanent staff by two permanent jobs. We become official sponsor of the Bobby Car Team OWL.
New machines are purchased to optimize processes and significantly increase pocket output.
At the end of the year there are over 500 articles in our shop offer.
The first Bundeswehr mission is successfully completed.
Meanwhile 9 standard product colours are in the assortment. In addition, we manufacture our products on request in many civil colours, including red, blue, orange and yellow. We also process camouflage colours from various countries (GB, USA, France, etc.) and commercial suppliers (e.g. A-Tacs, PenCott, Kryptek and the entire Multicam family).
The article assortment in the shop continues to grow inexorably to approx. 670 articles.
This year some new products will be developed by us as a highlight and will also be presented at trade fairs. In March, for example, we will be represented at the Enforce Tac and the subsequent IWA with an exhibition stand in Nuremberg. Last but not least, we will be able to exhibit a small selection of our product range at the Millipol in Paris.
Newly, we will be exhibiting a small part of our products at the Specical Forces Days, this time focusing on tactical emergency medicine.
Again our production rooms become too small, spring 2016 is all about the move to Otto-Hahn-Straße 41 in Bad Salzuflen - Schötmar.
In May new laser cutter arrives, with which we produce among other things our patches.
In July the long awaited new Coyote (BW Braun) was delivered. Based on the German TL, this fabric has a significantly increased performance.
In October, we once again enlarged our production facilities, and also created offices, this time in the same building complex. A new CAD plotter for patterns was purchased.
At the end of February our new show room was finished. Here we also sell individual parts and discontinued models.
Our new online shop went online on 8 March. You can order items for Military & Police, Rescue and Outdoor & EDC (Every Day Carry).
We have revised our online shop once again, we have combined the previously three-part shop into a single one. Now, an order can contain products from the entire range.
As every year, we have also developed several new products in this one, which now enrich our offer.
We attach great importance to quality.
This claim runs like a red thread from procurement from our suppliers, through production and processing to quality control. The finished product that leaves our factory must be robust enough to meet the toughest demands.
A major advantage of our location is that we have short distances for our raw material, which has a positive effect on the CO² balance. Of course, we cannot purchase all the components we process in Germany from German manufacturers, but we can do so for the most part.
From the outset, we advocate the sensible use of resources.Quality and functionality in combination with responsibility for the environment and society is what distinguishes Zentauron products!
