Wuppertal family business in 5th generation

We have been dyeing since 1897 now in the 5th generation according to the traditional Wuppertal dyeing process. In 1991, Stapperfend Beschichtungs GmbH was founded with the aim of adding a further processing stage to the previous one for narrow fabrics. This high-grade finishing stage also includes silicone coatings of all kinds, which are used, for example, in the field of bandages and prostheses and meet the highest medical standards. The creation of a corporate alliance with Robert Dahlmanns GmbH & Co KG was the logical and consistent step towards becoming a system provider. In 2017, Stapperfend Beschichtungs GmbH took over the orders of Dahlmanns & Weskott GmbH to now be a full-stage finishing production.
