The family company
At Busche, we have been developing state-of-the-art sewing stations for generations, thus optimising the processes of numerous industries. The sewing industry across Europe relies on our more than 70 years of experience. Busche’s sewing technology has its origins in Stuttgart, but what began with Konrad Busche and a small workshop has by now developed into 12 locations.
Trust as a common thread
Before the triumphant advance of the sewing machines, textiles in industry were sewn by hand by talented seamstresses with unbelievable skill. Each worker brought their own individual talent with them. However, modern industry demands exact repetitions for thousands of pieces. Today, quality means precision – placing the stitch to the exact millimetre over and over again.
A long-term outlook
Busche thinks in generations, not quarters! The solid values of a family business have always been the driving force behind innovation. The industry’s specialists only feel at home in a sustainable corporate culture. When the best in sewing technology all comes together under one roof and is challenged with exciting projects, it creates something extraordinary. The longevity of Busche’s solutions has therefore had its origins in sustainable thinking since day 1.
