Over a Century of Braiding Mastery and Innovation

Founded in 1892 in Reading, Pennsylvania, Magnatech International has firmly established its mark as an industry leader in braiding machinery. Initiated as Textile Machine Works to cater to the fashion sector, this venture was the brainchild of pioneering German immigrants, Henry Janssen and Ferdinand Thun – the latter being the grandfather of our co-founder and Chairman, David Thun.

From these early beginnings, the Thun and Janssen lineage set global standards, delivering innovative and quality braiding machinery solutions. By the 1930s, their expertise evolved to manufacture machines that crafted reinforced hydraulic hoses, setting the tone for industry advancements.

A significant transition came in 1968 when the esteemed Textile Machine Works joined the Rockwell International portfolio, further fortifying its leadership in the sector for two decades. Then in 1988, taking the legacy forward, David Thun and Paul Kozloff acquired the business, giving birth to “Magnatech International, L.P.”, enriched by the dedicated team from Rockwell’s braiding wing.

As time progressed, leadership mantles shifted. David Thun’s retirement in 2003 led to Paul Kozloff taking the helm, and by 2006, the Magnatech Executive Management and select equity investors assumed stewardship. With a foundation rooted in excellence, we assure our global clientele that our commitment to unparalleled service and innovative product development remains unwavering.
