The evolution from a small handicraft business in 1864 to an international, globally acting corporate group in 2017 – a short historic review.
The foundation of the company takes place in 1864: Matthias Oechsler establishes a small handicraft business producing horn buttons. After a successful start, the company is steadily increasing, as well as being equipped with state-of-the-art machinery, for example at Weißenburg. Around 1900, "Matthias OECHSLER & Sohn" employs about 1000 people.
Reconstruction after WW II
During World War II, the plant is destroyed to large parts by an air raid. After the end of the war, the production is started anew and "Matthias OECHSLER & Sohn" is prospering again.
