Thygesen Textile Group

From a 90 m² Room to the Incredible Journey

Our company belongs to Thygesen Textile Group (TTG),which was formed in 1991 by the merger of three local, family-owned companies. But the story of the Group and the Thygesen family is rooted way further back in time.

It all began from a 90 m² room production facility in Ikast, Denmark, where Carla Soren Thygesen started the production of underwear for children and women in 1931. The company grew steadily through the years and became a leading textile manufacturer, delivering its goods to the world market.

Through nearly a century with significant milestones, TTG now consists of eight international subsidiaries, all involved in the textile industry, including a Vietnamese manufacturing company and a share in the global German company – Müller Textil GmbH which manufactures spacer fabrics for the automotive industry. The core competencies of the Group cover development, production, and sale of knitted/space fabrics, hosiery and finished garments. We employ more than 1,400 people in Denmark, Vietnam, Germany, Slovakia, Turkey, the USA, Mexico, China, Korea and Japan.

Thygesen Textile Vietnam

Thygesen Textile Vietnam is proud to be part of the incredible journey. The company, formerly known as Thygesen Fabrics Vietnam Company Ltd., was established in September 2004 and located in Vinh Tuy Industrial Zone, Hanoi Capital; then relocated to Hung Yen Province on 10th August 2009. To enhance our capacity, we invested in a new garment sewing factory named Thygesen Sewing Vietnam (TSV) in July 2016.

Learned from over 90 years of experience & expertise, we are now the leading manufacturer in Vietnam specializing in OEM/ODM solutions. Alongside Quality, we also focus on other values of the Group, including Trust, Honesty, Decency, Sustainability, and Innovation.

To capitalize on the benefits of locating our factories in Vietnam, our company has created a strong manufacturing capacity supported by a broad network of material suppliers, two factories with cutting-edge technology, a skilled labor force, and professional administration. We have in-house expertise to master the latest technology, material research, and development from fabric to garment construction and styling.

Moreover, we hold ISO9001:2015, ISO13485:2016, Oeko-Tex 100, SA8000:2014, and WRAP certificates to demonstrate our high commitment to complying with quality standards and social responsibility. We also joined Better Work program, which brings together all levels of the garment industry to improve working conditions and respect for labor rights for workers.
