Founded in Freiburg in 1919 as "Burkhardt & Schmidt Garnfabrik", the company quickly made a name for itself as a producer of top quality embroidery threads, with a combination of traditional values and the innovative prowess of the company's founders forming the basis for success.
In 1975, "Burkhardt & Schmidt Garnfabrik" was renamed as MADEIRA. From then on, the sales activities, which had been previously geared to the domestic German market, were now increasingly globalised. Significant investment into technological and sustainability advances means almost 70% of Madeira’s threads are still produced at the Freiburg headquarters.
MADEIRA has its own team for quality control. This group of competent specialists sequentially checks and tests raw materials in use as well as production processes, according to the most sophisticated criteria applying latest technologies.
Part of it is also the monitoring of assured washing characteristics as well as additional single tests according to DIN and ISO standards.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Marks & Spencer certification standards are also taken into consideration.
