Dietze+Schell was founded by Bruno Dietze and Dr. Günther Schell in Coburg, Bavaria, in 1951. Packaging machines for the confectionery industry were initially manufactured on a contract basis. Over the course of several decades, the company increasingly moved towards becoming the world's leading manufacturer of winding, texturing, cutting and extrusion lines for glass fibre, carbon, technical yarns and ribbons, as well as artificial turf and straps.
