Success was not long in coming, and with modesty and a solid business sense he continually expanded production in Großostheim, then the centre of Germany’s garment industry.

In 1935, one suit in four was produced in the city of Aschaffenburg or the surrounding region, an area that includes Großostheim. Full of passion and creativity, Eduard Dressler combined classic tailoring step by step with new methods of industrial finishing.

After the war, the real upturn began. Eduard Dressler invested in expanding the company and adding to the product portfolio. Because of the increasing number of orders, the company’s factory had to be enlarged in 1951.

It housed the firm’s administration, shipping department, pressing facilities and assembly and inspection rooms.

In 1969, Eduard’s 24-year-old son Heinz joined the company, introducing a wave of new fashion ideas.

The qualified business administrator had one of the most advanced computing systems installed, refined the production technologies and processes, and developed a collection with a stylish flair.

He expanded the company’s marketing activities, emphasising the DRESSLER brand in order to increase the firm’s international profile.

Eduard Dressler died on 14 August 1981 at the age of 73. His son Heinz took on the role of managing director, determined to continue leading the firm as his father had.

That same year, the brand was awarded the TW Forum Prize for outstanding achievement in the textile industry. Heinz Dressler received another very special distinction for his efforts: the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.
