Long fabric-manufacturing tradition in Trenčín

1907

French businessmen Paul and Jena Tiberghien came to Trenčín from northern France, where they owned several textile factories, to establish Tiberghien and Sons in the city. The company opened its own spinning mill three years later, in 1910, although the material for production continued to be imported. The fabrics were woven according to French designs, in compliance with local technical regulations. Production was suspended during the First World War and the factory was used as a military hospital and officer training school. Operations would only start resuming in 1918.

1922

An important year in the company’s history, it established its own workshop so it could develop its own designs. The workshop was first headed by Ignác Leitman, while František Klauda and Erhart Alscher were among its first designers or “dessinateurs”. By the early 1930s, the factory had facilities for spinning wool, bleaching, treating worsted fabrics, weaving and dyeing. Even in the 1920a, its power plant was supplying energy to all of Trenčín.

1945

In May, Tiberghien and Sons was placed under temporary administration and nationalised in January of the following year into the state-owned Slovena enterprise. Later, in July 1949, the factory became part of Merina, a state-owned enterprise that had been established earlier that year. In the same year, Merina added plants in Brezová pod Bradlom, Nitrianské Pravno, Nitrianské Rudno, Nové Mesto nad Váhom and Topoľčany.

1989

The national enterprise ceased to exist on 1 June 1989 but Merina was still state-owned. It would be privatised as a joint-stock company, Merina a.s., in 1993 and by 2004 it had become Slovakia’s largest textile company and had its highest turnover that year. But over the next five years, the company suffered a decline in business and in early 2009 announced the closure of its production.

2007

After MERINA collapsed, the former employees banded together to save its key technologies and established AUDOV.

2019

The company was taken over by its current owner, Ing. Adam Hajdu, and started a new stage in its development.
