Products of Union Special GmbH (1)

In 1901 UNION SPECIAL Maschinenfabrik GmbH was founded as one of the first European branches of an American Company in Europe - 20 years after founding the Union Special Corporation in Chicago / USA. To meet the demands of the rapidly expanding market the factory was set up in Stuttgart, Schwabstraße in 1921, and in 1963 expanded with a manufacturing facility in Hemmingen on the outskirts of Ludwigsburg.

The importance of a customer-focused sales and service network was soon recognized by UNION SPECIAL. Already in 1930 there were representatives in most European countries. Today UNION SPECIAL has a worldwide network of representatives and customer service.

In 1988 UNION SPECIAL was incorporated into the JUKI Corporation, Tokyo. This provided an ideal supplement to both programs. The joint company had thus become the largest provider of industrial sewing machines with the widest range in the global market.

In 1993, the entire production was transferred to the U.S. parent company in Huntley, Illinois / USA. UNION SPECIAL GmbH moved from Stuttgart to Moeglingen (near Ludwigsburg) and was restructured. The "European Distribution Center "(EDC) was created with the sales areas of Western and Eastern Europe, Middle East, Africa, and - for bag making and closing machines - also India.

After relocating the production to the United States, we specialize in the production and modification of special parts in Möglingen, mostly customized to the specific requirements of our customers. In 1999, the UNION SPECIAL GmbH converted into an independent German GmbH.

Today we receive the basic machines from Union Special LLC of Huntley and either sell them in their original condition or we modify and supplement them according to our customer’s requirements.

Recently the Union Special GmbH has changed from a producer of industrial sewing machines into a more sales-oriented service organization. The sales departments are at the heart of the company and all our activities are market-oriented.

We continue to specialize in the solution of varied sewing problems with the capacity of responding immediately to our customers’ demands and considering their individual needs. 

Lately the apparel machine manufacturers have experienced a significant decline. UNION SPECIAL GmbH has successfully counteracted by expanding their distribution network of sophisticated machinery (bag sewing machines, bag closing machines, machines for processing carpets and geotextiles). Furthermore markets in the Far East are being serviced.

Today UNION SPECIAL GmbH is the world market leader in the field of sewing and closing bags.
