Founded at the end of the 19th century be otto kuehnen, who originatined from the Nieder Rhein region, its immediate purpose was to represent and market predominantly textile machinery of English origin in the then existing Austro-Hungarian monarchy as an agency. Aside from textile machinery the young company also marketed sprinkler systems and fire extinguishers under the AUDACES (Latin for the German “Die Kühnen” alluding to the family name) brand.


Refocusing under altered political conditions. To handle business activities in the most active market, the Czechoslovak Republic, a branch office was opened in the early 19 30ies in Brno. Around that time the reigns of the company were handed over to Dr. Ing Alois Kühnen., the second generation.
At about that time the company also patented the first cots made of synthetic oil free rubber and started to market them under the OTALO brand. Some years later also aprons of the same material were introduced.


Once again a refocusing and reorganisation was need after WWII. The geographical coverage was step by step extended to include all of Yugoslavia and Poland. Starting in 1970 Heinz Kuehnen took over as CEO, the third generation.


Once the first noticeable tendencies towards decentralization in the former communist countries became apparent, the otto kuehnen company followed suit by founding its first branch office in Prague and a little while later the next one in Warsaw which shortly thereafter was moved to Lodz for practical reasons. The Budapest office was opened in 1994.


The start of the new millennium had seen a steep decline in the volume of the traditional textile industry in central and east-central Europe. Once more adaptation was the keyword of the day. At about that time the fourth generation entered the company in the person of Stefan Kuehnen.

Efforts were made to enlarge the scope of the offering with additions in recycling technology and technical textiles and also a continuation of the decentralization strategy by founding yet another branch office in Kranj, Slovenia.

Together with a local collaborator the Bulgarian market was added to the scope of the business. Currently a further eastward expansion and possible other additions of territory are under review.

Finally efforts in the Magreb were intensified, especially in Algeria. Our local partner is of substantial help to ensure prime services for customers and vendors alike.
