The name Halbmond has become synonymous with quality based on long-standing traditions for more than 130 years. What began in 1880 with the establishment of a weaving mill for Axminster carpets in Oelsnitz is now an efficient, innovative and international company. This course was charted from the outset. The founders, Koch and te Kock, demonstrated far-sightedness and courage when they opted to set up their business in the idyllic and prospering Vogtland region. Even at that time, they were aware of the power inherent in a clear commitment to their home region and pressing ahead with innovations for the international market. None of this has changed, even now. And we are proud that this tradition continues to form the basis for our quality-conscious manner of conducting business.
