Inger and Carl Engel
history of ENGEL workwear
old ENGEL workwear bib overall

In the time of the American pioneers, the prairie was built up by bare fists and a rough iron will. Long railway sections were laid down using just simple hammers, wedges and bolts. In the 20's, tall buildings were built using ropes and pulleys and climbing capabilities.

At that time, workwear was mainly made of 100 % denim cotton that had to withstand all sorts of things and last a long time. Based on these requirements, Carl J. Engel Senior, in 1927, brought with him the idea of Denim workwear with superior wearing qualities from the US and founded the company F. Engel.

The fabric itself was called Bull Denim and was imported from the Erwin Mills factory in the US. Since that time, the models have been developed with several smart details, and the wearing qualities of the workwear improved by adding the yarn combination of polyester and cotton.

New colours have been launched and several trade industries are now recognized by the specific colour of their work wear. Workwear is no longer just clothing, but has gradually become part of every company's professional image. Development is an ongoing process as new smart colour combinations are continuously created.

We also boast a large export department, which sells workwear across Europe, with Germany as our biggest market.
