Tradition & innovation since 1906

A company with strong traditions and a proud heritage.

Led today by Mr Yves Dubief, grandson of Tenthorey’s founder, the Vosges-based family business employs a workforce of around fifty people, who every day find ways to use their skills and enthusiasm to ensure complete satisfaction for you, their customers.

Victor Tenthorey

In 1906 Victor Tenthorey creates what rapidly develops into a multi-faceted textiles group. Born in Thann, in Alsace, he settles in Epinal and founds the J & V Tenthorey company, an agency for English textile machines.

During the 1920s he acquires spinning and weaving concerns in the Vosges and Alsace to create the Tenthorey group which, at its height, has 115,000 spindles for spinning, 3500 looms and a staff of 2500.

New direction

After working for the company since 1983, Yves Dubief becomes the company’s most senior manager and restructures it commercially, industrially and financially.

New factory

A violent hailstorm destroys the buildings housing the Tenthorey spinning and weaving operations in Éloyes.

With the loyal support of his employees, Yves Dubief decides to enhance the firm’s site in Tenthorey in the

Vosges, building a new 13,000 m² factory on 6.5 hectares in Eloyes.

The investment in buildings and machinery comes to more than 12 million euros.

New promotional bag business

Tenthorey embarks on a new business venture, producing promotional bags.
It all starts with an order placed by the Nicolas Hulot foundation for “Le Défi pour la Terre” (Planet Earth Challenge), as part of a drive to replace plastic bags.
