This year, Spindelfabrik Suessen GmbH celebrate their 90th anniversary. Since its foundation in December 1920, the modest workshop evolved into a global player, developing and manufacturing components for the spinning industry. In 2001, SUESSEN became a unit of the Swiss Rieter Group in Winterthur.

In all these years, striving continuously for improved and innovative systems has been the key to SUESSEN's success. In the course of the company's history, SUESSEN has made significant contributions to the increase in productivity and quality of the various spinning processes like few others in this sector of the industry.

Let's list up some milestones of the 90 year old history of the company:

• 1920 – Foundation as "Wuerttembergische Spindelfabrik Suessen GmbH" by Johannes Schurr and Hans Grill and their six employees – Manufacture of spindles and components for the modernization of spindle drives in ring spinning frames
• 1932 – Invention of the ball bearing top roller by Wilhelm Stahlecker, founder of the engineering company WST This marks the beginning of the successful cooperation between WST and SUESSEN
• 1950s – Complete modernization of ring spinning frames with state-of-the-art spinning components – SUESSEN achieves a market share of almost 50% in the sector of components for spinning machines
• 1960s – First decisive developments in OE Rotor Spinning
• 1971 – ITMA Paris, TwinDisc Rotor Bearing for SpinBoxes and speeds up to 80,000 rpm
• 1975 – ITMA Milan, “CleanCat” and “SpinCat” robots for the cleaning and piecing-up of rotor spinning machines, the origin of the automatic rotor spinning machine
• 1978 – ATME Greenville, first fully automatic OE spinning machine Autocoro with SUESSEN SE 7 SpinBox
• 1989 – ATME Greenville, new SE 9 SpinBox for up to 130,000 rpm, HP SpinSet for ring spinning machines
• 1995 – 2 millionth SpinBox for Autocoro rotor spinning machines
• 1998 – new SpinBox generation SC and SQ for the modernization of SE7 to SE10 rotor spinning machines
• 1999 – ITMA Paris, EliTe®Compact Spinning System for short- and long-staple fibres
• 2001 – SUESSEN becomes a unit of the RIETER Group
• 2006 – Introduction of the new HP-GX family of top weighting arms
• 2009 – Delivery of the 3 millionth EliTe®Compact Spindle
• 2010 – SUESSEN solidifies its position as the leading supplier of compact spinning, having more than 3,500,000 EliTe®Spindles installed world wide.

We think it's just fair to say that without SUESSEN the world of spinning machinery would probably look different today. SUESSEN has made ground-breaking developments in all successful spinning systems, thus giving impetus to the progress of technique and technology.
