The history of Mey
The extraordinary journey of a family business. Since 1928.
The company is founded by Franz Mey as a hosiery factory.
Brothers Franz and Karl Mey establish the company Gebrüder Mey OHG
They start to manufacture goods, including products for women, men and children.
Specialization in women`s underwear and clear commitment to quality and to being a brand.
Albrecht Mey coins Mey as an independant, strong brand and an reliable partner.
Mey introduces the first range of men's underwear.
Innovation ``Swabian boomerang``
In 1997, the introduction of the Mey hanger also marked the launch of the environmentally friendly hanger cycle. The hangers arrive with the goods in store, where they are collected and then sent to the sheltered workshops in Albstadt to be prepared. Mey completes the cycle and the hangers are then assigned to new garments. That's the ``Swabian boomerang``.
