The company's origin dates back to the year 1879.

At this time in Bielefeld a dyeing factory was founded, which moved to Schloß Holte in 1938. In the course of time the production company was expanded by the area of textile printing, firstly with roller-fed printing machines. Later on roll printing was replaced by screen printing process, initially only in flat printing process, and later also in rotary printing process.

From the mid-nineties on the company had to adapt to the market and expanded its product range from pure home textile production to finishing technical textiles and functional textiles.

Since 2003 the company exists in its present form under the name HOL-tex GmbH.
