Company philosophy

Bethge AG is a traditional company. Founded in 1834 by the brothers Ferdinand and Eduard Bethge, it is still a family-owned SME today. Specializing in the finishing of home textiles, the company currently employs over 35 people at its headquarters in Mühlethal, in the municipality of Zofingen, canton of Aargau.

Both management and employees of Bethge AG pursue common goals. It is not for nothing that the current company philosophy is called:


Because we are..


We process textiles not only in a raw width of 50 to 340 centimeters, but also from a length of 240 meters.


As a highly specialized, traditional company, we stand for consistency and Swiss quality in 1834.


The most modern machine park in Europe enables the most modern finishing processes with the highest quality standards.


The manageable size of Bethge AG allows us flexible delivery times and samples, short waiting periods and decision-making channels.
