T.E.C. is a company with a long and interesting history. A lot has happened over the past 50 years. Read on to discover what inspired us in the past and continues to spur us on today.
Erwin Kiel establishes Kiel-Reiseanhänger and builds the first 'Weltbummler' as a one-off. Wolfgang Thrun joins at the same time as the company's first salesman.
His initial ,T, would subsequently prove highly significant for the company.
Wolfgang Thrun takes over the company and renames it Kiel-Reiseanhänger-Nachfolger.
The company headquarters and some of the production facilities are relocated to Mülheim.
Kiel-Reiseanhänger-Nachfolger and Eicker Wohnwagen merge to form Thrun Eicker KG. All production is relocated to Tönisvorst-Oedt in the Lower Rhine area. From this point on, all the company's vehicles will bear the initials t.e.
Thrun and Eicker take over Dethleffs in Isny.
Thrun Eicker KG becomes a GmbH (limited company). The separate t.e. caravan GmbH trading company is established at the same time.
Thrun Eicker GmbH, t.e. caravan GmbH, and Hymer GmbH merge as the new entity CMC.
Company logo changes from t.e. to T.E.C.
From this point on, T.E.C. vehicles are manufactured at the Dethleffs factory in Isny.
Mr Hymer takes over LMC in Sassenberg. Two years later, T.E.C. production is gradually moved across to Sassenberg.
With the transfer of the administration department from Mülheim to Sassenberg, the relocation of T.E.C. to the Münsterland region is complete.
The development of numerous new models sees T.E.C. become a full-range manufacturer. Customers can now choose from a large range of both caravans and motorhomes, from starter models through to luxury models.
The company decides to remove box-type and fully integrated models from its range and concentrate fully in future on those areas of greatest importance to T.E.C. customers.
The coming years promise to be busy ones as well. New ideas, new developments, satisfied customers, new stories – we're looking forward to it.
