About us

In 1997 the competing trading firms C. Melchers & Co. KG and Stucken GmbH & Co. KG combined their silk and fine animal fibre activities, and in 2009 Stucken transferred its remaining wool trading activities to this jointly held business.

Our strength is the import and wholesale of natural fibres from around the world and the processing and marketing of domestic and European wool. In addition we supply a limited selection of plant and synthetic fibres that are produced from renewable raw material supplies.

Our sourcing capabilities are enhanced on the one hand by a long established wool trading business (Stucken) and on the other by the presence and strength of a leading Asian trading company (Melchers). Our clients are spinners, weavers and manufactures of apparel and home textiles and we maintain extensive stocks in Bremen and selectively at locations around the world to service them. We see our role not only as a source of supply and distribution of high quality raw materials but also in offering an all-encompassing service which is today an essential aspect of a modern trading company. Above all we have in place a highly qualified team that is able to draw on many years of experience in their respective fields.
