Our History

The history of the Stucken Group dates back to 1841 when the Stucken family began their trans-Atlantic trading activities. In 1863 the firm, A. Stucken & Company was founded in Bremen, Germany and began trading in overseas Wools. Through this, the Stucken family began its long and successful venture into the international Wool and Mohair business, soon expanding their trade into Russia and Asia.

After the second world war, Rudolf Stucken rebuilt the company and in 1950 he emigrated to Port Elizabeth, South Africa with his family to establish the wool trading firm Stucken & co. In the 1960's, the South African trading company expanded its activities into commission Mohair and Wool washing and combing. Today, the Stucken group is directly involved in processing, spinning, dyeing, weaving, and knitting, making it a fully vertically integrated natural fibres processing and trading organization.
