Triumph International has brought about this success from humble beginnings: Exactly 125 years ago, a classic corset factory with just six sewing machines and six employees was set up in a barn in the Württemberg region of southern Germany. The founding fathers of the trademark Triumph, Mr Spiesshofer and Mr Braun, registered in 1902 and extended to the company name of Triumph International in 1953, recognized early on that just like outerwear, underwear is the reflection of an attitude towards life. The constant development of new materials and manufacturing processes soon made soft, comfortable lingerie in fashionable forms, colours and cuts possible. True to its philosophy, "Triumph - Dedicated to Women’s Lives”, which still holds true today,Triumph quickly became a pioneer in the transformation of the shaping corset into luxurious and seductive lingerie.
The company takes its environmental and ethical responsibilities as seriously as the brands’ fashionable designs and exacting quality requirements. Triumph products are manufactured in high-tech production plants using environmentally friendly and energy-saving production methods and the most modern and environmentally certified materials. Ethical guidelines to the highest international standards indicate the company's sense of responsibility beyond the product itself and ensure an important contribution to the creation of socially desirable, long-term jobs as well as to sustainable economic development, particularly in disadvantaged regions.
This global corporation is one of the few companies in the apparel industry that still remains family owned. The headquarters of the group’s holding company is in Bad Zurzach, Switzerland. Other important business centres are located in Heubach and Munich (both in Germany) and in Hong Kong.
