Functional design has always been at the heart of the Danish textile and clothing company F. ENGEL. In 1927 the company was founded in Haderslev, in the southern Denmark. Since then, it has continued to be inspired to design and produce quality clothing for all industries, that exceeds expectations. F. ENGEL unifies the worlds of craftmanship, passion and innovation. Passed on for four generations, the F. ENGEL Group has designed and developed innovative functional clothing–with the knowledge and know-how required–to deliver the most comfortable, functional clothing for workwear, hunting, outdoor and men’s fashion. F. ENGEL designs, markets, and sells three clothing brands: ENGEL, SUNWILL, and DEERHUNTER. All have the clear purpose of designing functional clothing for all-day wear.
Since the very beginning, F. ENGEL has been true to its heritage and values. The foundation of its success is rooted in its powerful assets; with a strong pioneering spirit, proud family traditions and solid business acumen fostering long term customer relationships. It’s not just about the products for F. ENGEL, it’s about shaping the business for the future, taking responsibility and continuing to inspire customers, employees and partners with innovative and sustainable solutions.
Accountability and governance is guiding principles for F. ENGEL, as the corporate world enters into a world of change and transition, where visions for the future will be closely tied to new regulations on sustainability and ESG. Through our mission statement we communicate the purpose of F. ENGEL and though our vision, we aim to give insight into our hopes for the future.
Designed with a passion for trade and industry, ENGEL has produced high quality workwear for all industries since 1927. It all began in Haderslev, with an inspiring journey to America and a pair of denim overalls. With a clear vision to create durable workwear that is fit for purpose, the Engel family business is now run by the fourth-generation brothers, John and Lars Engel. They are as passionate today about creating clothing of the highest standard, with the right fit and exceptional functionality, as their founders were.
