The beginning

At Redebanen 9 in Kolding, Holger Thomsen started Thomsens Cykelforretning, a craft business in the heart of Kolding. A business that specialized itself in repairing bicycles and bicycle tires.

Around this time, when the car made its entrance in Denmark, the company soon began focusing on selling and repairing car tires.

New buildings

Despite tough times and severe lack of commodities, in 1940, Marinus Thomsen is appointed as 2. Generation in the company. When the facilities in the heart of Kolding is expropriated in 1943, the company – now called Sydjysk Vulkaniserings Anstalt – moves to newly build facilities in Sydbanegade.

In 1947, manufacturing of molded technical rubber begins.

The end of an era

In 1975, manufacturing of tire treads stops, and the company is expropriated from their facilities in Sydbanegade. Under the name Sydjysk Vulkaniserings Anstalt, Kolding’s biggest and most modern tire center at the time is constructed at Mosevej 1.

It is an event that echoes throughout local media. The company’s industrial department is developed continuously and the demand for this type of products increases.
