More than 130 years ago, textile structures from the company CENO had a good reputation. Finely designed festival and officers' tents, emigrant tents and even the tarpaulins for the covered wagons of the emigrants – known from the many western films – had their origin in Münsterland. In those times, native fabrics made from cotton were practically exclusively used.
In the 1960's, CENO was amongst the first companies that occupied themselves with the development and processing fabrics coated with synthetic material (PVC polyester) and made products from these materials marketable.
Since the early 1970's, CENO is considered to be a pioneer in the sector of membrane constructions and today is among the leading companies in the world. From the planning, through manufacture up to the complete implementation on site, CENO provides the complete chain of services from one source. Many thousands of membrane structures globally – basis roofs, complex architectural constructions, as well as temporary structures, mechanically tensioned or aerial system projects made from the most diverse materials – is evidence for the continuity and quality from CENO.
Since 1996 CENO belongs to an independent subsidiary of the Sattler Group in Graz. The Sattler AG is one of the leading companies globally in the sector of sun protection and the coated fabrics (et al. also for textile architecture). A team of approximately 200 specialists are available at the locations in Greven and Graz/Rudersdorf with a manufacturing area of approx. 14,000 m2 equipped with the most modern state-of-the-art technology. This capacity and the acquired Know How enables even the most demanding and ambitious tasks in the textile architecture and special product areas to be fulfilled.
