Our heritage goes back to the mid-19th century and is closely interwoven with the industrial revolution in general and the history of the European textile industry, whose cradle is to be found in England.

PAREX MATHER singeing machines have a pedigree going back to 1852. In those days, both Ernest Turner and Sir James Farmer Norton built plate singeing machines. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, PAREX MATHER became the successor to these pioneering brands in this field.

The PAREX 5000 burner was first introduced in the 1960s. Never before had a direct burner provided such uniform flame and heat across great widths – and thanks to advances in precision engineering, this simpler solution has proven its superiority in technical and commercial terms worldwide since.
In 2001, we introduced the tubular version of the PAREX 5000 aimed at the body-sized knitwear market.
