for 188 years
As a family company, addi has been producing knitting needles and crochet hooks
for 188 years in the German town of Altena, and the company is now led by the sixth generation.
It sometimes takes 25 individual steps to create the perfect needle.
You will benefit from this experience and our employees‘ commitment to quality.
This is measurable by an extremely low rate of complaints.
93% of our products are made in Germany
primarily by hand; only 7% is purchased.
In doing so, we create jobs here and ensure that you can trace the origin of our products. addi is the only European manufacturer with a complete assortment. This has become an important point for many customers in today’s globalised world.
That’s why it’s logical when knitting and crocheting to also use tools whose
manufacturing process and origin can also be traced.
regular facility tours take place at addi.
Come and visit us. We’d be glad to see you!
