The company "Mundlos & Schulz" was founded in Magdeburg in 1863. Initially, the company's machines were based on the "Singer" or "HOWE" principle. In 1882, the company launched its first own sewing machine - "Victoria-Bogenlangschiff-Maschine" (Original Victoria).
What followed was a series of further technical inventions: the model "Ringschiffmaschine" in 1901, the model "Schnellläufer" in 1910, innovative developments for fabric feed in upper and lower position, as well as retractable machines in 1911, central bobbin hook with fabric feed in upper and lower position and link take up, central needle bar with a stand made of wood and cast iron, semi-automatic eyelet embroided machines in 1913 and button hole sewing machines in 1914. In 1925, the first high-speed zigzag sewing machine was introduced and widely used in private households.
