History


Founded by Jan van den Heuvel in 1997, TTS is derived from sister company Texopaper. Texopaper was founded in 1982 and has been a leading supplier of papers and films to the European garment, automotive and furniture industry for over 20 years. TTS made a flying start with her own production of transfer papers for screen printing with Thomas Seidel as export manager.

In 2001 TTS added digital dye sublimation and calender protective paper to the product range. Digital dye sublimation was in the early days only suitable for sampling and high-end customized production, but soon the sportswear industry embraced this new technology, followed by soft signage and many other industries.

In 2003 Dr. Arnold van Houtum joined TTS as senior advisor. As former CEO of Coldenhove Papier he had been closely involved in the development of digital dye sublimation printing and helped TTS to define a strategy in this new market.

From 2006 TTS started to deal with digital printable textiles as the soft signage industry was choosing more and more for direct to textile printing, instead of the dye sub transfer process.

In 2007 Floris Jan van den Heuvel took over the management of the company and in the same year the company moved into a new modern building with 2000 m2 warehouse facility and 500 m2 office space.

In 2012 TTS almost doubled the warehouse capacity with a new additional warehouse. Over the last 18 years TTS has been growing continuously year after year and today our team consists of 25 dedicated men and women, serving hundreds of customers in over 55 countries. What remains the same is our focus on great products, our high level of knowledge, customer service and availability of our products from our own stock.
