Max Carl Gritzner (1825–1892) did start to manufacture sewing machines in 1872 in a smal town in Baden in Germany , Durlach. By 1902 they had produced over one million machines. The Grizner Company did take over Frister and Rossmann in 1925, but they did continue to use the name Frister and Rossman on some sewing machines. In 1963 Pfaff Sewing Machine Company takes over Gritzner, and in June 2000 Husqvarna takes over Pfaff.
