After 10 very successful years in designing, producing and realizing laser shows around the world, it was time for a new challenge. In the year 2000 Michel Wenzel started with his new company: Thearent.
In the early days the range consisted of stage parts and molton curtains. Within a short period of time the assortment was expanded with stand construction materials, trusses, rigging materials, Pipe & Drape and curtains in a large variety of colors and sizes. In 2002 Thearent moved from Amersfoort to Hazerswoude Dorp. In addition to the rental activities, there was a continuous increase in growth in the sale of ballet floors, textiles and many other accessories for the theater and events industry.
In the spring of 2003 Thearent started making textile in its own workshop with one sewing machine and one lock machine. From that point on Thearent defined its own textile quality and that did not go unnoticed. Many renowned theaters and event venues have their curtains produced in the atelier of Thearent. Due to the increasing growth, Thearent relocated to a new home on the Italiëlaan in Hazerswoude Dorp in the summer of 2007. A building with over 2000 m2 of storage space, 4 loading docks, 500 m2 workshop, 300 m2 office and a canteen for staff.
In September of that same year, the company Van Maaren Theater Textiles from Amsterdam was taken over. Thearent now had more than 80 years of experience. Growth steadily continued, resulting in a studio equipped with 11 sewing machines, 3 lock machines, blind seam machines, fully automatic ring machine, cutting tables, et cetera. In addition, Thearent has a large stock of textile which enables the company to respond quickly to all client requests.
Since the beginning of 2008, the atelier has been producing textiles under the brand name Wentex. Wentex stands for quality, fire-resistant and service.
The Thearent Spanish division was added in 2015.
In 2016 the storage space was expanded with 1000m2 resulting in a total of 3000m2. The number of loading docks was expanded from 4 to 9 docks.
Thanks to our experience in the various aspects of shows and events, Thearent is a high-level player in the industry. Thearent works with national and international productions. Thearent is a company with a mission, born out of passion for the business and became big by maintaining quality.
