In the 135 years of our entrepreneurship, we have always been aware of our responsibility towards people and nature.
As an independent family business, we think and act in terms of generations. We consider the long-term effects before taking a decision. For us as a family business, it is a matter of course to do everything to make the planet worth living for the next generation and to protect and support our employees and our society. This is where we belong - these are our roots.
We have a vision: We want to contribute to a better and more sustainable future by offering our experience, our activities and our technological know-how. These are not just empty words. We have been acting to this motto for decades!
We want to make sure the young generation and the ones coming after can live a better life therefore it is our responsibility to ensure sustainability. Our promise for sustainability is firmly anchored in our corporate policy.
„Developing and offering recyclable and climate-neutral products is a main focus of our R&D department. Depending on the different applications and the specific requirements of our clients worldwide, the perfect solution can often be reached only in close coordination and consideration along the entire textile chain – from the raw material to the textile tape including finishing and customizing.”
To make our strategy and our implementation progress transparent and measurable, we have defined three fields of action: People, Planet and Product.
Guideline of our activities in these fields are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the goals of the Agenda 2030 of the United Nations for sustainable development, which cover very comprehensively all aspects of sustainable development.
We weave quality
Laughing together, developing, helping each other - simply being a team
We are a fair and attractive employer.
We give first priority to the health and a respectful working environment of our employees, as they are the supporting pillars of our success. We offer flexibility and a good and family-friendly work life balance. As a company, we see ourselves as an active and positive member of society. We get involved with donations, especially to disabled and disadvantaged children, and encourage volunteering.
The protection of our planet is our main concern
We consider it as our corporate responsibility to continuously measure and reduce our consumption of resources such as water, electricity, process energy and raw materials therefore we have a certified environmental management system according to ISO 14001.
We want to be climate-neutral in Scope 2 by 2032.
To support bio-diversity, we are funding local reforestation projects, in this case the nearby Teutoburg Wald. Sustainability does not end at the factory gate - we think further, with the Supply Chain Sourcing Protection Act being our compass. Whistleblowers, whether internal and external, are free to report cases of violation or any other kind of problem.
We connect the world
We want to offer all our clients climate-neutral and recyclable products.
To be able to reach this goal, the textile chain needs to be sustainable throughout the whole process – from the procurement of raw materials to the manufacture in our plant and the delivery.
Therefore, we are in close exchange with leading manufacturers of recycled or recyclable yarns worldwide while continuously optimizing our own production processes.
