characterises our functional textiles, thus explaining the confidence they inspire. Day for day they reliably shield wearers of outdoor, sports and leisure clothing from weather influences such as rain, wind and cold. They are also an integral feature of certified personal protective equipment for professional use, and in this role provide protection from fire and heat, static charge buildup or germs. Caring for vital natural resources such as air, water and the soil is an important aspect of our mission, both at our plant in Freilassing and wherever our textiles and fabrics find use in final products. Reconciling the protective effects of our products with sustainability is a challenge that requires commitment along the entire textile chain. We work on this day for day in collaboration with our partners, consistently pursuing this path step by step.
