Getzner Textil – Sustainability and outstanding quality made in Europe
Düsseldorf (GER): At this year’s A+A, the largest international industry trade fair for personal protection and occupational health and safety, the Getzner Textil business units Shirting and Technics will also be present with an extensive portfolio. The successful Vorarlberg-based family-owned company with a 200-year history will be presenting itself in Düsseldorf as an environmentally conscious as well as reliable solution provider that offers its customers fabrics of outstanding quality – everything from one source and made in Europe.
The Getzner Textil group of companies consists of numerous specialist firms for innovative fabrics and solutions. The company approaches trend and innovation research systematically. Its innovations ensure the continued viability and gradual expansion of its business areas and individual product segments. A lot has happened in the past few years, particularly in the technical fabric segment: “The Getzner business unit Technics manufactures particularly hard-wearing fabrics for challenging applications – we are the perfect partner for solutions in the workwear, outdoor and personal protective equipment area for our worldwide customers,” says Hannes Tschofen, director of the Getzner Textil AG business unit Technics.
Public service providers such as police forces or also emergency services trust Getzner’s high-quality technical fabrics, which are used to manufacture particularly robust trouser and jacket solutions – rub counts of more than 100,000 in the Martindale abrasion rub test speak for themselves in this respect. The increased elasticity in the weft and warp direction guarantees that the multipurpose products made by Getzner Technics are extremely comfortable to wear. In addition, they can be machine washed at 60 degrees and are also dirt and water repellent.
Sustainable “freshness you can wear”´– also in extreme conditions However, renowned customers from all over the world have also relied on the – either yarn woven or piece-dyed, cotton or cotton blend – fashion fabrics made by Getzner Textil for decades, and particularly appreciate the excellent cooperation with the fabrics manufacturer. As the entire production process is certified, Getzner is entitled to use the renowned bluesign® and “Made in Green by OEKO-TEX®” labels – a clear and conscious commitment to sustainability. “For these certificates, all processes are thoroughly checked: How does the company generate the energy it consumes? Where does the water come from? Which chemicals are used?” explains Gerhard Leitner, director of the Getzner Textil AG BU Shirting, adding: “No other manufacturer offers sustainability at this level.”
One of the customers that put their trust in the reliable and high quality of the shirting fabrics that are also particularly comfortable to wear, thanks to their higher moisture absorption and significantly better moisture uptake, is the Swiss police force. The experienced manufacturer’s Panama weave fabrics produced for police use, which are made from particularly fine, long staple extra Pima cotton, leave nothing to be desired even in extreme situations and also guarantee a fresh feeling that is without a doubt unparalleled. This “freshness you can wear” is made possible by a “Fresh Active” finish with odour stop that also guarantees bacteriostatic properties.
