Getzner Textil – Sustainability and outstanding quality made in Europe
Düsseldorf (DE): At this year's A+A, the largest international trade fair for personal protection, occupational safety and health at work, the Getzner Textil business units Shirting and Technics will also be represented with an extensive portfolio. The successful Vorarlberg-based family business, which can look back on a 200-year history, will be presenting itself in Düsseldorf as an environmentally conscious as well as reliable solution provider, offering its customers the highest textile qualities - all from a single source and Made in Europe.
The Getzner Textil Group is a broad-based specialist for innovative fabrics and solutions: The company systematically engages in researching trends and novelties and ensures the maintenance and steady expansion of business and product areas with innovations. Particularly in the technical textiles segment, a lot has happened in recent years: "The Getzner Technics business unit manufactures specially resistant fabrics for demanding applications - we are the perfect partner for our customers worldwide for solutions in the areas of workwear, outdoor and personal protective equipment," says Hannes Tschofen, Managing Director of the Technics BU at Getzner Textil AG.
Public services such as the police and rescue services rely on Getzner's high-quality technical textiles, which are used as particularly robust solutions for pants and jackets - abrasion cycles of over 100,000 in the Martindale test speak for themselves here. Thanks to the increased elasticity in the warp and weft directions, the all-rounder products from Getzner Technics guarantee a very high level of wearer comfort and can also be washed at up to 60 degrees and are dirt and water repellent.
Sustainable "freshness to wear" - even in extreme situations
Renowned customers around the world have also relied on the fashion fabrics produced by Getzner Textil - color-woven or piece-dyed, made of cotton or blends - for decades and appreciate the excellent cooperation with the fabric manufacturer. Thanks to the certification of its entire production, Getzner can boast the bluesign® and "Made in Green by OEKO-TEX®" seals, among others - a clear and conscious commitment to sustainability. "For this, all processes are put through their paces: How is the energy obtained? Where does the water come from? What chemicals are used?" informs Gerhard Leitner, Managing Director BU Shirting at Getzner Textil AG, and continues: "No other manufacturer offers sustainability at this level."
The Swiss police, among others, rely on the reliable and high quality of the fashion fabrics for shirts, which also offer special wearing comfort thanks to increased moisture absorption as well as significantly improved moisture transport. Woven by means of panama weave from particularly fine long-staple extra Pima cotton, the fabrics produced by the experienced manufacturer for police use leave nothing to be desired, even in extreme situations, and guarantee a pleasant feeling of freshness that is undoubtedly unparalleled. This "freshness to wear" is made possible by a "Fresh Active" finish, which guarantees bacteriostatic properties in addition to odour control.
