Established in 1901 our company is located in Dietenheim and since 1953 also in Balzheim. In our spinning mill and dyehouse we produce yarns for a wide range of customers in the areas of knitting, weaving and raschel lace. Motivated employees, high-quality products, fast and flexible reaction to the ever-changing market requirements and the usage of modern, economic production technology as well as close contact to research institutions are the crucial factors for our ongoing existence on the market.
The preservation of natural resources for the purpose of a sustainable development is the responsibility of all mankind. We see it as our duty and also as a chance.
The following company policy about quality, environment and energy is a mandatory guideline for our entrepreneurial actions and is valid for all of our employees.
Committed, responsible and experienced employees are the requirements and the basis of our success. We continuously encourage and support qualification, quality awareness and a feeling for responsibility in environmental and energy-related issues at all levels through education, training and in everyday life.
Our management system is described in our manual to determine responsibilities and standards and to ensure continuous improvement. The company management has appointed a representative who is responsible for the introduction and implementation of the quality, environmental and energy management system.
The strict observance of all regulatory and official demands and requirements as well as respectful handling of colleagues, suppliers and customers (meaning no discrimination, coercion, bribery or corruption etc.) are a natural obligation to us.
Together with the controlling authorities we take precautions to minimise risks of accidents. Beyond the regulatory and official demands we work systematically on continually reducing emissions and waste by considering eco-friendly or energy efficient production methods. For that purpose we firmly established an improvement management in our company.
We exert decisive influence on quality, environmental compatibility and the efficient use of energy regarding our production methods and products. Through clear rules and effective project management in the development process we guarantee to analyse and consider quality, environmental and energy aspects prior to the production.
The quality of our products and the environmental compatibility of our production also depend on our suppliers. Therefore we demand strict observance of our specifications of the delivered goods. We support our suppliers in the pursuance of common quality, environmental and energy goals.
We understand recognised mistakes and risks as a chance to improve. Whoever detects a quality failure or an environmental risk with no power to remedying these defects has to report to his superior immediately.
We work closely with our customers, advise and support them in the use of our products and also inform them of environmental aspects.
We want to set benchmarks for successful, environmentally suitable and energy efficient economic management. The achievement of our quality, environmental and energy goals are a priority assignment. Our guidelines in quality, environment and energy are binding.
This company policy is accessible for every employee in our company.
