GOING GREEN by Friedrich

As the leading manufacturer of textile solutions in Europe and as the world market leader in knitted polyester materials for digital printing, we have a special responsibility in environmental and social issues. For this reason, we do not only focus on the highest possible quality, but also on the highest possible environmental standards.

With GOING GREEN by Friedrich, we have created a concept that contains five environmental aspects of our value added chain and ensures sustainable action.

LOCATION QUALITY

TEXTILES. MADE IN GERMANY.

We produce at three locations, exclusively in Germany. For us “Made in Germany” is more than just a hint about the location – it is a performance commitment. And we can be judged on this promise.

Uncompromising product quality requires optimal manufacturing processes. At Friedrich, a well elaborated workflow system ensures consistently reproducible quality standards. Each individual product can be tracked with a coded label, from the finishing plant to the warp knitting machine and filament. All textile-relevant tests can be carried out either in our in-house laboratory or by independent, external testing institutes. In this way, we ensure that our customers receive the highly quality, which they expect.

We focus on our core competences and work with the most capable and long term cooperation partners in every product area. High customer loyalty and long-term business relationships as well as the development of our company show us that we are on the right way.
