With RETeX+, Georg+Otto Friedrich offers textiles made of recycled PET. PET is a valuable material because it is composed of oil or natural gas, it means it is a non-renewable raw material. Generally, it is 100 percent recyclable.
In addition, recycling has a positive impact on CO2 emissions: every ton of recycled PET saves 3 tons of greenhouse gas. According to a Swiss study, this corresponds to the total emission of an average car in one year. Furthermore, around 50 percent energy is saved when producing new products from recycled PET.
Together with our environmental partner PLANT-MY-TREE we havestarted the afforestation project "Every Tree Counts!". Many of our customers support us by using our recycled RETeX+ fabrics.
This means that one square metre of forest is planted for each roll of recycled material sold. In 2019, 546 new trees have already been reforested in Utscheid in the Eifel. In 2020, we want to quadruple this number!
Help us by using RETeX+. We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. Every Tree Counts!
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.
