Until today Lauffenmühle has successfully communicated its high level of product responsibility to customers and consumers with the "Textiles Trust" label. To mark the 25th anniversary of the OEKO-TEX® in 2017, the Hohenstein Group honored Lauffenmühle with a visit on site to thank personally for the engagement in terms of sustainability and the trust placed in OEKO-TEX® certification for more than 15 years.
Dr. Markus H. Ostrop from Hohenstein visited Lauffenmühle GmbH & Co. KG on January 18, 2018 and spoke to the managing director Volker Steidel and Corona Bregenzer, Marketing Manager.
"Sustainable action and responsibility for society and employees are key values at Lauffenmühle, which have always gone hand in hand with the innovative strength of the company," said Dr. Ostrop.
The OEKO-TEX® product portfolio supports textile manufacturers such as Lauffenmühle purposefully in the implementation of more sustainability in the form of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certificate as an ideal supplement for operational quality assurance and as an independent verification, with which human-ecological product safety can clearly be communicated to stakeholders. Lauffenmühle GmbH & Co. KG develops and produces nearly all its fabrics in accordance with the extremely strict criteria of product class 1 of the Standard 100 by Öko-Tex; this is the so-called "baby class", which contains the strictest requirements of all four product classes of the standard.
