Caring for Nature and Resources

With our domicile in the green heart of the Franconian Forest, our business was practically born with a feeling for the responsible handling of nature and resources. Our greenminded company philosophy comprises a sustainable working method as well as the sophisticated planning of our company buildings.

Sustainability made in Marlesreuth

– Savings of around 460,000 liters of drinking water per year through the utilization of rainwater
– Energetic refurbishment and adaptation of existing buildings to avoid soil sealing
– Natural compensation areas on the company premises
– Use of certified packaging film made from 30% recycled plastic, which is 100% recyclable after use

A conscious use of the resources of our planet is not just a short-lived trend, but a comprehensive way of life.

For us, this means sourcing and finishing with reliable partners close by as well as the intelligent recycling of scrap materials and yarn residues, along with a sophisticated energy concept. A significant part of our energy demand is generated by our on-site solar panels, and the balance is covered solely with certified green electricity generated from hydropower. Even the waste heat from the weaving mill has a secondary use by heating other company buildings with it.

May we introduce: Gründal

He lives in the company’s own fire water pond, in immediate vicinity of the orchard. A rather lucky chap this frog, we dare to say, being suited in such a picturesquely neighborhood. But there is one catch, he has to share his habitat with a pair of wild ducks and countless dragonflies.
