Zurich (IS) Loftex China Ltd., one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of towelling products in China, was awarded OEKO-TEX Company of the Month for November 2015. Environmental protection and sustainability are now firmly anchored in the company’s philosophy and it introduces new measures with them in mind on a regular basis.

 

"For many years now, environmental protection and sustainability have been cornerstones of Loftex's corporate philosophy. The huge number of measures we have implemented in these areas pay testament to that. We also like to highlight our commitment, and it is something our customers really appreciate," said a Loftex spokesman.

 

Founded in 1980, Loftex has five production locations in China, manufacturing high quality textile products such as bath towels, beach towels, bathrobes etc. The company was one of the first production facilities in China to be awarded with STeP by OEKO-TEX certification for sustainable textile production. It has now become the very first business in the B2C sector to receive the Made in Green by OEKO-TEX label.

 

With its own water reservoir and an efficient water treatment plant, Loftex ensures that it effectively utilizes its water resources, which are an intensively used but integral part of its processes. In the last few years, the company has introduced measures that have allowed it to increase its energy efficiency by 23%, including the use of its own energy generation plant.

 

Furthermore, the company has made significant investments in modernizing its plants and buildings and optimizing its production processes. For instance, its state-of-the-art weaving machines and pressure dryers make sure that the work performed is easy on both the environment and the materials. It is also certified in compliance with the OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety management system, proving its outstanding commitment to the health and safety of its staff.
