Product innovation

Thinking about tomorrow today – that is how innovations originate

Sustainable and innovative
Offering innovations – for us as a thread manufacturer that means an active and forward-looking approach to market requirements. This applies to current fashion trends for apparel as well as tailor-made solutions for automotive and technical textiles. Among others, the increasing environmental awareness of manufacturers and consumers plays a central role in further developing and aligning our offering. An example: A&E Gütermann has long been developing individual thread solutions based on 100 % recycled synthetic raw materials – this is how we confirm our quality promise with innovations.
