75 years of Hohenstein Globally networked with strong roots

09 January 2021: Textile testing and research partner Hohenstein marks the company’s 75th anniversary. Now in its third generation of family ownership, the company will spend this landmark year expanding its foundation for the future. Hohenstein is a family-owned company that has specialised for over 75 years in the testing, certification and research of all kinds of textile products.

With a total of more than 1,000 employees at its headquarters in Bönnigheim and in more than 40 branches, contact offices and laboratories worldwide, the company faces the current challenges of the global industry. The testing laboratory in Hong Kong, which has been in operation since 2011, and the Hohenstein textile testing laboratories in Bangladesh and India, which were opened in 2018, ensure even greater market proximity.

Commenting on the landmark, Prof. Dr. Stefan Mecheels, owner of the company said ” As an internationally recognised and reliable partner, we support companies along the entire supply chain in successfully bringing their products to the market – through new insights from our research, to the performance of required tests and issuing of independent certificates, through to product launch and marketing at the point of sale.”

Prof. Dr. Ing. Otto Mecheels laid the foundation for an internationally-renowned company in 1946 when he founded the Hohenstein Institutes, a textile school in Hohenstein Castle. His son, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Jürgen Mecheels modernized the Hohenstein Group’s business structures and expanded into new research and service areas such as textile finishing or professional laundries/dry cleaning.

Stefan Mecheels said “Our Digital Fitting Lab helps brands leap forward with digitized apparel development. Using modern 3D and 4D technologies and our traditional fit and pattern expertise, we help our clients design better fitting clothes with fewer prototypes and less waste.”

When SARS-CoV-2 struck, the company developed a quality label to easily identify non-medical, community masks that meet legal and functional requirements. The Hohenstein Quality Labels are independent proof with a high level of credibility among buyers and consumers.
