Huntsman Textile Effects announced a strategic partnership with Ramatex Group, based in Singapore, to become the world's first textile company dedicated to and capable of enabling the brands to deliver the commitments contained in the Joint Roadmap: Toward Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals.

Speaking on the occasion Mr. Ma Wong Ching, Chairman of Ramatex said, “Ramatex has always been committed to meeting the needs of the brands and responsible to the consumers we supply. It is clear that the Joint Roadmap is challenging and ambitious but represents an important first step in reducing the environmental impacts of the textile industry. I am proud to say that with our solid foundation and the strong support of our partner, Huntsman we are well placed to meet the challenge.”

Socially responsible, Ramatex has taken care to ensure its manufacturing processes embrace environmental protection, create a more sustainable approach to our high-quality production by minimizing energy usage, adopting waste & water recycling and using organic materials & compliant chemicals and dyes only.

Added Mr Paul Hulme, President of Huntsman Textile Effects, "As a member of the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Huntsman Textile Effects is proud to be a part of this major initiative in driving sustainability throughout the whole textile value chain.

It is a privilege to be associated with Ramatex, who shares in this likeminded vision through this exclusive partnership, to help define and to work towards providing meaningful environmental choices. This partnership will leverage our combined capabilities to deliver not only the challenges of the roadmap but indeed create a model for real, sustainable change within the textile industry.”

Huntsman Textile Effects is the leading global provider of high quality dyes and chemicals to the textile and related industries.

Ramatex is a well established and progressive textile manufacturer. It was first established in 1976 in Singapore. In 1990, the group took the decision to provide a vertically integrated service.
