Swisstex California becomes bluesign system partner

Swisstex California Inc., an industry leader in dyeing and finishing for knit fabrics since 1996, has announced that it has become a bluesign system partner.

The Los Angeles, California-based company said the partnership with bluesign will enable it to provide a healthier and more successful textile future.

Besides further minimizing its negative impact on the environment, Swisstex is also replacing its existing dyeing machines with new state-of-the-art models as a part of its modernization plan.

Thomas Schrieder, President of Swisstex, said the company did everything possible to reduce its harmful impact on the environment, but still there was a missing link which has now been filled with bluesign certification.

He added that the bluesign system partnership will give Swisstex access to tools that were previously unavailable, and thus help the firm choose the input items that would have the least negative impact on the environment.

The bluesign standard puts a reliable and proactive tool at the disposal of the entire textile production chain from raw material and component suppliers who manufacture yarns and dyes, to textile manufacturers, to retailers and brand companies, to consumers.

It combines all aspects of occupational health, air and water emissions as well as consumer safety in a single standard under the general objective of resource productivity.
