The Swiss Hermann Bühler AG produce yarn for the most discerning customers at the facility in Wintherthur and in a subsidiary factory in Jefferson/USA. The company, whose tradition goes back 200 years, set standards with regard to innovative products, first-rate quality and perfect customer service. Beyond this the yarn manufacturer has had the environmentally friendly and socially responsible production conditions certified to OEKO-TEX Standard 1000 since 2007 and is also entitled to mark the products with the OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus label.

Tradition and innovation

Tradition and innovation are closely linked at Hermann Bühler AG. ‘The striving for high-quality products has characterised us from the beginning and still remains the key to our successful work. The basis is high and reliable product quality, but uncompromising implementation of new technologies and innovative ideas are an absolute must,’ explains Martin Kägi, CEO. The company have specialised in the processing of American extra long fibre staple Supima cotton which – mainly due to its high fibre strength – offers ideal preconditions for further processing into products of the highest quality.

The fibres used for the production of Micro Modal Edelweiss and Micro Tencel yarns are produced by the Austrian company Lenzing AG using exclusively FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood.

These are the finest among all cellulose fibres, featuring versatile functional properties such as perfect moisture management. Yarn mixtures from selected materials such as silk and Micro Modal Edelweiss allow the production of sophisticated and extra fine yarn for the most beautiful creations. These are used wherever highest quality and exclusivity are required, e.g. in high-quality shirts and blouses, exclusive underwear and nightwear or fine bed linen.

Quality and responsibility

3,300 tons of the extensive yarn range are produced by 145 employees in the Swiss canton Zuerich. The 145 employees in the US state Georgia spin 3,700 tons. Numerous yarn qualities which the company supply to many international circular knitting mills, weaving mills and knitting mills are the basic material for a great variety of swiss+cotton textiles. The yarn range of the company meets the highest requirements not only where product quality is concerned, though, but also in terms of production ecology.

As one of the very first companies, Hermann Bühler AG have been documenting the human ecology optimisation of their yarns according to OEKO-TEX Standard 100 since 1993. Furthermore the companies were additionally certified to OEKO-TEX Standard 1000 in 2007 to confirm the environmentally friendly and socially responsible production conditions.

The OEKO-TEX Standard 100plus product label gives the company the opportunity to advertise the human ecology optimisation of their products according to OEKO-TEX Standard 100 as well as their environmentally friendly production processes according to OEKO-TEX Standard 1000 to their customers with just one test label.
