Hohenstein Institutes, the internationally recognized textile testing and research center, has announced that Samuel B. Moore will join the company as the Projects Manager for the United States market.

Hohenstein Institutes is a founding member of the International Oeko-Tex Association which grants the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification, an international certification process that ensures textile products are tested for harmful levels of more than 100 chemicals known to be detrimental to human health. Moore will work with Dr. Manfred Wentz, U. S. Director for Oeko-Tex, who has been responsible for the eco-label's success in the U. S. to date.

“U.S. demand for Oeko-Tex certified textile products are growing quickly among consumers and retailers," says Dr. Stefan Mecheels, Hohenstein Institute's director. “We are pleased that Sam is now in place to provide U. S. companies with additional on-site support for their Oeko-Tex certification applications as well as for other types of testing and certification that our company provides.”

“Sam's expertise will be invaluable as we roll out new Oeko-Tex certification programs with major retailers and manufacturers in the upcoming months,” says Dr. Manfred Wentz.

Moore brings 28 years of technical experience to his new position with Hohenstein Institutes. He previously served as an executive with Burlington Chemical Company and as CEO of Burlington Research Inc, an environmental consulting firm. Moore has been an active proponent of green textiles and textile processes throughout his career. He has served on various industry boards and environmental task forces and has taught sustainable enterprise at several universities.

“I am excited to be working with Hohenstein Institutes and the International Oeko-Tex Association to help manufacturers produce textile products that are better for consumers and better for the environment," says Moore. “In my new position, I will help manufacturers in the U. S. ensure that the U. S. textile products market is as safe and environmentally responsible as it can be."

Moore will be headquartered in Elon, North Carolina. He will be attending Outdoor Retailer Summer Market to meet with manufacturers, retailers, and media representatives.
