The Hohenstein Institute will be bundling its professional competencies in the current company segments Clothing Physiology and Textile Services & Innovations into a new department by the name of "Function and Care".The department will be managed by Dr. Andreas Schmidt who will be succeeding Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Umbach. Dr. Umbach will be retiring from his active role as Director of the Clothing Physiology department as he celebrates his 65th birthday in October.

However, he will continue to assist the Hohenstein Institute in an advisory role. Dr. Jan Beringer will assume the role of scientific manager at the new "Function and Care" department starting in October, and will hence be responsible for the largest research area at Hohenstein.The restructuring will not affect any of the research projects and service products of the previous departments, and they will be continued in the usual muanner.
