Hohenstein Institute establishes a contact office in Minsk
Aug '10
Demand for competent quality assessment of textiles is increasing worldwide. More and more textile firms from Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Moldavia and the Ukraine have also recently begun having their textile products tested and evaluated by Hohenstein experts. The companies range from yarn manufacturers to makers of ready-to-wear clothing

In order to meet this demand, the Hohenstein Institute established a contact office in Minsk, Bela-rus, at the beginning of July. The new office officially represents the International Oeko-Tex Asso-ciation and is headed by Roman Paschenuk. Since 1 July 2010, it has been advising companies in all matters regarding product certification according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100.

In 2009 alone, more than 30 Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificates were issued to Russian enterprises. In addition, the office also makes available to interested firms the numerous, supplementary consulting, testing and certification services of the Hohenstein Institute.

These services range from testing for compli-ance with legal requirements to the evaluation of product characteristics such as size, workmanship or wear comfort, and beyond to providing evidence of special functions such as the antimicrobial effects of textiles.
