Ten years ago, the world's leading textile technology company, Schoeller Textil AG and the Formosa Taffeta Co LTD, one of the largest worldwide textile producers, joined forces in a joint venture. “This has proven to be the right decision” agree Hans-Jürgen Hübner, CEO Schoeller Textil AG and Shih Ming Hsie, President Formosa Taffeta Co LTD.

“The combination of Swiss expertise, the most modern technology and production capacity in Taiwan results in perfect conditions for manufacturing innovative, competitive products,” adds Eric Chen, COO Schoeller FTC (HK) Ltd proudly.

Intelligent finishing technologies Swiss and Taiwanese textiles designers and technical developers cooperate closely through teamwork and at inspiring creative meetings.

This results in two collections per year, featuring the latest high-tech fabrics with a high level of functionality, which are used primarily in sportswear, casual wear, fashion and workwear. A range of finishing technologies, many of them distinguished with various design prizes, such as 3XDRY (moisture management), NanoSphere (water and dirt repellence), coldblack (UV and heat protection) or the bionic c_change climate membrane (windproof and waterproof) equip the fabrics with intelligent additional functions.

Further specialties of the sftc collection are ultra-light, 100% “down-proofed“ textiles for down jackets. These are so densely woven that even the smallest of feathers cannot protrude. The head office of Schoeller FTC Joint Venture is located in Hong Kong and the sftc fabric collections are represented globally by the sales organizations of Schoeller Textil AG. Furthermore, Schoeller FTC was the first Asian company to receive bluesign certification and most of the collection complies with the world's most stringent ecological textile standard, bluesign.
