Heiq is celebrating 10 years of bringing unique technologies to the textile world and as an added bonus has earned a place in the McKinsey 'ETH Venture Top 10 Hall of Fame' for Swiss start-ups.

Heiq has successfully launched a diverse range of innovative products, including the odour-free technology - Pure, cooling technology - Adaptive, fluorine-free water repellent - Barrier Eco and low-friction technology - Glider.

“In 2010, Heiq played a leading role in the creation of Oilguard, a Swiss Technology Award winning technology for protecting beaches from oil spills,” the company informed in a press release.

According to Heiq, it has earned a reputation as a reliable and innovative Swiss company that provides high quality technologies to leading textile brands around the world.

“Key to this success is the intelligent combination of innovative technologies, successful strategies and dedication of a team that is passionate about expanding frontiers of what textiles can do for consumers,” it added.

With headquarters in Switzerland and subsidiaries in Australia and Hong Kong, Heiq stated that it is well placed to support the innovation and implementation activities of its global textile partners.

HeiQ develops and manufactures innovative products and provides integrated support throughout the textile value chain and includes R&D, testing, regulatory compliance, and consumer-focused innovation marketing support.
