Garmon Chemicals, the Italian-based leader in the marketing of chemical solutions for the apparel industry, has relaunched its commitment to an increasingly green and transparent use of chemicals. The new goal for the company is to embark on a journey towards sustainability, integrating product innovation with increasingly distinctive strategic actions.

There are three main innovations spearheading Garmon’s commitment. The partnership with the ground-breaking project Alliance for Responsible Denim in the exclusive workshop ‘Doctor Visits’, which was held in London June 12, 2018, the new ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 9001:2015 process certifications, and the innovative ‘Stretch Care’ collection which features a whole package of eco-compatible solutions, specific for finishing in the world of stretch fabrics.

On June 12, 2018, in London, the stage was set for ‘Doctor Visits’ an event-workshop organised by Alliance for Responsible Denim, focusing on the dissemination and promotion of best practices for sustainable manufacturing. The meeting was dedicated to six selected denim brands, which had a chance to meet the greatest experts in the finishing of indigo fabric.

Garmon Chemicals made available its inimitable experience as technical partner for finishing, as well as conducting team sessions with the Jeanologia staff, a leading company for eco-sustainable technological solutions. The six brands brought the finishing recipes of their Never out of Stock styles, to receive support and recommendations from the experts about the most innovative alternatives in terms of sustainability. The goal was to show the brands new possibilities to migrate towards more responsible finishing, improving their recipes as well.

Garmon Chemicals has been awarded two important certifications for compliance with ISO international standards as regards safety, reliability, and quality. Reference is made here to ISO 9001:2015, a certification which sets international criteria for quality management systems, and most notably, to ISO 14001:2015, a standard acknowledged worldwide stipulating all requirements for an environmental management system. These certifications, once again, provide evidence of the constant commitment on the part of Garmon for an increasingly sustainable use of chemicals, aimed at truly reducing its impact on humans and the environment.

Introduced on the occasion of the Kingpins exhibition in April 2018, the new ‘Stretch Care’ collection is a line of products completely dedicated to enhancing the qualities and performance of stretch fabrics. The special formulations developed for this line, with their cutting-edge raw materials, are especially suited for treatments with a high eco-compatibility rate. (GK)
