BOENNIGHEIM In view of the increasingly international orientation of the Hohenstein Institute, some of the business units of the International Textile Research and Services Centre have been renamed as of 1 January 2010.
The main focus of the renaming was to strengthen the umbrella brand name of "Hohenstein“.
In future, the following companies will operate under the brand name:
• Hohenstein Laboratories GmbH & Co. KG (previously: Hohenstein Research Institute Prof. Dr. Jürgen Mecheels GmbH & Co. KG) • Hohenstein Institut für Textilinnovation e.V. (Hohenstein Institute for Textile Innovation) (previously: Hohenstein Clothing Physiology Institute) • Hohenstein Academy e.V. (previously: Hohenstein Technical Academy) • Hohenstein Textile Testing Institute GmbH & Co. KG
Schloss Hohenstein in Bönnigheim has been the headquarters of the Hohenstein Institute Research and Service Centre since 1946. With the renaming of the business units, the Hohenstein Institute is paying tribute to its increasingly international orientation and focusing on the umbrella brand name of "Hohenstein".
