ZDHC adds 12 new organisations as contributors

Oct '19
ZDHC has added twelve new organisations as contributors. These organisations will work alongside ZDHC to spread the use of safer chemistry throughout the value chain. ZDHC has also added three companies as their first “Friends of ZDHC”. These three companies – Fast Retailing, ISA-Traesko and Vaude Sport have made their interest in ZDHC’s work official.

“Having joined us as Friends, they will tap into ZDHC’s tools and other supports to promote their own safer chemical management,” ZDHC said.

Twelve new additions are Kmart Group, Bluesign Technologies, Archroma, DyStar, Huntsman Textile Effects, Kisco, Pulcra Chemicals, Rudolf Group, Tanatex Chemicals, Johnstons of Elgin, Marzotto Lab and Asia Pacific Rayon.

“Their support and expertise will be invaluable in building and refining the tools that are helping the industry to transform,” ZDHC said about the new additions.

The Kmart Group, comprising Kmart Australia, Target Australia, Anko International, KAS Group Asia and Catch Group, is a division of Wesfarmers and operates over 520 stores across Australia and New Zealand. Kmart Group sells a range of apparel and general merchandise products.

Archroma is a global colour and specialty chemicals company headquartered in Reinach near Basel, Switzerland. It has 25 production sites in over 35 countries. It delivers specialised performance and colour system solutions to meet customers’ needs in their local markets.

DyStar is a global textile dyes and chemicals supplier with a strong heritage. It has over a century of experience in product development and innovation for the textile industry. Huntsman Textile Effects is the textile industry’s leading global provider of high quality dyes, chemicals and digital inks. With operations in 90 countries and manufacturing facilities in China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Mexico and Thailand, Huntsman Textile Effects offers prompt, expert technical service worldwide.

Kisco (Kyung-In Synthetic Corporation) is a large-scale developer and manufacturer of dyes, inks, fine chemicals, materials for electronics and other functional materials. Pulcra Chemicals is a leading developer and manufacturer of innovative speciality chemicals for the fibre, textile and leather industries. The Rudolf Group is an international company group with a product range that includes textile auxiliaries for all stages of textile finishing processes.

Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) operates one of the biggest viscose-rayon mills in Asia with an installed production capacity of 240,000 tonnes per annum.

Johnstons of Elgin is one of the last few vertical mills in the UK. To this day, it still carries out all processes, from raw cashmere or fine woollen fibres right through to the finished product.

Marzotto Lab specialises in natural fibres such as cotton and linen. It also specialises in velvet and home decor. Sustainability and the environment are key issues for Marzotto Lab.
