are top priorities at BWF Protec
From the inspection of raw materials to the final inspection of our technical needle felts, producing stable but above all high-quality products matter a great deal to us.
Our employees are the basis of our success. What does this mean for us as BWF Group? Education as the basis for professional growth. What do we understand by this? We are committed to long-term partnerships. How do we implement this? We care for our natural conditions. How do we put this into practice? You will find the answers in our sustainability statement on the topics of employees, education, society and the environment.
In order to guarantee and verify various product attributes, in recent years we have expanded our testing capabilities. In addition to the standard values of thickness and weight per unit area, the following tests are now possible on site: Martindale abrasion test, tensile strength and tear resistance tests, bending stiffness test, air permeability test.
These tests form an integral part of product specifications as required, and are carried out diligently by our employees in the course of production.
We are certified according to ISO 9001.
In the field of environment, we are certified according to ISO 14001.
Unfortunately, waste cannot be completely avoided during production. Nevertheless, our goal is to continuously reduce whatever waste we do produce by constantly optimising our production processes. As far as possible, textile waste is recycled.
In everyday office life, we strive to handle our day-to-day business without using paper. For example, in many cases we only send quotations, order confirmations and invoices by e-mail.
BWF Protec also actively pursues energy management. We focus on minimising our energy consumption, e.g. all lighting is continuously switched to LED sources.
