AMIDEX is OETI’s first MADE IN GREEN customer. “MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®” is an independent textile label for highlighting consumer products and semi-finished products at all levels of the textile chain that are made from materials tested for harmful substances and that have been manufactured by using environmentally friendly processes and under safe and socially responsible working conditions.
The company “AMIDEX Produktions- & VertriebsgmbH“ has been a loyal OETI customer for more than three decades. “All our products, without exception, are OEKO-TEX® certified. Sustainability and longevity of our products are very important to us,” explains AMIDEX CEO for Production & Sales Franz Zwickl.
Franz Zwickl further: “We conducted a lot of research to find a certification or label, which would best convey our philosophy to our customers. It was of high importance to us to find a label that not only focused on environmental factors and sustainability but also social aspects. That is why we have chosen MADE IN GREEN and also as it covers many aspects, that have been our standards for decades.”
AMIDEX is a highly quality-oriented company and mainly manufactures hotel and contract bed linen for Austria, Switzerland and various Eastern-European countries.
Helene Melnitzky – OETI’s head of ecology department sees demand for MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® in all of those countries, in which end consumers put increasing pressure on manufacturers to offer them transparently produced goods. „Our opportunity is to support the industry so that they can better deal with the markets’ demands for textiles that are made from materials tested for harmful substances and that have been manufactured by using environmentally friendly processes and under safe and socially responsible working conditions“, concludes Helene Melnitzky.
