As an accredited testing and certification body, the “OETI - Institut fuer Oekologie, Technik und Innovation GmbH“ (OETI for short) has been successfully responding to prevailing market requirements for 55 years and, in the process, has made a name for itself worldwide. To mark its anniversary, this international centre of excellence with its origins in Austria is taking a look back at the most important milestones in its history as well as providing interesting insights into future developments.
On the occasion of our 55th birthday on 25 September 2022, we interviewed long-time and loyal OETI customers about their success stories using a special anniversary questionnaire. We will publish these interviews at regular intervals on our website and Linkedin social media account. We start with the Danish company EGE CARPETS A/S, which has been an OETI customer for over 40 years.
