Innovation meets tradition - combining the best of both worlds

In addition to exclusive consulting services, we offer innovative products made by companies with a long tradition. After all, quality is key for producing different kinds of yarns.

You need innovative ideas and want to accelerate your internal projects? Then you have come to the right place!

Whether projects or innovations in the textile sector, the speed of implementation is crucial for all processes. In addition to having a good idea, speed is key to operating successfully in a competitive global environment which is increasingly challenging for companies today. The dynamic development of both innovations and internal projects is often hampered by limited staff capacity, especially in small- and medium-sized businesses. The key challenge is to find new contemporary ways to overcome these barriers and accelerate projects and development activities.   

Join up with Next Textile GmbH to successfully master this challenge and benefit from our project and innovation support both on a national and international level.

Thema 2 revolution consisted in applying electronics where it could bring essential changes to offer economic, practical and measurable profits. Ideas, therefore, are the starting point, but they must actually result in a concrete application. That is why, in everything we offer as a company, from advice to management, from control to finished product, the spirit of cooperation is not an option, as far as we are concerned: this is a principle that we cannot give up and that compels us to work in close contact with our customer’s technical services. Thus a constant revolution becomes a continuous advance in methods and in know-how, both for us and for our Clients.
