The SAERTEX success story began with a good idea in 1982: The concept of producing technical reinforcing materials in the form of stitch-bonded fabrics – so-called non-crimp fabrics (NCF), instead of conventional textiles, and leveraging existing specialist knowledge to develop completely new products. Although corporate expansion has made it necessary in the meantime to construct and occupy new buildings around the world – developing SAERTEX as a global player – much of the old pioneering spirit still remains today. This is particularly evident in our determination to constantly seek new directions and display the courage to pursue them.
