Made in Germany

Transparency creates trust

The consumer demands transparency about where his purchased products have been produced. The textile industry is not adequately fulfilling this demand. For this reason we have been a member of the initiative “Ja-zu-Deutschland” (“Yes-to-Germany”) for several years now. 

We have filed for a seal ID and received it. Now we can give our customers the opportunity to mark their products and create production transparency for the final consumers. 

We can make this seal ID including logo available to our customers who produce elastic knit goods in Germany.

Facts:

    • Carl Meiser GmbH&Co.KG produces solely in Germany
    • The seal can only be given to tubular knit goods that have been produced, finished and processed in Germany.
    • The seal ID is 627

 

        We are happy to discuss the possible implementation of your products’ labeling.

Resource Management

Sustainable use of resources is the basis of our company’s internal resource management system.

Sustainability means, for us, the prudent application of energy and raw materials. At all points of added value, this guideline is consistently integrated into product planning.

We especially focus on the following:

  1. No, or little, pollution through emissions (exhaust, wastewater, waste air)
  2. Chemicals (Threshold Limit Value/TLV)
  3. Skin compatibility

 

The most important input factors are compiled in an environmental auditing and evaluated on a monthly basis.

Based on this environmental analysis we can take decisions to improve the environmental compatibility of our production.

Meiser places emphasis on the following measurements for environmental protection:

  • Reduction of energy demand
  • Reduction of water demand
  • Processing of wastewater to transfer back to the public sewage plants
  • Reduction of organic and inorganic pollution
  • Processing of waste air
  • Usage, safety, storage and transport of chemicals
  • Waste and recycling of waste materials

Industrial washing samples

Compiling results of washing samples taken during production is an important indicator of high quality.

One of the most important quality characteristics for the end consumer is the textile’s percentage of shrinkage after its first wash. Previously, shrinkage values could only be slightly influenced during production. However, today it’s desirable to design fabrics as resistant to shrinkage as possible during processing.

Our modern dryer equipment with very effective Krumpf-Calenders supports this endeavor even further. Through this process, we can achieve a high wash resistance combined with only a small percentage of shrinkage without any chemical additives. 

Our internal goal is the production of fabrics with shrinkage values below 5%. Washing samples constantly control these values. 

The following characteristics crucially influence the test results of the washing samples:

  • Loading of wash machine and dryer
  • Detergent used
  • Type of equipment
  • Type of identification marking
  • Type of measurement

To accomplish standardized values, which can be reproduced by our customers, we wash according to the following standardized method:

Solar power station

WE COUNT ON RENEWABLE ENERGY.

Bothe areas of operation of the company Carl Meiser GmbH&Co.KG - Meiser Textile Finishing and nopma Technical Textiles - run very energy intensively and need permanent steam heat supply. Today, the steam heat is 100% obtained from fossil fuel.

Together with company Smirro GmbH, company Carl Meiser works against this dependence by installing a first test plant of ca. 100 m² solar collectors on the company roof.

The very special about this project is that the collectors developped by Smirro are able to produce local solar process heat up to 240°C, which will 100% be used in the production

This pilot scheme is supposed to test and demonstrate what renewable energy is able to accomplish.

REACH

The EU Chemical Ordinance REACH has been in effect since July 1st, 2007. As an EU ordinance, REACH is valid in all member countries is a requirement to be implemented.

What is REACH (R Registration, E Evaluation, A Authorization & Restriction, CH of Chemicals)?

The REACH system is based on the principle that the industry needs to take individual responsibility. According to the principle “no data, no market” only chemical agents that have been registered, evaluated and approved can be brought into the markets of member countries. The evaluation of chemical agents is supported through the compilation of so-called exposition-scenarios.

If a chemical agents falls into the area of application of REACH it must have a registration number from ECHA. ECHA is the responsible agency within the European Union, headquartered in Helsinki.

Timeline of REACH:

  • 01 June 2007: REACH becomes effective
  • 01 June 2008: Beginning of pre-registration
  • 29 October 2008: Publication of the “list of candidates 1”
  • 01 December 2008: End of pre-registration
  • 01 January 2009: Publication of pre-registered agents
  • 01 June 2009: ECHA suggests agents for appendix XIV
  • 01 December 2010: End of registration deadline for agents > 1000 t/a
  • 01 June 2013: End of registration deadline for agents > 100 t/a
  • 01 June 2018: End of registration deadline for agents > 1 t/a

Continuous Improvement Process

CIP REFERS TO AN INTERNAL ATTITUDE OF ALL PROCESS STEAKHOLDER; THIS PHILOSOPHY ACHIEVES CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT WITH LONG-LASTING EFFECTS.

CIP is being implemented in all processes of our company. Our focal points are:

Quality of products

Quality of processes

Quality of service

Small improvements are constantly developed from continuous teamwork and are implemented immediately. Our goal to achieve effective benefits for our customers determines our actions and secures the development of more efficient and lean structures.

To increase customer benefit and to avoid problems in the long run each improvement has to be integrated into the daily work routine.

PA TESTKIT Ringel

We have developed the Meiser PA TESTKIT so our customers are able to detect curl defects in the yarn of polyamide qualities at an early stage.

The PA TESTKIT allows for simple dyeing of a textile sample in the knitting mill. The dyeing process is set up so that its simple to execute and can be done parallel to the knitting process. The PA TESTKIT includes everything that you will need.

We offer the PA TESTKIT for a nominal fee of 50 EUR. Please contact us if you have any questions about the PA TESTKIT.

Advantages:

  • Early detection in the knitting mill
  • Not very time-intensive
  • Low cost
  • Possible high savings due to early flaw detection
