Quality

All our production plants comply with the strict regulations needed to obtain AENOR quality certifications. We have the ISO/TS 16949 quality management system, which is an essential requirement in the automotive sector. We are also certified in accordance with the UNE-ISO 9001 standard, which incorporates the design, development and production of yarns in the diverse industrial processes we offer.

The products we manufacture come with an OEKO-Tex® Standard 100 label warranty. Moreover, our commitment to the conservation and improvement of the natural environment has led to our implementing an environmental management system. Aware of the growing importance of waste recycling and the need to incorporate recycled materials into the textile chain, and in order to assess the level at which our eco product lines have a reduced impact on the environment, we have carried out a life cycle analysis of our products (LCA). In order to guarantee the traceability of our recycled material we offer a GRS certification, and a CCP certification for the recycling process. In addition, we have specific certifications covering different materials such as the SDS (Safety Data Sheet).

Our quality, safety and environmental policies are shared by all of our partners. We uphold the United Nations (SDG) sustainable development objectives and work to ensure a better future for all.

Quality control systems

From its very origin in the spinning process and right through the subsequent processes our yarn undergoes on-line checking. This ensures rigorous quality control throughout the whole production process.

All parameters are overseen daily by our laboratories so as to guarantee product regularity and avoid any deviation from initial design specifications.

Resources and installations

I+D: One of our cornerstones

New trends require new solutions. Our I+D department is staffed by highly skilled specialists and guarantees both quality products and continuous innovative contributions to the textile market.

Thanks to our pilot plants our team of experts are able to dedicate the time and resources needed to investigate and develop new solutions independently from the daily production process. The studies and trials carried out in these plants are then tested in our laboratories where the developed product is checked to make sure that it meets all initial specifications.
