Our mission

TANATEX Chemicals wants to be a global sustainable player who supports its customers with high performance textile solutions.

Our vision

We contribute to a sustainable textile industry.

A personal approach

“What’s new?” That’s often the first thing I hear when I meet up with a client. It’s a great question, as the answer differs every time. Because with a worldwide network of trendwatchers, product and application specialists, there’s always something new. We seem to have this unstoppable urge to turn trends and struggles into concepts that make textiles even better.

When I became CEO of TANATEX in 2007, this was exactly what I had in mind. I recognised the need for an international textile chemical company that offers solutions instead of mere products. Textile manufacturers and fashion brands all deal with a fast-changing industry where solely winter and summer collections no longer exist. To succeed, they must be extremely fast, live up to high standards and keep up with all kinds of customer wishes.

They don’t just need a chemicals supplier, they need a partner providing solutions. So, we work hard to be the best in class. We travel, collaborate, test, develop and test again. We combine expertise with experience and love a challenge. We build on the expertise of employees of the first hour, and personally train young talent at the TANATEX academy. It’s this enthusiasm that makes the difference, and I’ll personally see to it that we never lose this trait, no matter how much we grow.
