MaxTex launches with sharpened profile and clear messages

(lifePR) (Frankfurt am Main, ) The MaxTex association is regarded by the general public and many insiders as a very successful and strong network of companies and organizations from the entire textile supply chain. In order to make the central themes of corporate responsibility and sustainability even more apparent than in the past, the members adopted various measures a few weeks ago to sharpen the profile of the association and to strengthen its competencies both internally and externally.

The external sign of this is a cautious but clearly recognisable further development of the MaxTex logo, which continues to be marked by a clear lettering, but is also supplemented by a symbol that is intended to make MaxTex's global supply chain and thus also its increasingly international orientation clear. Another message is called "network for sustainable textiles", which emphasizes the importance of this network for textile innovations and the further development of sustainable solutions. MaxTex wants to set new standards in the textile industry by means of target-oriented and trusting cooperation, to make sustainable textiles as a new standard and to create generations and ranges of textiles geared to sustainability.

Modifications to the statutes for more transparency and basis for further expertise

Various amendments to the Statutes were quite extensive. In the future, no difference will be made between ordinary members or supporting members. This means equal consideration of interests, equal voting rights and transparent structures for companies in the supply chain as well as for textile service providers, for example. In order to expand the expertise, it was decided to appoint an advisory board, which will act as a "think tank" for the Executive Board and its members, providing impetus and acting as an advisory body. The members of the advisory board are appointed by the MaxTex board of directors. Criteria include competence, vision and innovation.

MaxTex starts 2018 project "Capacity Building" together with the Hessnatur Foundation

In 2018, MaxTex and the Hessnatur Foundation will launch a two-stage training model with classical training courses, guided technical discussions and workshops. In a first step, the project aims to familiarize employees of the member companies intensively with all facets of sustainable textile industry and to bring them up to date with the latest findings. Ecological, social and economic factors are equally in focus. In a second stage, the training program is also offered externally.

The target groups will be interested companies from the supply chain as well as important end users such as hotels, restaurants, hospitals and nursing homes and their branch representatives. MaxTex regards the development of sustainability competence as one of the decisive factors for the future success of all involved actors.

MaxTex communication in English language in the future

In line with MaxTex's increasing european and in part international orientation, the Management Board and members have decided to additionally publish external communication in print and online areas in English as well. MaxTex Vice President Diederik Janssen:"This is an important step and a clear sign that we want to see our tasks and our target groups in a global context and to send our message to all stakeholders.
