Fashion, Apparel
& Textile

Innovation and Sustainability are driving force in a global market with reduced seasonality and consumer-hunger for Individualisation. Promotional apparel and omni-channel activities complement market differentiation and by engaging with consumers holistically. Innovative and sustainable garments together with eco-friendly designs are at the forefront to attract consumer interest with the desired brand loyalty.

Sustainability starts with Innovation and Design, right at the beginning of new product development and garment manufacturing. Supply Chains are under continuous scrutiny to ensure availability of sustainable garments at low-volumes and shortest time-to-market cross-geographically.

Garment manufacturing-footprints are being re-evaluated with specialized and contingent micro-factories as a strategic result for fast market access. Consumer individualism and fashion trends trigger within the garment manufacturing world investments in new technologies such as knit and digital printing. Circular Supply Chain development and implementation, aiming to reduce waste stand at highest priority in the fashion industry.

With our operational senior management expertise in both markets, apparel, and industrial printing we equally understand market dynamics, clients and talents for cross-delivering talent capabilities enhancing both markets mutually and purposefully.


Industrial Printing is complementing the Fashion, Apparel and Textile industry innovatively and effectively with transferable talents adding value to both markets interactively. Sharing and further developing know-how and knowledge across both segments enhances the common denominator for Innovation and Sustainability to start with.

Customisation of packaging is a vital part of consumer communication and information. Detailed product information is driven by consumer behaviour and legal requirements. Consumers, are keen to get as much as possible of information about the products they purchase.

Innovative and cost-effective quality printing in wide and narrow web by applying digital, offset, flexographic and gravure printing technologies are paramount for the global Packaging Market. To ensure viable and sustainable product development throughout the entire supply chain right at the beginning, consumables such as inks, coatings, printing plates together with the substrates paper & board, corrugated, films and foils and many others are as important.
