There has been a considerable change in the nature of fibres produced for the world market. In the past 20 years, the march of high-tech fibres has continued, and this segment within the textile industry has experienced continuous growth. High-tech fabrics can be found in the automotive, furniture and medical industries, amongst others. Moreover, technical fibres are equally applied in sensitive environments where protection even under extreme conditions has top priority. In the past six decades, one name in particular has stood out when it comes to protective and speciality fabrics for different applications. Theodolf Fritsche GmbH & Co. from the well-known textile region in Upper Franconia has become a market leader in the production of high-tech fabrics for protective clothing.
