HeiQ und The LYCRA Company haben eine umfassende Zusammenarbeit über mehrere Technologie- und Markenplattformen hinweg vereinbart. Aufbauend auf Sondierungsgesprächen, die Anfang 2019 begannen, gaben HeiQ und die The LYCRA Company bekannt, ihre gemeinsamen Philosophien und Stärken in der Textilwissenschaft, in sozialen Netzwerken und im globalen Marketing zu nutzen, um mit ihren Innovationsplattformen einen breiten Markt zu adressieren. Die Unternehmen planen Innovationen für Verbrauchermarken in den Marktsegmenten Stretch, Thermoregulation, Frische und Nachhaltigkeit.

Die erste Innovationsplattform kommt noch in diesem Sommer auf den Markt. Sie soll den Verbrauchern eine neue Dimension von Vertrauen und Komfort bieten, indem HeiQ Frische- und antivirale Vorteile mit der Qualität und den Vorzügen von Stretch-Stoffen verbindet, die nach dem neuen Markenstandard der LYCRA® freshFX® Technologie zertifiziert sind. Die Vorbereitungen für diese Innovation laufen derzeit mit einem anfänglichen Fokus auf lokale Wertschöpfungsketten in China für den chinesischen Verbraucher. Die Markteinführung ist für die Intertextile-Messe in Shanghai Ende August vorgesehen. Der Fokus dieser Kooperationen wird darauf liegen, relevante Verbraucherbedürfnisse nach Qualität, Langlebigkeit und nachhaltiger Kleidung zu erfüllen. Stoffmuster und Prototypen werden im Spätsommer für die kommerzielle Order zur Verfügung stehen.

„Unser Ziel bei HeiQ ist es, Marken und Produzenten in der Textilindustrie in die Lage zu versetzen, mehr Komfort, Performance und Nachhaltigkeit in Textilprodukte zu bringen und gleichzeitig die Markenbekanntheit bei den Verbrauchern zu erhöhen, die am meisten von diesen Innovationen profitieren werden", sagt Carlo Centonze, Mitbegründer und CEO der HeiQ Gruppe.

„Die Kollaboration basiert auf einem starken Fundament gemeinsamer Werte und Philosophien, die unsere beiden Unternehmen teilen", so Julien Born, CEO The LYCRA Company. „Wir freuen uns darauf, die natürlichen Synergien zwischen uns zu nutzen und gemeinsam neue Lösungen für die Bekleidungsindustrie zu finden."

HeiQ provides sustainable dyeing and finishing solutions

Swiss textile innovator HeiQ partners with Twinery to significantly reduce waste in their apparel production supply chain.

Apparel manufacturing is the second largest polluting industry in the world. While there are many solutions to this problem, Bodyline has taken the lead to focus on developing a low impact supply chain by reducing energy and waste across the entire value chain and develop No Waste Apparel – Truecycled.

Two steps in this supply chain lifecycle include improving the dyeing and finishing stages. To improve the dyeing stage by using less water and energy and save CO2 during the polyester dyeing process, Truecycled has implemented HeiQ Clean Tech for more efficient and ecological processing of textiles.

“Aiming to improve the everyday products of textiles by making them more functional, comfortable and sustainable, HeiQ is proud to partner with Bodyline on their Truecycled project”, says Carlo Centonze, Chief Executive Officer at HeiQ.
