CONCORDIA TEXTILE is specialized in the production of flame resistant, functional and safety clothing. The acquired "FUCHSHUBER TECHNO-TEX" which is now intergrated in the company of CONCORDIA TEXTILE will continue in future to be an independent part with the administration in Lichtenstein and production in Balingen.

A very good synergy, as we mean here.

Glasstec 2016

At glastec 2016, the world's largest trade fair for glass, we were able to observe a lively interest from the glass-producing and glass-processing industry.

The safety officers from more than 20 countries were enthusiastic about the innovation and competence of FUCHSHUBER TECHNO-TEX GmbH. Especially in the segment of the cut resistant protective clothing.

Especially the wearing comfort and the low weight combined with the maximum protection of the models of the exclusive CUTEX knitted fabric from FUCHSHUBER TECHNO-TEX GmbH sparked enthusiasm. Especially because of the "portable and comfortable" solution to the problem of cutting injuries in the entire glass industry.

Our material is, of course, tested by independent test institutes and complies with the very high requirements of standards EN 388 and EN ISO 13977.

We look forward to hearing from you!
