„ My philosophy is quite simple: I try to achieve the best possible whilst still remaining true to my line. “

Otmar Schneider Founder and Managing Director of TEXPORT GmbH

A vision precedes every mission

For TEXPORT®, it all began with a vision: Company founder Otmar Schneider had the idea of developing high tech protective clothing, rugged enough to cope with extreme situations yet dedicated to the principles of absolute functionality and practicality.

TEXPORT® grew to 60 employees in Salzburg plus roughly 380 seamsters in Macedonia and Bulgaria. Today our sales team markets throughout Europe the products we develop and manufacture. TEXPORT® leads the market in Austria, is the dominant force in the relevant German manufacturing sector and continues to grow, as evidenced in the contracts to outfit the fire departments in Madrid or Rio de Janeiro.

Premium Quality for Absolute Safety

We take our responsibility towards customers very seriously indeed and, by continuously optimising our products, remain ahead of field in terms of safety, functionality and quality.

Furthermore, the quality of all raw materials is monitored to ensure compliance with the latest directives. Our highly experienced development department designs clothing to suit individual customers, assuring the best protection, comfort and functionality.

We also mantain a continuous testing system for materials and workmanship, helping us improve processing methods and materials wherever we can.

Partnerships & Quality Programs

Cooperation with well-known material suppliers guarantees the high quality of TEXPORT protective clothing. We have long-term license partnerships and quality programs* for this purpose.

*The standards required on the basis of these quality programs lie ABOVE the requirements of European standards for protective clothing. This allows the end user to recognise which clothing articles are produced according to particularly demanding criteria. As a member of the Nomex quality partner program and the PBI quality program, TEXPORT meets those high standards.
