CHT Group’s Business Field Textile Care succeeded in completing the business year 2018 with another sales record and a double-digit sales growth.
In an increasingly tough market P.C. Stevens, Head of BF Textile Care and his team succeeded once more in meeting the market challenges.
“We are only able to expand our position on the international textile care market if we do the following: Together with our customers we permanently aim at optimising the processes and washing methods and at making them even safer and more sustainable”, says P.C. Stevens, Head of BF Textile Care.
“Therefore, we are very proud of having set completely new standards with our patented UV-supported washing process by saving valuable resources. Most of all, the UV-supported CHT washing process enables laundries to refrain from using chlorine acids and peracids in their processes making thus working processes safer for their staff. In addition, the durability of treated textiles can be significantly increased, which is an enormous sustainability aspect”, Stevens continues.
“To us, it is important not only to have very good personal customer contacts but also to keep an ear close to the market in order to be able to apply our profound textile chemical know-how for the development of new and profitable washing processes and to realise sustainable process optimisations”, Stevens adds.
The development of new international businesses and the expansion of existing ones in 2018 also show that in the meantime CHT has established itself very well in the demanding Textile Care business. The positive developments in Brazil, France, Austria, Switzerland and Spain must be emphasized in particular. For 2019 P.C. Stevens and his team aim at expanding this worldwide successes furthermore. P.C. Stevens knows exactly how to achieve this ambitious goal. With passion and commitment the CHT team will continue to search for innovations and focus on the optimisation of existing processes.
