Since taking over in the 3rd generation in 1995, Prof. Stefan Mecheels has shown Hohenstein to the forefront of microfiber analysis, consistently developed its created standards for comfort and compression testing and worked to reduce the industry’s ecological impact. The testing laboratory in Hong Kong/China, which has been in operation since 2011, and the Hohenstein textile testing laboratories in Bangladesh and India, which were opened in 2018, ensure even greater market proximity.
Today, Hohenstein specializes in the testing, certification and research of all kinds of textile-related products. With a total of more than 1,000 employees at its headquarters in Bönnigheim and in more than 40 branches, contact offices and laboratories worldwide, the company faces the current challenges of the global industry. These include sustainability, digitalization of processes in the development of apparel and also the development, for example, a quality label for Tested Community Masks.
