The Fritsch Färberei GmbH was founded by the father of the current managing director in 1952. At that time, it was purely a textile finishing company. In 1976, the current managing director, Rudolf Fritsch, took over the firm and promoted yarn trading and dyeing the company’s own yarns. Presently, the ratio of own yarn production and commissioned finishing is about 80:20 per cent. The yarns are supplied to companies in Austria, Germany, France, England, Italy and Switzerland.
Our company undergoes regular inspections and certification procedures, including GOTS and ÖKO TEX ® Standard 100. Consequently, we have committed ourselves to stringent quality criteria. With our work, we aim to meet the highest standards – this distinguishes our company and our unique products.
