Inspections and audits for an optimal supplier-customer relationship.

Components, methods, installations, processes or systems: the textile supply chain is long and complicated - and thus also very prone to error. With an on-site inspection, you can identify errors in the production process at an early stage and avoid consequent costs.

Hohenstein offers a variety of inspection modules that help eliminate processing errors across all production phases. This ensures a consistently high material and product quality.

Even when it comes to compliance with laws on occupational safety and environmental protection, you are well advised with our auditors. You have the option of having your company tested for specific requirements by means of product facility audits in order to further differentiate and position yourself on the market - for example with certification according to STeP by OEKO-TEX® for environmentally friendly and socially responsible textile production or according to the RAL Mark 992 for Professional Textile Services.
