Aiming for quality with each fiber

Clean, pure, laboratory tested.

When it comes to quality, you are in good hands at HOK. No delivery bypasses our headquarters. Each batch is tested in our warehouse laboratory or by specialist external laboratories. In this way we guarantee problem-free processing and contribute significantly to the quality of the end product. We have committed ourselves to high standards of ecology and working conditions. For polyester fibres we check according to REACH conformity.
