APF participated in the latest edition of “Techtextil” fair in Frankfurt from 09th May 2017 to 12th May 2017.
Techtextil is a leading international trade fair for Technical Textiles and Non-wovens. Techtextil presented the complete spectrum of technical textiles and non-wovens for all areas of application, making it one of the most relevant user-fairs for textile innovations. Techtextil is unrivalled thanks to the broad spectrum of textile materials and technologies to be seen.
APF show-cased its recently developed innovative technical products (both fibres and filament yarns) for usages in Automotive, Performance, Protective, Furnishings, Hygiene and Fashion segments by corroborating the link between technology and materials for varied applications.
APF gave an impressive demonstration of its innovativeness and preparedness to meet tomorrow’s challenges. The fair also provided APF a certain platform to interact with suppliers, designers, fabric & garment manufacturers, technologists and developers and facilitated a conduit to identify a broad thematic choice and the opportunity for an inter-disciplinary exchange of ideas and opinions in the fields of automotive textiles, performance textiles, protective clothing, home-textiles, hygiene textiles, leisure wear and fashion wear.
APF has started the “Clean Factory / Clean Product” initiative back in 2008 with aim to replace hazardous chemicals used, with harmless alternatives throughout the entire production process.
This “Detox campaign” of APF has reached to a new high during October 2018 whereby all APF’s products passed Appendix 6 of Oeko Tex Standard – 100 which involves tightening of the limit values of harmful chemicals as compared to requirement under "Appendix 4 of Oeko Tex Standard 100" and therefore meeting all Human - Ecological requirements for our products.
Improving employee safety, reducing workplace risks and creating a better and safer working conditions have always been a priority for APF. As a continuous endeavour to achieve these goals, recently APF has been accredited with ISO 45001-2018 certification by SGS
APF remains committed for “Responsible sustainable and environmentally sound production / products”.
The spectrum of visitors to APF’s stall was extremely broad and varied. The fair provided a definitive platform for APF to interact with new and existing customers and an opportunity to chart a more vibrant course to build and sustain lasting winning relationships.
