A long history under one roof

Our History

Engtex has a long history of textile production that started in the 1930:s.

Since then we have gone through being a normal textile producer to one of the market-leading manufacturer of warp-knitted technical textiles in Europe. Our worldwide reputation about our high-quality technical textiles spans over several different market sectors and enable us to deliver technical textiles globally.

This we can do because of our most valuable asset; our employees. They have over the decades collected know-how and experience and shared it with next coming generations. We believe in treating all people fair and are always open for new ideas. No matter if it’s an employee, supplier or a customer. This is the Engtex way….
