Schoeller Opens Sales Office In Turkey
Schoeller Textil AG, Switzerland, recently opened a new sales office in the International Textile Center near Istanbul, Turkey. Schoeller Turkey Ltd., under the leadership of newly appointed CEO Ahmet Sozer, will focus on representing Schoeller's fabric collection. Special emphasis will be placed upon the outdoor, sports, sportswear and casual apparel sectors. The office also will work to promote Schoellers finishing capabilities, such as 3XDRY® which, when applied to garments, keeps the wearer cool and comfortable by providing a breathable, soil-resistant and water-repellent barrier on the outer face of the fabric, while transporting perspiration from the inside of the fabric to evaporate on the outer face.
"In terms of clothing exports, Turkey is in third place worldwide behind China and Italy, and intends to continue growing," said Hans-Jurgen Hubner, CEO, Schoeller Textil. "This is why we want to be closer to the source of this steady flow of goods. Schoeller Turkey should be able to grow in step with the ambitious objectives of the country itself."
