Setcore Spinning Achieves Oeko-Tex Standard 100

Egypt-based Setcore Spinning S.A.E. has achieved the Oeko-Tex Standard 1000 for compliance with environmentally friendly criteria in the workplace. The company is the first manufacturer outside Europe to fulfill the requirements outlined in the standard.

Standard 1000 criteria include the use of environmentally friendly dyestuffs, chemicals, auxiliaries and technologies; conservation of water and energy; environmentally friendly wastewater treatment; and reduced emissions and production waste. The standard also specifies operating conditions such as noise levels, safety and dust; and prohibits the use of child labor.

Setcore Spinning operates two facilities with a total of 212 employees and 28,000 spindles, and produces combed Egyptian cotton yarn ranging from Ne 20 to Ne 100. Four teams of employees work in shifts that allow the company to operate around the clock, 365 days a year. The company's products also have been evaluated by Oeko-Tex and have achieved Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for skin-friendly products.
