For more than 150 years, AMANN has been co-determining the future of sewing and embroidery threads with pioneering product developments. Whether in the world of fashion, leather processing, or in the broad range of technical applications (from occupational protection to filter and clean room technologies, to the innovative area of the automotive industry), AMANN is always searching for perfect solutions both for all application areas and with regard to the requirements of the market and the customer, all over the world.
This also applies for AMANN Mettler where further development, innovation and entrepreneurial vision play a pivotal role out of tradition. A small embroidery firm has become an internationally leading manufacturer of quality sewing threads which today as an established brand uses the expertise of AMANN for a successful future. Threads, colour and imagination are developed with the help of permanent quality checks as well as state-of-the-art technologies and production processes which opt solely for environmentally friendly raw materials and materials.
However, the other savings are also significant:
At its largest production site, AMANN also sets a very special ecological sign: 27% of electricity requirements are acquired here from the company's own hydro plant – a corresponding quantity of fossil fuels is saved. Overall, AMANN was able to reduce the overall consumption of primary energy in the most important production sites by around 20% over the last 6 years. The use of gas also resulted in a substantial increase in the degree of effectiveness of the boilers from 65% to 90% and a substantial reduction in emissions. This is one reason why AMANN has already been certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001 for outstanding environmental management for many years.
