In the manufacturing process TenCate Protective Fabrics devotes specific attention to the responsible handling of raw materials, reduction of waste and rejects and recycling. Quality assurance is and will remain the guiding principle. That starts with product design and ongoing product development. TenCate aims to impact the environment as little as possible.

This principle is part of the code of conduct for employees. TenCate gives the utmost priority to a safe working environment worldwide, in order to prevent industrial accidents and protect the operating and business environment.

That ensures that the production process and the chain remain controllable.
