We stand with UKRAINE

War in the middle of Europe: A few weeks ago absolutely unimaginable and unrealistic. In the meantime, a horrible fact.

The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine has shaken up Europe and especially the EU. Now it is obvious: Europe must become independent - from energy to defence to the economy: IT IS ABOUT EUROPE, FREEDOM AND PEACE.

Always ready to hand: The high-visibility vest

High-visibility waistcoats manufactured according to EN ISO 20471 are a fixed component of a uniform. It is strictly compulsory to wear them on almost all areas of airports and not only for personal safety. Many airports even expect the airline logo to be printed on the back and not just the neutral designation CREW.

We offer both: We supply our KORNTEX high-visibility waistcoats with the neutral CREW imprint or with a logo. Due to our technical equipment, we can print the high-visibility waistcoats at short notice.

The environmental impact of the uniform

The global textile industry is one of the worst polluters, because of the chemicals used in fabric production. Malicious tongues even claim it is the second biggest ever, right behind aviation!
Today's big challenge, which must be met in the shortest timespan possible: Uniform fabrics must become recyclable! The tricky part is: Due to durability requirements, the materials currently available are predominantly blended fabrics containing polyester, which cannot be separated in a recycling process. However, pure recycled material is required for reuse.

With this, however, we are already protecting the environment: Less water consumption through intelligent production, cleaning and reprocessing of waste water and local production. Which consequently means much shorter transport routes and fewer emissions. Logically, the price for this is much higher and no longer compatible with the previous procurement methods.

More security - more speed

When CHGR analyzed our already above-average powerful IT system, we found out that there is still room for improvement when it comes to our backup power supply and that our fiber optics internet connection can be taken to the next (broader) level.

With our local host of fiber optics network VONET we found a interesting and flexible partner who enables us to react ideal on future requirements. The upload speed of our webserver has been adapted for 2,5 on the short run.

And in case of emergency - e.g. a black out, our new and bigger USV keeps the system 3 times longer alive than up to now. After that thre will be made a controlled shut down. But this should only be necessary when we do our regular trials ...

Logistics: Chaos vs. keeping order

Chaos-Logistics is explained by well working commissioning streams even if a part of hard- or software fails. The same article or SKU will be storaged on different storage areas.
Which definitly makes sense in businesses like aircraft construction, automobile industry or other technical fields. But in case of uniform logistcs in apparel managementt?

We are convinced that hanging uniform parts (especially HAKA and DOB) need to be storaged, picked and packed in a traditional and analogue way. In case of accessoires that would be more imaginable. Uniforms are a highly emotional topic. In the end the ladies and gentlemen who wear our uniforms should not only be able to work comfortably - they should also feel and look great in it. And exactly that demand needs to start right in stock: The uniform should be treated with proper estimation. The uniforms need to be neaty and professionally storaged and they should be picked & packed from employees with love for details.

SKYALPS starts with 2 Dash 8-Q400

The last years it was quiet at Bolzano Airport (BZO). Now, because of the Dash 8-Q400 (Q stands for quiet!) used by SKYALPS, it does not get really much louder, but something is moving again!

As "Ambassadors of the Alps" flights to Rome-Fiumicino (FCO), Berlin (BER), Dusseldorf (DUS) Ibiza (IBZ), Olbia (OLB) and Parma (PMF) are offered.

We are pleased that the ambassadors of the Alps complete their service with professional outfits for cockpit and cabin crews from OBERHOFER. We wish much success!

THANK YOU very much!

The impact of the COVID crisis on aviation was massive and in some cases it still is. We would like to thank our customers who have remained loyal to us or joined us during this difficult time.

There are first silver linings on the horizon and fortunately our customers have weathered the crisis quite well. Our special thanks go to the many online customers, the customers in Dubai, in Iceland, on Malta and last but not least in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
