Oeko-Tex Certification completed
Green Milestones in the Sky: We are excited to announce that our uniforms now proudly bear the esteemed Oeko-Tex-Certification (certficate VN020 223919).
This significant recognition underscores our commitment to sustainability and well-being. The uniforms are crafted from top-quality materials that have undergone rigorous testing for harmful substances and ecological compatibility. This initiative reflects our ongoing endeavor to not only provide top-notch services but also to ensure that our work attire adheres to the highest ecological standards.
By embracing eco-friendly materials, we are not only contributing to the well-being of the crews but also playing our part in a more sustainable future within the aviation industry.
SMETA 4 Pillar Audit
In a SMETA-4-pillar audit, social responsibility with special attention to labour standards and health, the safety of work processes, environmental management and the ecological footprint as well as the ethical principles in business activities are analysed and subjected to critical assessment.
Not only due to the fact that we use only OEKO-TEX-100 certified materials, manufacture in the EU and meet very high standards anyway, the audit confirmed that we fulfil all requirements in all 4 pillars of SMETA.
50 sycamore trees planted
Originally intended as a noise barrier, this forest plot has taken on a completely different meaning in times of climate change: It improves our ecological footprint!
To further support this, 50 young sycamore maple trees were planted. Their advantage: they drive their roots deep into the earth and thus also reach deeper groundwater layers.

DHL has landed
The requirements of the client DPDHL (Deutsche Post DHL) are demanding, very demanding. Therefore we are even more pleased, that we were able to convince them with our uniforms and Uniform Management System.
As high-end workwear, DHL Air Austria's new uniforms are modern, professional and functional. It was very important that the materials used are both sustainable and environmentally friendly, but also durable and comfortable to wear. All the fabrics used are ÖKO-Tex 100 certified.
With Josef HÖLZL we have gained an employee and advisor who can combine the best of our two worlds - flying and clothing. He wore and appreciated our uniforms for so many years - first as pilot in executive aviation and later as well as an air ambulance pilot. So we are very proud that from now on, he will provides his experience and knowledge to our customers.
His competence is also based on the fact that, as a Hohenstein graduate, he worked in the textile industry for many years, went through all areas of this industry at home and abroad and was finally able to develop into an absolute trouser specialist.
On the one hand, Josef Hölzl will be available to our customers - especially in Germany - as a contact person. On the other hand, he will further develop our uniform trousers as a consultant with innovative ideas.
You can find his contact details here.
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.
