Artex is part of Dutch manufacturing industry and operates a large number of production processes.

Artex makes a total of more than 2,000 different end products. Diversity is the key to success. The ability to make all the different articles requires professional expertise and versatile modern machinery. By obtaining ISO 9001 certification, we have become accustomed to working according to set processes and procedures. This guarantees constant quality and a high service level.

Our extensive machinery offers a vast number of possibilities. In order to be able to satisfy the demands of today’s market, we have to be able to process fabric widths of up to as much as 3 metres.

The basic fabrics are designed and partly woven by Artex. After weaving, the fabrics are coloured and given a post-treatment depending on the required functionality of the finished article.

The fabrics are printed, dyed or coated to give them colour. Using different techniques, virtually any pattern can be printed. The Dye Shop uses a wide range of machines. Fabrics can be coated and/or dyed on tenters using different methods. After colouring, the semi-finished fabrics are given a post-treatment depending on the requirements they have to meet in finished products, for example, wrinkle-proof, dirt-repellent or flame-retardant.

Artex can also give fabrics a permanent wrinkle or plissé effects or cut them to size for vertical blinds. Before shipping, the products are checked to ensure they meet specifications agreed with the customer.

The amount of variation in the processes demands a great deal of professional expertise from our personnel. The traditional textile processes such as weaving, dyeing and printing require a specific educational background. Even the operators who work on the tenters are required to take a basic training course. Our employees receive internal and external training. See alliances.


Lean manufacturing

Lean manufacturing is a method for making targeted improvements in operating processes; it focuses on reducing waste. Only components that add value for the customer are regarded as useful. “When will I be allowed to join an improvement?” was a question asked by an operator in a performance interview.


High-quality properties

Adding value to our fabrics by using specific raw materials or special finishes is our speciality. This creates fabrics with a specific functionality or property.

Examples of these include:

Our unique Topar® coating that was developed to reflect heat from the sun. This coating also makes fabrics dust and insect proof, easy to clean and dirt-repellent.

This coating is dirt-repellent.

Some of our fabric qualities are certified to flame-retardant class B1 of DIN 4102 and/or M1 NF P-92503

Extensive technical information is available for all our fabrics.

Artex uses its own laboratory and external institutes for testing, for example, sun protection and flame-retardant properties according to European standards.

For some tests, we use external institutes in order to obtain the required certification, for example, certificates that guarantee flame-retardant properties.
