A partner to meet the highest demands
The textile industry is largely dependent on innovations in the area of textile finishing.
Regular new developments in processes and ideas enable many textile companies to meet the needs of the markets and thus realise the wishes and demands of their customers. The Spanish company Pascual y Bernabeu S.A. specialises in the innovative textile finishing and dying of fabrics made of cotton, artificial fibres and wool, as well as their mixes. The corporate philosophy of the company focusses on sustainable and environmentally friendly production processes as well as socially responsible framework conditions for all employees. This specific commitment is underpinned by the fact that Pascual y Bernabeu was one of the first textile companies in the world to successfully meet the requirements of the Step by Oeko-Tex certification system.
The textile company, which is located in Cocentaina in the province of Alicante and which has a total of 72 employees, has become a specialist in finishing processes for high-quality fabrics made of cotton, artificial fibres and wool, and also their mixes. It is primarily well-known furniture manufacturers and interior designers who choose the first-class material collections with evocative product names such as Mystic, Linova, Caprice, Velonia and Enoa. The customer can choose from a broad spectrum of different material qualities in a wide selection of colours and attractive designs. Furthermore, special finishing processes meet all requirements for modern decoration, curtains and upholstery fabrics such as non-iron or non-crease as well as additional characteristics such as a water-, stain- or fire-resistant finish.
Founded in 1972, Pascual y Bernabeu has vast experience in the manufacture of high quality materials and has become one of the leading suppliers for European furniture manufacturers. "High quality products and stylish designs for a varied range of uses are what makes us stand out", emphasised Rafael Pascual, General Manager, who added: "Our material collections are impressive because of their versatility." The total production capacity of the company is around 7.2 million metres of fabric per year with a standard working width of 140 to 300 cm.
In addition to the first-class product quality, a strong customer focus also plays a key role in the economic success of Pascual y Bernabeu. "The market for the textile industry is dependent on innovations and improving quality standards," said Miguel Amorós, technical manager, "Regular new developments in processes and ideas enable us to meet the individual requirements of the customers in an efficient and flexible way and to handle the needs of the market at any time." On this basis, the company's internal Research and Development department constantly works on new solutions and creations for customers as well as innovative process designs. In doing this, the concept of sustainability also plays a key role in the company. "We focus strongly on sustainability and environmental protection with the careful use of resources that is far in excess of the statutory required limits" emphasised Miguel Amorós. In November 2013, Pascual y Bernabeu became the first company in Spain to be awarded the Step by Oeko-Tex certificate for its Sustainable Textile Production.
