What Lauma is now

Position and specialization
European textile exporters are the second-largest textile exporters (24%) after China.

This is a big niche in textiles, and LAUMA cannot let its customers down. Therefore, we actively invest in research and development of new technologies, improving our product range.

Our specialization is medical and technical textiles. The final product is comfortable underwear, masks, elastic bandages, and corsets for pregnant women. LAUMA products are used by millions of consumers all over the world. And we are proud of it.
Cleaner production
A survey of the European consumer market showed that 57% are willing to give up products that are harmful to the environment. And 81% are specifically looking only for products that meet their consumer values.

We are keeping up with the trend and are saying YES to green manufacturing. To do this, LAUMA has focused on cost and quality of materials to make products affordable to the customer.

The factories and laboratories have implemented Oeko-tex, REACH, and ISO certifications for eco-products. The company is not only closer to the consumer, but also more competitive in the textile market.

Also, LAUMA plans to install 26,315 solar panels to shift all production to renewable energy and reduce energy costs.
Prospects for growth
Lauma Fabrics is not only the largest textile factory in Europe but also a spin-off laboratory.

The business strategy makes it possible to create independent companies by selling or distributing new shares in an existing business or a division of the parent company. And the value of spin-off companies as independent businesses is greater than parts of a large business.
A strong team
Behind every meter of thread, conveyor belt, or negotiating room there are people. LAUMA is proud of its team, which has proven decades of dedication to the good cause of serving the consumer.

Our management team has extensive experience in managing corporations and building value enterprises. Most importantly, they know what the customer is demanding now and have successfully forecasted a future plan for LAUMA. And implement it together with the team.
Growth strategy
LAUMA's development concept is to offer individual solutions to the customer. For this purpose, we have opened an intelligent laboratory where all know-how in textile production is considered. And we are gradually shifting to renewable biomaterials.

The strategy will enable Lauma to become a plug-and-play platform, developing and consolidating the medical textile market independently. Thus, scaling the value and value of the holding companies.

We ship to 200 companies in 20 different countries

We are constantly developing and expanding
our cooperation boundaries.
