As a technology-driven family business, Rökona has been developing trendsetting technical textiles for every conceivable field of application for more than 60 years. With almost 260 employees at two locations in Germany, we implement a broad base of production processes – from the knitwear factory to the dyeworks, to finishing and laminating. Together with our Hungarian sister company, we represent the entire value chain, from cutting all the way to the packaged product. A sales office and two joint ventures in China enable us to cover the Asian market smoothly. We would be delighted to develop appropriate solutions for your projects together with you.
The functionalization of technical textiles is becoming increasingly important. By using spacer connecting threads, which keep two fabric surfaces at a defined distance from one another, textiles can be extended to include a 3rd dimension. These so-called spacer fabrics offer great freedom in terms of design and functional effects, in the Hometech, Clothtech, Medtech and Mobiltech sectors. Spacer fabrics are also becoming increasingly important in terms of sustainability. They replace foam materials, enabling composite structures to be produced in their purest form, with recycled starting materials.
