AEC Narrow Fabrics, based in Asheboro, North Carolina, has earned Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification for products manufactured at its facilities in El Salvador and Honduras.
AEC manufactures a broad assortment of knitted and woven narrow fabrics for apparel, home textiles, medical, automotive, marine and commercial applications.
“The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is an important element of our overall quality assurance and product safety programs,” said AEC President Charles Adams. “This voluntary certification is recognized and respected by our customers around the world, especially by those who are Oeko-Tex certified themselves.”
“Our customers appreciate us for our quality, service and innovation,” Adams added. “Now with Oeko-Tex certification, we’re giving them another reassurance.”
Oeko-Tex certification allows manufacturers to take credit for their suppliers’ certifications when applying for certification for their own products. Obtaining certification indicates that tested products are free of concerning chemicals, including residual pesticides, carcinogenic dyestuffs, phthalates, heavy metals and formaldehyde.
