OVERVIEW

50 YEARS KTC

We can look back on half a century of development of our own exclusive production and manufacturing processes. They guarantee an advantage that only KTC can offer. The result: the KTC stamp of quality and employee satisfaction.

TRANSPARENCY

OUR DOORS ARE OPEN 365 DAYS A YEAR

Whether production, pay, or product: our claim is the same throughout. Anyone anytime should have access; our doors are always open. That applies to our plant in Heshan as well as for our products, materials and working conditions.

As a transparent textile manufacturer, our claim is to be ‘accessible to everyone’. With open doors and open ears for employees, athletes, partners & customers.

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

EMPLOYEE RETENTION

China: The number of workers not returning to a factory after Chinese New Year can commonly hit up to 50% of the workforce and even more in some cases. With the great retention rate at our factory in China, we had only 5% of our line workers or 3% of all employees not return after the new year holiday.

In accordance with the very long worker seniority of our workforce, we are proud of our high retention rate especially after the New Year Holidays, which is typically dramatic and challenging for factories. When looking at outstandingly low retention rates in both our factories we can claim that our employees know and value our company as much as we value them.

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

BUSINESS IS PEOPLE

Together with the University of Vechta and Prof. Dr. med. Nick Lin-Hi (holder of the Chair of Economics and Ethics) we created the research-based project “Business is People”.
The project aims to promote sustainability and taking responsibility in the textile chain by means of innovative approaches. How can digital technologies be used to improve labor, environmental and social standards? What does transparency really mean in the production chain? Which technologies and partner cooperations make sense?
We are continually searching with one focus in mind: and that is the people behind the products. In the production, in the shop, and at the cash register.
