At the beginning was the vision: TEXPORT company founder Otmar Schneider wanted to develop high-tech protective clothing that could counter extreme situations and differ from other clothing manufacturers with regards to total functionality and practical effectiveness. This is what he managed to do: Within just a few years, our dynamic company TEXPORT grew to approx 50 employees in Salzburg, plus around 200 seamstresses and sewers in our own factory in Macedonia, selling our products developed in-house across Europe through our own Sales department and a widespread retailer network. We are the market leader in Austria and we have positioned ourselves as leaders in the German market as a supplier for Firewear, Workwear and Public authority wear.
Our textiles protect lives. This is why we place absolute value on the best raw materials and perfect processing. Legal regulations are of course complied with without compromise. Our workwear fits perfectly! This is because the cuts are matched entirely to customer requests and optimised for their requirements. Our field service will be happy to advise you on site. Because our high product quality goes hand in hand with excellent services.
Our core business is divided into three specialist areas: Firewear, Workwear and Public authority wear. In each area, our values are based on top quality and working together with partners in the materials industry on the continuous optimisation of all textiles.

Another innovation: Padded and ergonomically formed knee pads, fire-retardant and offering permanent protection against bruising.
Following intensive research into cut and material structure in Salzburg and successful practical tests on the sample clothing, mass production begins in Macedonia. All materials are ordered and checked in Salzburg and then transported to Macedonia for this purpose. Trained employees sew the textiles in complex and precise steps by hand. Checks are implemented during production between individual stages. Each article of clothing is subject to 100% quality inspection before the clothing leaves the factory in Macedonia. Random sampling also takes place at the Salzburg main factory so that only first class goods are sent to the customer.
Our concept of the symbiosis between protection, comfort and function is successful. This is why we are proud of our numerous customers in our different business units.
