Increasing sustainable rental linen for the hotel industry in Austria

Servitex GmbH – a German association of medium-sized service providers of rental linen and textile care in the hotel industry – has announced its intention to put more focus on ecological textiles in Austria. The association currently consists of seven owner-managed laundries with a total of 14 production facilities.

As part of an expanded cooperation with Austria and Switzerland, the group has been working successfully with VIENNA Textilservice in Austria for five years. This family-owned company is one of the market leaders in Austria with regard to sustainability. This cooperation has made it possible for Servitex to expand its sustainable linen rental concept in Austria too. Rolf Slickers – Managing Director of Servitex GmbH – states that the association welcomes the opportunity to offer the same standard to its hotel customers who also operate hotels in Austria. Apart from that, the high-quality organic cotton bed linen is also well received by hotel guests, according to Slickers.

The group of companies have been increasing their focus on sustainability for several years now. Only last year, it was decided to completely convert their linen and towels to “Made in Green” certified products. A concept which covers the central processes of spinning, weaving, dyeing and sewing.
