Visit of Managing Director Peter Koppermann to our producers in Bangladesh
Visit to Dhaka despite high temperatures and extreme humidity
Relying only on the reports of external auditors is not enough for us! We always want to know about the situation of our production partners on site.
For this reason, Mr Peter Koppermann visited our supplier for TB30 mattress protectors in September in Bangladesh – despite temperatures of +40°C and a humidity of 80% !!!
Although many improvements have already been initiated and implemented, the bar of our demand for sustainable, responsible, environmentally- and employee-friendly production is far from being reached.
A final discussion between the factory’s business and production managers, Mr Koppermann, and the consultants of the import association German Importers (VFI) already brought initial results. Shortly after the visit, a new Compliance Manager was hired who, together with the consultants from German Importers, will be responsible for the implementation of the guidelines.
We will closely follow the process of the factory on its way to becoming a model company and will continue to report on it!
