The Lenzing Group is an international group of companies with its headquarters in Austria, production sites in all major markets and a global network of sales and marketing offices. Lenzing provides the global textile and nonwovens industry with high-quality cellulose fibers.
Lenzing is the leading supplier in many business-to-business markets of cellulose fiber with quality and innovative power, which set standards for man-made cellulose fibers world-wide. Seventy years of fiber production expertise make us the only producer world-wide of all three man-made cellulose fiber generations, from classic viscose to Lenzing Modal® to TENCEL®.
For the Lenzing Group sustainability has been a reality for many years. The natural raw material, wood or wood pulp is derived from managed tree farms for Lenzing Viscose®, Lenzing Modal®, and TENCEL®. With consideration to the manufacturing process, TENCEL® utilizes a closed-loop system to reuse solvent. After almost half a century, a new chapter is now being written in the
history of Lenzing Modal®: Edelweiss!
Edelweiss stands for the gentle treatment of the environment that is possible because Lenzing Modal® is produced in an integrative manufacturing process. Production in Austria is performed in a symbiotic manner – the raw material, pulp, is produced at the same site as the Modal fiber itself so that energy and other resources are conserved. Lenzing Modal® deserves the name of Edelweiss for this eco-friendly process - carbon neutral softness by Edelweiss.
Lenzing's unique combination of consistent customer orientation with leadership in quality, innovation and technology is the foundation of our success. Lenzing’s Global Merchandising Team is available to provide product and sourcing information, as well as a Global Technical Team to provide production guidance. Lenzing is leading fiber innovation.
