CARL KLOSTERMANN SÖHNE
In 1891, Carl Klostermann and his sons founded the Carl Klostermann Söhne company. Since then, the Klostermann family and their descendants have been manufacturing braided products, primarily cords and shoe laces, in Wuppertal.
The company philosophy is “We have to leave our children and grandchildren an intact ecological, social and economic structure. One cannot be had without the other ”(quote from the German Council for Sustainable Development). Since 2020, they have been covering part of their electricity needs with their own produced electricity, and the rest they buy as green electricity.
They also rely on short routes in purchasing, the use of sustainable products (e.g. Tencel™), avoidance and separation of waste and energy savings through targeted monitoring.
