More than 50 % of Sandler AG’s turnover represents products younger than five years. This is based on a systematic development of new products and production methods, which is subject to an increasing cooperation with universities and textile research centers.
The technical and hygiene markets are both extremely important to Sandler but there are many other markets of interest to the company. Sandler nonwovens, for example, are already used in 27 different car models, are increasingly accepted in vacuum cleaner filter bags, provide comfortable personal hygiene in wet wipes and are accepted in the furniture and mattress industry as upholstery materials. Sandler’s sales were €113 million in 2005.
