GARMENT FINISHING/LAUNDRY

Washing. Dying. Finishes. Sustainability.

The WKS laundries at the locations in Romania, Bulgaria and in the Dominican Republic have been specialists in garment finishing for many years. We have immense know-how due to our many years of experience with our team of qualified specialists. We know exactly what our customers demand, but also what we owe to our environment. Our customers are not only the big players, but also the start-ups and medium-sized companies in the industry. We look after each and every customer individually, from the washing of prototypes, through patterning and doubling, to production manufacturing. In addition to production machines, all of our laundries have patterning machines that guarantee the correct translation of recipes from individual parts to the loading quantities of the production machines. Our recipes are designed in such a way that, in addition to achieving the desired result, they are also as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. What exactly does that mean, environmentally friendly and sustainable? Water and energy are valuable resources. That's why we develop individual processes that, on the one hand, meet our customers' wishes, but at the same time do not lose sight of the environment. In this way, we achieve the lowest possible water consumption and significantly reduce the use of chemicals and energy as well as the generation of waste products and dirty wastewater. In this way, we can develop processes that are gentle on our customers as well as on the environment and our employees, and in this way we contribute to a cleaner textile and apparel industry. "As the WKS Group, we want to actively promote environmental protection through sustainable action and resource-saving processes, without having to accept any losses in terms of WKS quality. Through innovation, investment and a smart, sustainable strategy, we will realize our vision and help make the textile and apparel industry more sustainable. In doing so, we are committed to the highest social and health standards at home and abroad and actively advocate for these rights at our respective sites."

WKS Bulgaria

Bulgaria is becoming increasingly interesting as a production location. A long-standing tradition in the production of clothing and an attractive cost level make the country an interesting location. Since 2004, WKS has been operating a laundry in Bulgaria; since 2013, we have been carrying out all finishing services in Kardzhali.

Our washing and dyeing center is one of the largest laundries in Eastern Europe and, in a joint venture with Denim Village, one of the most renowned and high-quality specialists in the denim industry, it offers almost all possibilities of state-of-the-art washing and finishing processes on more than 6,000 sqm.

Together, we have a wide range of washing and finishing units that can process up to 50,000 parts per week. The spectrum ranges from modern washing and finishing machines to stone-wash units, brush robots, ozone machines and environmentally friendly laser equipment. Our own downstream wastewater treatment plant also ensures that pre-treatment water is passed on to the municipal wastewater treatment plant.

 

The laundry offers all current procedures.

  • Authentic washings
  • All dyeing methods from reactive, pigment, olddye, colddye, substantive, dipdye etc.
  • Creative optics
  • Used effects
  • Achievement of all desired handle variations

 

Both CMT and full-purchase transactions can be implemented, or the company can acquire its own finishing operations in the Kardzhali area. At our location in Bulgaria, we enable our customers to achieve interesting synergy effects and cost savings by bundling various services under one roof. These numerous advantages and the know-how of many years are already estimated and used among other things by the most well-known brands, like Levi's, Scotch & Soda, Brax, Gerry Weber, Betty Barclay etc..

WKS Romania

Romania is still an important location for the production of clothing. The WKS Group has been successfully represented in Romania at the Talmaciu site for over 20 years. Our long-employed and experienced team washes and dyes up to 20,000 garments a week and gives them the finishing desired by our customers. The Talmaciu site has a dyeing technology center, with the help of which any color setting can be developed and adjusted within the shortest possible time. The capacity of the "Used department" alone is up to 4,500 parts. Our "Finishing department", with more than 30 employees, completes our laundry services, from the application of patent buttons, to all ironing and topper work, to the final inspection.

 

Thanks to our modern finished parts warehouse with a capacity of over 30,000 parts, we can combine deliveries on request and thus reduce CO2 emissions caused by unnecessary partial deliveries.

WKS Dominican Republic

In one of the future countries of the industrial clothing industry with attractive wage levels, WKS operates another laundry location in the free trade zone for local customers, for the American market, but of course also for the European market.Up to 60,000 pieces (denim, flats, all dyeing and washing processes) can be produced here per week on more than 3,500 sqm. Of course, this site is BSCI-certified and uses only auxiliaries that comply with the ZDHC. To achieve environmentally friendly used effects, we have the latest generation of lasers from Jeanologia at this location. After the laundry processes, the water is directed to a nearby wastewater treatment plant that meets the most modern requirements.

 

The development of own, individual collections finds numerous buyers especially on the local market.
