About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

Rökona Textilwerk GmbH & Co. KG was established in 1961 as a spin-off of Gerhard Rösch GmbH, founded in 1949. In its early years, Rökona was the fabric and development supplier for the in-house nightwear collection and patented several groundbreaking fabrics such as Brokalon or Batistalon.

External customers from markets outside the industry sector, such as high-quality seat cover manufacturer Simca, were attracted very soon. Rökona was able to establish itself particularly in the automotive sector and has been exclusively manufacturing technical textiles since the 1970s.

The automotive core market has seen constant progress, but also segments such as the medical sector, functional clothing and industrial products are being supplied today with a multitude of innovative solutions.

Today, Rökona has about 200 employees in Tübingen, which is where its technology department, knitting factory, dye works and finishing plant are located to this date. For the Asian market, Rökona maintains a joint venture, in addition to an independent sales office in China.

Manufacture takes place in the Rösch Kft. subsidiary in Hungary.

Rökona has been honoured with several awards by the Federal Government and the Federal States for its pro-family staffing policy, including the Work and Family Audit, the Corporate Excellence Award, the Total E-Quality title and the “Great Place to Work” title. Not only the in-house day-care centre, established as early as 1971, but also the numerous flexible working models are an integral part of the staffing policy.

Sustainability also plays a major role in the production chain. For example, Rökona has recently become a bluesign® partner. The categorisation of the textile supply chain and the elimination of high-risk substances are a major focus, but the responsible handling of resources is also an important element of corporate philosophy. Energy recovery is considered just as essential as the continuous improvement of energy efficiency.
