Our industry defines us
AS WE DEFINE OUR INDUSTRY

Vertical Integration

All products are distributed directly from our stock to a broad range of shipowners and shipping companies, without intervention by third parties. Vertical integration of all phases – from the spinning of the yarn all the way through to deliveries on board.

Quality Assurance

Our production processes are grounded in human and environmental rights and our products comply with the most stringent health and safety standards. Efficient management and an ongoing drive to outdo ourselves have led to a sustainable and agile supply chain. Together, these are our commitments to our clients and their workforces worldwide.

Traceability is an important part of our quality guarantee. Since we manufacture our products at our own production facilities and with select production partners we are able to maintain a consistent, Scandia-proven quality standard.
