Print made professional

We know that printing on nonwoven fabrics for the hygiene industry needs to be handled as professionally as producing nonwoven fabrics itself. To master this and to offer our customers innovative and efficient solutions, we continuously invest in new technology and in our highly skilled and dedicated people.

The big idea

When founded in Germany in 2007, Innowo Print was a small, regional, independent printing company with a vision to make world-class printing directly on lightweight nonwoven fabrics for the hygiene industry. The big idea was to make an alternative to print on film to improve the visual experience and give the designer new possibilities and more space to play with. An alternative that should still be safe to use in products with direct skin contact.

People Printing Perfection

This is our customer promise – our people naturally engage in strong and personal relationships – and use the different inks, the different print sleeves and the different settings on the press – everything to perfection. Detailed designs in many colours, scent, hydrophilic feature or other attributes can be added to the nonwoven in the printing process. Our people print on many types of nonwovens ranging from 8 g/m2 and up to 100 g/m2

It starts here

Two innovative people - one from a nonwoven fabrics manufacturer company and one from a print company saw the business opportunity in combining their expertise and shortly after a joint venture was established. They named the new company Innowo Print.The first part of the name derives from the words “innovative” and “nonwoven”. The nonwoven fabrics manufacturer was Fibertex A/S (now Fibertex Personal Care) who bought 15% of the shares. In other words - Innowo Print and Fibertex A/S became a Joint venture.
