Our business pillars

TenCate Protective Fabrics’ success is built upon 5 pillars:


#1 Market-led

Everything we do begins with the end users who wear our products. Our goal is to empower them to feel confident on the job, thanks to garments that protect them from workplace hazards and allow them to perform their work in a comfortable, enjoyable way. All our product development starts with end user needs, just like most of our sales efforts are aimed at providing expert support to the HSE managers tasked with selecting new protective clothing.


#2 Global leadership

We’re not simply a fabric manufacturer – we are the global leader in the FR segment. With that expertise comes greater responsibility. There are still many companies who don’t know how to best protect their workers, which is why we invest in educating the market, in making sure HSE managers make the best selections, in helping our customers and other supply chain partners find a balance between protection, comfort and durability. As a global company, we’re able to supply every continent of the world with our FR fabrics and expertise across industries.


#3 Operational excellence

To provide our best support to the markets we serve, we aim to master our manufacturing process and build strong relationships with every partner in our long and complex supply chain in order to keep it running smoothly. Customers around the world rely on us for their safety, making it an urgent matter that these products are delivered to them in a timely and efficient manner.

#4 Strong brand

The TenCate Protective Fabrics brand is well-recognized in our markets and beyond, inspiring confidence around the world. Having been part of a global group of companies that were all active in textile applications, TenCate has built up a strong global brand synonymous with comfort and protection.


#5 Best-in-class

Our employees are our organisation’s biggest asset, which is why we continually invest in their training and development. It’s thanks to their combined expertise, drive, and ability to work together as a team that we’re able to serve our customers and end users. Building a best-in-class team includes fostering a sustainable mindset as part of our company culture. External impact starts internally.
