Workwear doesn´t follow fashion trends: it needs to function, last, and remain ultimately timeless.
That’s why at Dimex sustainability actions are a balancing act between all aspects of durability.
Products must get their job done – the longer the less often they need to be replaced.
We are proud of the fact that there are practically no reclaims on our products.
Researching and focusing on the specific needs of our customers ensures that our products fulfill our customers’ needs immediately and perform longer in the conditions they are used.
Using the ecologically best and most advanced materials and production methods is important for us. That’s why we are constantly seeking new, more advanced solutions and putting them into use.
WE’RE PROUD THAT THERE ARE PRACTICALLY NO RECALLS ON OUR PRODUCTS.
We never compromise on the durability of materials, and remain at the forefront of adapting new and interesting fiber innovations. We also keep growing the share of recycled and organic materials in our selection.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT GOALS
Materials can always be improved. Major steps are constantly taken toward developing more flexible, durable, warmer, and cooler clothes. The wellbeing of the worker is part of our sustainability thinking. Comfort also improves the performance and extends the working career of workers.
REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT THROUGHOUT OUR VALUE CHAIN
Carbon emission calculators are everywhere these days. We too follow our production and product footprints closely. We help and guide our subcontractors, as specified by amfor BEPI, in their efforts toward more environment friendly production. And do our utmost to reduce the emissions from our own operations.
THE FACT THAT WE ONLY MAKE PRODUCTS THAT WITHSTAND BOTH TIME AND WEAR ADDS PURPOSE TO THE WORK MY TEAM AND I DO. BY EXTENDING THE LIFESPAN OF THE INDIVIDUAL PRODUCT WE LOWER ITS EMISSION FOOTPRINT OVER ITS LIFECYCLE SIGNIFICANTLY.”

SUSTAINABILITY ENHANCES CONTINUITY
You don’t need to reinvent the wheel for every season – well-designed and -liked articles stay in our collection indefinitely. Offering a pair of tried-and-tested pants for over ten years is nothing exceptional for us! Precise planning of production series’ and maintaining a manageable selection decrease wastage. The more precisely we can predict the desirability of our terms, the less loose sizes are left on the shelves.
Dimex products are used for so long, that they are usually in shambles or are inherited by the next generation of workers. That’s why you rarely find Dimex products at flea markets or as material for homemade handicrafts. That’s fine with us, as we love timelessness and using clothes for their full lifetime. We want to promote circularity and recycling of materials, but dream of producing the longest lasting workwear in the world one day: workwear, that never needs to be replaced.
