Singtex Industrial Co., Ltd was established in 1989 and originally focused on the development of functional textiles. Recognizing the impact of rapid climate change on the survival of the human race and to uphold the philosophy that we must all do our part to protect our only planet, Singtex has invested hundreds of millions of dollars over recent years to establish a pioneering R&D center and precision environmentally dyeing center. Product emphasis is now the development of eco-friendly functional textiles, making Singtex one of the leading providers of such eco-friendly functional textiles in Taiwan. Singtex is continuing to invest in innovative R&D in order to become a sustainable supplier of eco-friendly textiles to international clothing brands. In addition to being a perennial winner of the Taiwan Excellence awards, Singtex was also named a Top 100 Taiwan Brand, winner of the Taiwan Mittelstand Award and numerous international accolades. In 2014, Singtex was formally listed on the stock exchange (TWSE: 4433).

Our best green product and why? Singtex successfully invented the S.Café® eco-friendly coffee yarn in 2008. Made from plastic bottles and coffee grounds, this green, high-tech yarn is environmentally friendly, de-odorizing, and fast drying, UV-resistant and has many different applications. When applied to textile fibers it enhances their functionality without affecting dye performance. No solvents are used in the production process. Nor does it require the high-temperature carbonizing treatment of conventional carbonized materials. This reduces CO2 emissions by around 2.7 kg. The technology has since been recognized by the top three invention awards in the world. (Gold and Merit Award at INPEX in Pittsburg, USA; Gold medal at iENA Nuremberg; Gold and Special award at the International Exhibitions of Inventions Geneva)
