Sandler Group – nonwovens specialists
At Sandler Group, we are nonwovens specialists. Our purpose drives us and motivates us to change. Because change affects us all and is the basis for long-term and sustainable success. Our values form the basis of our actions. They are our foundation. Our unique selling proposition. The topic of sustainability is also deeply anchored in our long corporate history. And it accompanies our nonwovens specialists at both our locations on a daily basis.
Our Purpose – what drives us
Specializing in daily comfort – with every single fiber
Our specialty is everyday life. Because our nonwoven products make life easier, quieter, more comfortable and safer. We have made it our mission to combine convenience and sustainability. To this, we are committed - with every fiber of our being.
Reliability means quality and Sandler is quality. We rely on select raw materials and the highest production standards. To us, reliability also means being a true partner. We do not simply deliver goods. We stand for competent advice, comprehensive service and first-class products.
Our customers can count on us. To support the further processing of our products, we always focus on easy handling and high comfort. Not only do we develop new products together, we establish true partnerships.
As a family-operated company, we think long-term. To think long-term is to act sustainably. Of course, this means treating people, as well as resources, responsibly. Whether it is personnel development, production processes or recycling concepts: we aspire to be pioneers in our industry.
Our customers can rest assured: We are aware of our responsibility. For us, sustainability is not a trend, but has been a central aspect of our corporate strategy for decades. We strive to constantly improve and actively contribute to shaping transformation processes.
We enjoy change and like new challenges. We do not lose ourselves in haphazard trial and error but rely on structured agility. Our operation is well-tuned, but we embrace opportunities for optimization. We achieve high quality, because we are open to constantly developing new things.
We implement our customers' requirements, no matter how complex. Coupling an experienced team with state-of-the-art production lines allows us to deliver optimized nonwoven products. We always aspire to set new standards.
Nonwovens specialists – our team
Our employees in the Change, Make, and Create environments work every day to develop nonwoven products for a wide range of industries. In Schwarzenbach, Germany and also in Perry, Georgia. To develop the best possible solutions for your requirements.
Sustainable action – for a better future
Sustainability is part of our DNA. Because since our founding, this topic has been anchored in our corporate philosophy. We conduct intensive research into the use of natural raw materials. We develop ways to minimize production waste or make it recyclable. Wherever feasible, we rely on single-polymer nonwovens. On raw materials from renewable sources. And we use energy management systems at our production facilities that closely monitor our emissions and energy consumption to identify potential savings.
Our company history – the history of Sandler Group
Over the past decades, we have developed into one of the world's leading nonwovens manufacturers. Companies from around the globe rely on nonwoven products from Sandler. Our beginnings lie in the nearby city of Hof, where it all began in 1879 with a cotton wool factory. Over the years, the focus was shifted to synthetic nonwovens and today Sandler offers nonwoven solutions for the construction, household, hygiene, industrial, mobility and wipes sectors.
Our locations – Germany and USA
Our origins are in the Bavarian region of Upper Franconia, Germany. In 2016, we opened a second site in the USA. At our headquarters in Schwarzenbach, Bavaria, and in Perry, Georgia, we develop and produce high-quality nonwoven solutions. This enables us to realize shorter supply chains. And implement the requirements of our international customers in an uncomplicated way. In proven Sandler quality, of course.
Our principles – Compliance
Compliance with rules and laws is a matter of course for Sandler. In addition, we uphold human rights and ethical principles. The protection of our environment is also a matter of heartfelt importance. Sandler promotes fair competition, rejects corruption and actively promotes safety and equality in the workplace. We expect our partners to share our principles. To detect and prevent compliance violations, we rely on our employees as well as our customers and business partners.
