ceo Schoeller Textil AG, the Swiss textile and technology company, announces a shift in leadership as Joachim Kath takes over as CEO.  Following a 10-year career at the global textile solutions brand known for its innovative technical fabrics and smart textile finishing technologies for more than 150 years, CEO Siegfried Winkelbeiner is moving into a well-deserved retirement later this month. Joachim Kath, who comes from the chemical industry, has been working closely with Winkelbeiner as COO at Schoeller for the past year and a half.  

The retiring CEO Siegfried Winkelbeiner (on the right) sums up his Schoeller era in one sentence: “Throughout the years, we have compared Schoeller to a ship under sail and have had to weather many a stormy challenge.” The team successfully pulled together and has been able to strengthen the company’s reputation as an innovation leader. On more than one occasion, exciting collaborative projects with both existing and new customers opened up previously-uptapped business fields and markets. Under the management of Siegfried Winkelbeiner, Schoeller has successfully weathered even the enormous appreciation of the Swiss franc and the current pandemic. His primary focus has always been to create a working environment in which staff and management have the opportunity to exercise their talents and skills for the benefit of the Schoeller Group.

The transition comes after long-term planning. Since February 2020, and in close partnership with Siegfried Winkelbeiner, Joachim Kath (on the left) has been preparing as Schoeller COO to take over its management. Joachim Kath originally comes from Flensburg (DE) and, following his studies of Chemical Engineering in Karlsruhe, shaped his professional career in the chemical industry with Ciba (-Geigy) / BASF in Basel (CH). His career over 30 years has incorporated engineering, production and marketing & sales in diverse management
functions – in a wide range of business segments for various industries and areas of application around the globe. Joachim Kath spent 12 years of his career dedicated to textile finishing, with a period of intensive travel in Asia and a 3-year stay in the USA. Asked how he sees himself, Joachim Kath said: “The common thread running through all my assignments and business activities is process orientation, interest in new paths, and an instinct for what is feasible – with the goal of achieving customer benefits and satisfaction. Kath aims to ensure that Schoeller can continue to face the challenges of changing market requirements with outstanding and exceptional products, while evolving and innovating to stay ahead of consumer needs for the future.  High performance capability, sustainable product development, premium quality, reliability, productivity, and keeping the customer as the central focus of all activities continue as essential keys to Schoeller’s continued business success.

The two CEOs know one another well from their previous work and from joint international projects at Ciba-Geigy and BASF. Joachim Kath regards it as a privilege to be able to continue writing the story of Schoeller’s success and to be able to build on Siegfried Winkelbeiner’s multi-facetted initiatives and extraordinarily close customer relations in so many market segments, geographic locations and projects. Living up to this is simultaneously a challenge and an inspiration.

performance_221 In Schoeller Summer 2023, the focus is on fairly-produced, multifunction textiles with environmentally-friendly finishes and exciting membrane technologies, as well as long-lasting products with recycled or bio-based components. These responsibly-produced innovations are part of Schoeller’s new biocosmo line, symbolizing sustainability and responsible innovations in combination with high-tech performance.

biocosmo sets a clear and specific focus within the Schoeller Performance Collection: extraordinary sustainability. The innovative schoeller®-allweather three-layer fabric combines sustainability with functionality. Produced under fair conditions, the light outdoor and urban weight makes an impression with the new, highly-breathable aerobrane weather protection and ecological elements: It consists mainly of a high-quality, recycled polyamide in combination with the new E-Spinning membrane and is finished with Schoeller’s water-repelling ecorepel® Bio technology that is based on renewable raw materials.
Outstanding wind and weather protection is also offered in the elastic schoeller®-allweather fabrics with a bionic c_change® climate membrane, which actively reacts to the ambient temperature. As ideal travelling companions made of recycled polyester in an elegant twill quality in a vivid violet shade. A heavy ottoman quality, also featuring PFC-free ecorepel® Bio technology, is made of recycled polyamide and recycled elastan, providing outstanding tear resistance when an extra portion of protection is required.

Freedom of movement, sustainability and high-energy colors characterize the 2-way stretch schoeller®-dryskin with recycled polyester and ecological ecorepel® Bio technology. Excellent moisture transport and reliable abrasion resistance make it ideal for all kinds of active sports. The pastel shades of the sturdy schoeller®-dynamic outdoor or accessory fabric lend it a certain lightness and an understated look. Recycled polyamide, recycled elastane and environment-friendly water repellence thanks to ecorepel® Bio finish make it sustainable through and through.

The elastic schoeller®-shape cotton blend with recycled polyamide is perfect for the golf course, but also ideal for an urban environment. The natural, light, two-tone effect is reminiscent of worn denim, and the 3XDRY® Bio technology finishes the pants fabric with bio-based feelgood technology. The ultra-light schoeller®-softight ripstop with organic camouflage print produces a semitransparent, downproof jacket shell. Made of 100 percent recycled polyamide and is finished with ecorepel® Bio technology, it too takes its place in the biocosmo portfolio.

The new standard for textile innovations

Schoeller Textil AG sharpens its sustainability focus and unveils holistic rebranding efforts

Long before sustainability became a trend in the textile industry, Schoeller Textil AG, which has been innovating technical fabrics and smart textile finishing technologies for more than 150 years, made it its mission to develop textile innovations in harmony with nature. Now the company is undergoing an extensive rebranding, whilst unveiling its strong brand foundation in the process. The result embodies the newly defined guiding principle of “Textile Intelligence” - the development and successful implementation of innovative textiles and intelligent textile technologies.

Innovations in the textile industry must meet requirements on several levels – offering both new and optimized solutions to sociological, ecological, and economic challenges of our time. Creating this holistic added value is firmly rooted in the Schoeller brand origin and is still the top priority in textile product development today. The brand essence has thus remained the same, but it has been embodied anew.

“At the beginning of the rebranding process, it was clear to us we had to root ourselves in (Swiss) tradition in order to fully realize Schoeller’s entire brand potential and successfully explore new, digital paths,” said Antonio Gatti Balsarri, Schoeller chief commercial officer.

“The goal of the rebranding is to communicate our traditional brand values in a completely new brand presence. The result was a sharpened brand profile, a clear brand strategy and tonality, as well as a clean, modern corporate design. We will specifically address our sustainability commitment through the expansion of digital touchpoints, their cross-media use, and an increased online presence. Simplified, straightforward, sustainable - in accordance with our greatest source of inspiration: nature.”


Paramount to Schoeller’s corporate identity is the full disclosure of brand principles and transparency around all business divisions. A simplified logo design was established by reducing logo elements and colors for a modern look and feel that can be produced in a much more resource-efficient manner. Schoeller’s new brand mantra of “Textile Intelligence” speaks to its company mission of more than 150 years.

Schoeller has been a bluesign system partner from the very beginning and uses the Higg Facility Environmental Module (FEM) to assess sustainable performance. In addition to environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes and careful material selection, the highest quality and sustainability standards in production also mean guaranteeing fair working conditions. Schoeller follows a Code of Conduct that guarantees transparent production chains, environmental protection, and fair working conditions.

“Zero Textile Waste” becomes a targeted brand strategy.

While the production of textiles and textile technologies is continuously being optimized to preserve resources, the manufacturing processes are often costly and complex. To this end, Schoeller offers new approaches to efforts around Zero Waste in the industry. Its new online shop, “Schoeller re-Fabric” sells textile remnants from production directly to designers and smaller productions to increase its overall production volume efficiency and avoid textile waste.

COBRANDING – the Schoeller brand enhances its innovative image as a textile supplier for collaborating partners. 

The use of Schoeller textiles and innovative textile technologies offers international textile manufacturers and designers such as Alberto, Alpha Tauri, Descente, Fila, Jack Wolfskin, Ortovox, Pikeur and Tracksmith a unique opportunity to combine highly functional features with design. For Schoeller, the focus is on strengthening our brand partners’ consumer offerings around sustainability and quality while collaboratively making important strides together toward an improved path for our industry’s future.
