History

Pantex S.p.A. (whose name comes from the Greek "pan" - all and "tex" - textile) was first established in Biella in 1972 and grew out of companies experiences which had started in the early 1900s : scouring, carbonising and combing wool, as well as collecting, sorting, garnetting and reprocessing wool wastes from combing, spinning and weaving.


In 1983 it moved from Biella to its current mills nearby Mongrando, where the company has centralised the sorting, cleaning, blending and opening of fibres.
Pantex provides stock ready for immediate delivery and has developed this service for markets in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. Its supplies tops, open tops, scoured wool and carbonised wool on all the fineness range.


Pantex has been an active member of the Associazione Nazionale del Commercio Laniero since 1977 and Sistema Moda Italia as well as of the International Wool Textile  Organisation.

Quality control

     

    We have a certified Interwoollabs internal laboratory for measuring the fineness with OFDA and Airflow and the length of the wool tops with ALMETER.  We also have a laboratory to control the wool conditioning. All materials processed in our plant or in outside processing facilities are checked in our laboratory to ensure their quality.




Traceability

    We buy greasy wool in Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, and South America.
    With Australian origin wool we pay close attention to breeders fulfilling the National Wool Declaration. Our customers can choose from wools that are:

    • No Mulesed (NM), from farms where mulesing is not practiced
    • Ceased-Mulesing (CM), from farms where mulesing is no longer practiced
    • Pain Relief (PR), from farms where animals are treated with anesthetic


Animal Welfare

Sustainability

     

    More and more consumers believe that sustainability is a key value in their purchasing choices and our company pays the utmost attention to animal welfare in the supply of animal fibres in respect to the environment and social concerns. Where possible we use certified wool with recognized international standards and we avoid the use of animal fibres from endangered  species.

    In the transformation of our wool, we focus on choosing plants where:

     

    • the consumption of energy and natural resources, the polluting emissions and, where   possible, the reuse of processed waters are minimized;
    • the use of harmful chemicals as well as the risk to the environment and workers are minimized;
    • it buys energy from renewable energy sources;
    • waste production is reduced and recovery of rejects and packaging materials and other recyclables are used;
    • the fundamental rights of workers are respected and they are not exposed to situations that could pose a risk to their health and safety.

     

    Environmental responsibilities and sustainability is very important to our company and it is part of our business philosophy. We seek to achieve this through our commitment to use renewable energy and extend this business practice throughout our supply chain and to our customer base.
