In the years following this the company has been distinguished by its persistent drive towards excellence in production processes, becoming the first weaver of fabrics for screen printing and filtration in Italy to obtain ISO14001 certification and, subsequently, the first in the world to certify its fabrics according to the strict Oeko-Tex standard.
The EXTRIS weaving mill is equipped with advanced technologies such as a plasma treatment system and laser guided process machines, and has also expanded its operations over the years to include the weaving of technical belts.
Subsequent to these events, EXTRIS also built up its filter fabricating operations by adopting technologies such as hot and laser cutting, hot sealing, ultrasonic and radiofrequency sealing, large pantograph cutting and automatic die-cutting.
Finally, in 2020, in response to the government’s requests, EXTRIS developed a range of devices for respiratory tract protection. A so-called “clean room” was set up for the production of medical devices. The company has obtained ISO 13485 certification and is actively contributing to the fight against the pandemic.
At the end of 2020, the international presence of EXTRIS fabrics and filters was further strengthened with the opening of the branch in Istanbul (TR).
