About us

The FilamentFactory is a new company based on a proud heritage. It is a continuation of the former DuraFiber Technologies GmbH / Performance Fibers GmbH in Bad Hersfeld producing high tenacity multifilament yarns since 1966.

Due to a Management Buy Out in October 2017, supported by a strategic investor, the highly professional production plant operates as an independent manufacturer..

With new vigour and enthusiasm, a strengthened team and the passion for filaments, the company continues its high quality work, The FilamentFactory.

Uniformity, quality and continuity are at our core. We are committed to deliver top quality filament yarns for our industrial clients. We use first grade polymers only and maintain the highest conformity standards. So you can produce high end, premium products for your customers.

- PET (virgin, 100% recycled, Lowik, FR, UV resitant)
- PBT
- PPS
- PEEK

We produce the most uniform high tenacity multifilament yarns in the world
