Reinventing Comfortable Mobility Together

Outstanding design, reliable quality and loyal partnership with our customers, suppliers and producers are origin of our market value. That’s why the passengers of our customers experience incomparable travel comfort. Ahead of the art, we design and weave Premium Austrian Fabrics.

Premium Fabrics for Bus

For decades, our fabrics have been installed in coaches, mini buses and city liners.

Textile Design

Design is one of the leading features of premium textiles. We reinvent ourselves constantly without losing our signature and we know: only if we challenge the existing design rules and anticipate the trends of our business, we are able to offer innovative design to our customers.

The textiles are constantly developed not only visually but substancially. That’s why our technical development ensures the availability of new materials, textile constructions and finishing techniques. This way, our customers benefit from modern fabrics in consistingly fine quality.

However, we’re also able to adapt existing products according to your wishes, changing design and colourways, apply special features and meet customer individual requirements, norms and standards. We create your individual premium fabric from design and technical feasibility to serial production.


We focus on design and technology as well as on the development of innovative and sustainable fabrics. The desire for innovations is growing exponentially, and the issue of a long product life cycle is becoming significantly more important. Innovation means far more that just identifying the colours and trends of the future; above all, it must focus on the establishment of disruptive production techniques, sustainable value creation and the guarantee that of we can offer our customers a continuously optimised application scope.

With our individually designed “Techdays”, we make it possible for our customers to learn more about ground-breaking technologies at an early stage, to convince themselves of the application benefits for their vehicles and to follow their implementation at the series production level when they are used for their exclusive application.

Original Fabric Creations

We create ready-made collections for vehicle operators and original equipment manufacturers that meet their specific quality standards. We offer a choice of varying design themes that are based on the individual tastes of our customers. We design textiles that vary in terms of the materials and production technologies used and the level of innovativeness, and specifically address each individual customer’s design language. Together with you, we realise customer-specific requirements and briefs.

Technical Development

Thanks to the direct relationship between design and technical development, we work on solutions that are not only visually outstanding but also have a guaranteed long life cycle, offer process reliability and are easy to work with. The most demanding textiles are created using a wide range of different manufacturing methods in close cooperation with internal production and finishing partners. Our fabrics are influenced by the particular customer-specific requirements, the choice of the materials used and the design. We implement quality assurance systems end-to-end along the entire value creation chain.


Fulfilment of customer needs is prime to leading service company KNEITZ. Thus, it’s our task to answer as many challenges of our customers as possible with high-quality solutions. All partners benefit from textile solutions with great service accompanying exceptional textile products.

We assist you as development partner and advise you in terms of design and material or give you proposals to individual designs tailored to your business. Thanks to in-house production, we escort the development from the initial sample to serial production and equip textiles with special features locally or in close collaboration with external finishing partners. Our internal quality assurance secures meeting quality and flamability standards and customer-specific demands. We also arrange logistic processes at your discretion with reliable shipment of our highest quality.

Textile Development Partner

Your future interior fabric must meet special requirements, or you would like a customised fabric that reflects your corporate identity? We will be by your side as your dedicated development partner. We are delighted to be able to offer you our expert advice when it comes to the design, materials and features to ensure that you get the fabric you need; rest assured, we always have your best interests at heart.

Our creative design department can set new trends and also design completely new patterns on the basis of your brief. Our technical development department accompanies your design from initial sample to series production and ensures that our quality standards and the process stability are maintained at all times. Our fabrics keep what they promise thanks to a mature development process.

Fabric Production

Thanks to our extensive range of machinery, we can deal with yarn rewinding and sectional warping ourselves. This facilitates higher production planning flexibility right from the start of the production process and also allows us to quickly and reliably respond to spontaneous order increases.

Electronic machine data capturing and the respective production planning ensures that the actual weaving process focuses on the efficient use of our human, equipment and material resources. This allows us to always achieve outstanding quality and maximum cost-effectiveness, regardless of which weaving technique is used – benefits which we pass on directly to our customers.

Equipment and Finishing

Besides such features as distortion compensation, tension adjustment and coatings, which we achieve with our own equipment, we are also able to add further properties such as protective coatings, laminated finishes, embossing and durability optimisation to the fabric thanks to our production partners, whom we have worked with for many years. Particularly in this area, a wide range of far-reaching innovations is available to the textile industry. That is also why KNEITZ actively addresses the development of new fabric properties and finishes.
