We are well aware of the complexity of presenting new articles to the market from the early development stages to the successful market penetration. We see ourselves as the point where fibre innovations meet technological innovations.
With the input of our in-house knowledge coupled with first class quality systems and our willingness to develop specific characteristics into our yarns we offer new development opportunities to all of our customers.
We are happy to develop yarns to your specific requirements. By intensive communication we can follow your needs and assist you – not only with the production of specific articles, but also by offering our customers all the technical support that is required as well as our support in all certification procedures.
The flexibility of our production capabilities is being continuously upgraded so that we can offer favourable delivery terms. Our emphasis on R&D and service means that we are your partner right through to the final article.
The foundation of Litia’s R&D is a highly qualified and motivated team, who strive to search to find new ways of combining fibres and improving yarn properties. We are very active in research activities in which we build co-operations and partner-ships with industrial partners as well as research institutions from all over Europe and we do this by means of projects.
Today, we are building our future together with our partners and this is based upon trust and textile solutions to problems and challenges.
Litia’s quality standards have been built upon the quality management standard ISO 9001 and which has been the foundation of our quality system since 1995.
All of our employees take an active part in the process of quality. At separate stages each and everyone attends to yarn production with the maximum responsibility and according to pre-defined procedures and quality criteria.
The supervision process is carried out “on-line” in the production process with the help of the latest technology from our machines which are of the latest generation and in very well equipped physics and chemistry laboratories.
In 2001 the European Commission adopted the Sustainable Development Strategy, which it then updated in 2005. The strategy outlines the dangers facing us if we do not change our behaviour. It also proposes policy changes in the economic, social and ecological spheres, and stresses that it is vital for all three spheres to work closely together.
Despite the fact that the strategy contains no legally binding activities or time limits, Predilnica Litija d.o.o. is already incorporating measurable sustainable development components into its business policy.
The result that Predilnica Litija d.o.o. wishes to achieve by ensuring that all three spheres (business excellence, environmental responsibility and social responsibility) work in harmony is to ensure customer, owner and employee satisfaction.
Achievement of this objective lies in bringing together staff innovation and the introduction of innovative business processes for the development of forward-looking products or products for new areas of use.
In order to achieve this, we have set measurable targets on an area-by-area basis:
1. Business excellence:
– measuring added value per employee
– AAA credit rating
– incentives to encourage innovation by staff and performance measurement
– involvement in R&D projects and links with centres of knowledge at home and across Europe
2. Social responsibility:
– support to the local environment
– ensuring equal opportunities for staff
– continuing staff education and training
– ensuring health and safety at work and healthy staff lifestyles
– incorporation of trainees and students into business processes
– encouraging intergenerational cooperation
3. Environmental responsibility:
– optimal efficiency of production resources
– operating in line with the environmental protection rulebook
– operating in line with the waste handling rulebook
We are aware that qualified, motivated and content employees are our greatest asset and that they are responsible for achieving the highest levels of quality. It is not enough just to invest in research and development, it is crucial to invest in the know-how and research potential of our employees.
Litia carries out a continuous process of internal education and training.
External transfer of knowledge has been implemented in cooperation with universities, institutes, suppliers and other institutions.
Therefore Litia systematically builds long-term relationships with our employees and which is based upon mutual respect and loyalty.
