Lecture named „Ausreisser“

Students day at Hexonia
Companies in Nettetal opened their door for students and so did HEXONIA GmbH on 6th June 2019. Thus, six students interested in working in textile industry after school/university got insights into diverse departments of HEXONIA in administration and production. Starting with a short presentation the students went onto a tour through the company with HEXONIA staff and could even fulfil some practical tasks for example in cutting technique. Principally HEXONIA offers jobs in the following areas: tailoring, sewing, process technology, precision engineering, machinists like textile machine operators, chemists as well as commercial orientated jobs in administration and commerce and textile engineers.
Following the invitation of Gerd Hexels, managing director of HEXONIA, twenty-five members of MIT Nettetal met at HEXONIA to learn more about the production of innovative, highly technological clothing, protective garment and load carrying systems particularly for military, police and security staff. MIT is a local CDU committee within the community for medium-sized companies and economy, During a fine fingerfood buffet participants had time for questions and more detailed conversations.
Hexonia is expanding
On 27th February 2019 we had the groundbreaking ceremony on our new premises opposite our headquarters located van-der-Upwich-Str. 40 in Nettetal. It was a bright sunny day when our managing director Gerd Hexels welcomed guests and employees, the mayor and some representatives of the city Nettetal besides major companies involved in the construction of the new premises. Due to an accelerated growth in turnover we are actually running out of space in our production building. The new premises is providing space not least for creative innovations. Four production and logistics halls 750 m² each on a total area of 8.000 m² shall be finalised by the end of September. HEXONIA has already bought further areas in order to be prepared for the future and being competitive with enough space for research and development.

Hexonia takes over Nautilus production
For many years HEXONIA GmbH has produced innovative clothing systems and components using seamless knitting technologies. As such, we have maintained a healthy and successful partnership with the company Nautilus GmbH & Co KG in Jahnsbach. In order to meet the challenges of product development and volume production, we have taken over the production of Nautilus GmbH & Co. KG as of September 1st, 2018. With the acquisition, 20 employees as well as 11 seamless knitting and other machines are transferred to HEXONIA GmbH. The location in Jahnsbach, with a production area of 1.800 m² in total, will be maintained as well as continuously expanded and modernised. With the takeover, HEXONIA has added another powerful garment capability to complement our production of seamless clothing components. We are convinced that with the acquisition we have made important steps towards our ambitious aims regarding products, quality and output.
For the Nettetal location, we have also installed additional 15 new seamless knitting machines in a newly constructed building, to help achieve our targets in these specialized areas.
New additional premises from 18th July 2016 onwards
We expand – and have adapted our infrastructure.
Dear customers, friends and partners of HEXONIA®GmbH,
Excellent feedback to our products and services has spurred us further to achieve maximum performance. But creativity needs scope for development. To reach this claim we have adapted our infrastructure and have moved to a new building with our headquarter/administration and our Prototype studio. 100 m away from our previous site we have designed a new building with totally 1.200 m² floor space as well as sufficient parking areas in order to welcome you in attractive showrooms.
The free space in our previous building in Heinrich-Haanen-Street 4 will be enlarged by a production hall to allow further manufacturing facilities to be installed. Beside this, we will use additional space on this site for quality management and a modern laboratory.
As of now you will find us in our new headquarter with the following address:
The building is at the corner to Heinrich-Haanen-Street
