    About nopma

    Visionary thinking for our customers!

    The experience of three generations has taught us what our strengths are. We encourage know-how, efficiency and teamwork. Together with our customers we look for optimal solutions to fulfill all requirements on our side.

    1952 | Carl Meiser GmbH & Co. KG was founded by day- and nightwear manufacturer Carl Meiser. Under the direction of Mr. Dieter Meiser and Mrs. Ingrid Riedinger the company became a systems supplier for major retail companies in the German-speaking area. A fully integrated production (design, surface generation, dyeing, finishing, cutting, tailoring and warehouse management) made for high flexibility and delivery reliability.
    1990 | The change in textile procurement market in the early 1990s obliged the company to reinvent themselves radically. Downsizing and identification of new market segments formed the foundation of successful continuity for Dieter Meiser.
    1995 | With the entry of Mrs. Catrin Riedinger the company was transformed into a contract service provider for dying / finishing of high quality lingerie customers. At the same time the division coated technical textiles was founded with manufacturing the first automotive product.
    1999 | It quickly became clear that technical textiles based on coating could only be achieved with customized solutions. From 1999 the company starts the development and realization of its own coating technologies.
    2005 | With the entry of Mr. Jens Meiser the new division Meiser- Know How in Textiles was reorganized to become a service supplier. The nopma division then starts to be treated as an independent division and to expand largely. The basic principles of KAIZEN and KVPs are comprehended by the company and develop to become the base of efficient product and process development.
    2010 | Patents on manufacturing procedures as well as certifications in terms of quality management ISO 9001 and resource management following bluesign® document the achievements in professionalism. The development of new markets in the aviation, automotive, protection, caravan, furniture and other industries lets the company develop to be an innovative, solid and reliable partner to our customers. Concurrent investments in machine development, high-tech machinery, research and laboratory capacities create the foundation for new products and customer relations.

    2015 | Commissioning a new large development laboratory with all testing technologies necessary for synthetics and textiles create further potential for new innovations. At the same time the company invests in additional production surfaces and system capacities. Continuous improvement processes and the motivation to always optimize added value for customers are crucial to our philosophy and actively implemented in our corporate culture.

    2016 | Investment in an additional high-tech production line to manufacture our nopma technical textiles. Implementation of our first series production deliveries directly into the NAFTA economic area.

    2017 | Update of our central energy supply to add thermal recovery and to reduce emissions. Complete modernisation and technological upgrade of our BM2 coating line. 25th anniversary in the area of our Öko-Tex environmental management certification. Successful implementation of our new ERP management system in the area of Meiser know-how in textiles.

    2018 | Reconstruction of the power plant and replacement of the provisional arrangements after the fire damage at the end of 2017. Start of construction of the innovation and technology center with production expansion.

    2020 | Commissioning of the innovation and technology center in combination with the expansion of the production area. Construction of a production facility for protective textiles in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    2021 | Expansion of product segments within the areas of sustainable textile coatings and resource efficiency. Investment and commissioning of a revolver embossing system. This means that coatings and flexible materials such as textiles can be made even more functional. Implementation of another CO2 reduction project with the afforestation of a climate-resistant mixed forest here on site. This new forest with over 700 beech, oak, maple, larch and spruce trees will bind more CO2 every year to compensate for another part of our emissions.
