For a safe and healthy future
Thinking today about tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow, is the sustainable core of our vision and thus firmly anchored in our approach. We are committed to improved hygiene and thus to better health in society. We also strive to improve safety in professional and public environments. In short, together with you, we want to make the future a better version of the present. We work towards this vision with passion and enthusiasm, day after day.
Sustainable on all levels
In keeping with our vision, we act in accordance with sustainable principles. We do not want to simply explain what we're planning for the future, but rather what we are doing right now to help create a better tomorrow:
- Sustainable reusable solutions:
We think in terms of sustainable cycles and implement them using innovative rental solutions.
- Sustainable upcycling and recycling:
Repairing instead of throwing away is the key. Once products have reached the end of their life cycle, we use the materials to manufacture new products as much as possible.
- Sustainable corporate management:
Every employee has the opportunity to develop his or her full potential with us. Employees contribute their own ideas so that we can grow together sustainably.
- Sustainable management:
The concept of recycling is the foundation of our business. For us, resource conservation and economic efficiency therefore go hand in hand.
Efficient processes, resource-saving solutions, and sustainability throughout the whole company protect the environment and save you money.
CWS service areas
CWS is your partner for service solutions in the areas of health, safety, and protection. With our solutions, we pursue one goal: to bring out the best for our customers, employees, and the environment. Discover our service areas.
When it comes to workwear and protective clothing, functionality and safety are of the utmost importance. Equip your employees with high-quality work clothing with properties such as weather, flame, and chemical protection. To ensure that your staff remain well protected in the long term, we also take care of your workwear for you - from cleaning to repair. You can count on us for everything to do with workwear. Take a look for yourself!
Dust control mats
Floor mats in your foyer not only serve to avoid dirt, they also shape the first impressions of your customers and employees. Thanks to the quality materials they're made from, our mats also contribute to occupational safety. Our holistic approach includes the collection, cleaning, and delivery of the mats. By the way: In many cases, the mats are cleaned with recycled water, which we can use several times in our own laundries.
The service cycle is our core
Circularity and the sharing economy have always been the guiding principles of our business. CWS utilises the advantages of the rental service. In cooperation with us, you decide what you need and select the appropriate products and services. From then on you will receive regular deliveries. For your rented workwear or towel rolls, for example, this means that everything comes back to you clean, in great condition, and ready to wear. We also repair them wherever necessary.
Hygienic reprocessing is equally important as ensuring the longest possible service life of the products, which is supported by our resource-saving service cycle.
