Kobleder is a family-run producer of knitwear and knitted fabrics now in its third and fourth generation. We combine tradition and innovation, craftsmanship and technology to create the perfect synthesis.
Internationally active yet deeply rooted in our region, we create products that aspire to be among the best technical knitted fabrics in the world.
Alongside production and service, we initiate research and development projects and product developments with partners and research institutions. But never forget our roots. With the fashion labels »Kobleder seit 1927« and »Toni Kobleder«, we offer premium brands for knitwear.
At Kobleder, we are active in the following fields:
Production and manufacture of technical knitted fabrics
Continued processing and assembly of technical knitted fabrics in complete product solutions
Partner and initiator of research and development in the area of knitted spacer structures and innovative flat-knitted fabrics
Kobleder uses cutting-edge, computer-controlled knitting machines, and has the full range of specialist machinery required for producing knitwear. We currently employ around 50 people at our headquarters in the town of St Martin in northern Austria.
Ever since the company was founded in 1927, we have taken pride in our master craftsmanship and ambitious design. To this day, our home and our people are at the centre of what we do.
Sustainability is an important part of our company culture. This begins with the way our own knitting technology efficiently prevents waste. Almost 100% of our energy needs are covered independently by water, solar and wind energy. This also helps to secure jobs in the region.
At Kobleder, we show how it is possible to maintain a flow of knowledge across generations and expertise in terms of material and products in the region. This helps secure the future of production sites and creates a culture, design and craftsmanship legacy that is futureproof.
