Centexbel: a centre of expertise at the service of the textile industry

The Centexbel technological, innovatian and environmental consulants of the scientific and technical centre of the Belgian textile industry will quickly give a conclusive answer to all questions of our industrial partners.


Centexbel puts several semi-industrial platforms at the disposal of the industry to perform test runs or very small production runs and for product development purposes, under the supervision and guidance of our experts.

We also organise seminars, information sessions and congresses on a very regular basis about all aspects of product development, new and sustainable production processes, energy and environment... at a very reasonable price, all the more so since Centexbel is a recognized service and training provider.

The dissemination of information is also guaranteed by:

  • the publication of several newsletters
  • standardisation activities: as sectoral operator of all textile related standards, Centexbel is the spokesperson of the Belgian textile industry in the European and international standardisation committees (CEN & ISO)
  • patents and intellectual property rights (IPR): our patent cell welcomes the industry and all its questions related to patents and IPR

Finally, several Centexbel collaborators audit quality, environmental and safety systems and will scan the innovation capacity of companies.
