Baumhueter International – a clothing company with a long tradition
The base of today’s Baumhueter International GmbH was build in 1949, when Peter Kaspar Baumhüter – 3rd generation since the company was founded – established a cotton knitting company for the production of men underwear.
The company grew quickly and expanded by acquisitions like the “Trikotwarenfabrik Georg Fauser GmbH” (a specialist of fine ladies underwear) and the “Perlmut GmbH (a manufacturer of ladies full-fashioned stockings).
Due to massive changes at the side of the customers as well as of the manufacturers the Baumhueter Group had to close all German manufacturing-plants.
Since 1997 Baumhueter is specialised in the international sourcing of textiles which can be worn on the skin.
The headquarter in Rheda-Wiedenbrueck, Freigerichtstr. 10, contains the departments of sales, sourcing, quality management, design and sampling.

In recent years we have invested heavily in maintaining and improving our quality standard. Intense trainings of the personnel of our factories and agencies as well as comprehensive quality inspecions lead to a steady high standard of our quality.
We strictly check our products in accordance to AQL 2.5. Test methods, tolerances and testing intervals are laid down in our very detailed internal quality specifications.

This standard goes beyond the statutory requirements and those of some of our competitors. It offers the consumer maximum reassurance of products that are kind to the skin and avoidance of problematic material content.
Next to that we are a member of BSCI – the „Business Social Compliance Initiative“. This platform – which has been founded in 2002 by the FTA (Foreign Tade Association) – contributes significantly to the improvement of the working conditions and social standards in the production facilities. The real situation inside of the factories are systematically monitored by independent inspection-companies. Frequent trainings lead to a constant improvement.
