Quality based on tradition
The name Halbmond has become synonymous with quality based on long-standing traditions for about 140 years. What began in 1880 with the establishment of a weaving mill for Axminster carpets in Oelsnitz is now an efficient, innovative and international company. This course was charted from the outset. The founders, Koch and te Kock, demonstrated far-sightedness and courage when they opted to set up their business in the idyllic and prospering Vogtland region. Even at that time, they were aware of the power inherent in a clear commitment to their home region and pressing ahead with innovations for the international market. None of this has changed, even now. And we are proud that this tradition continues to form the basis for our quality-conscious manner of conducting business.
Let us give you a glimpse of our philosophy, corporate awareness and the variety of our products and services. There are many different aspects that join forces here. Each of them is very important, but the high standards represented by Halbmond only comes about when these elements are combined. What we stand for: traditional values, rich experiences, the latest technology, creative development, social responsibility, and an understanding of cultures, sustainable quality, reliability and the ability to satisfy the most individual demands. The "Made in Germany" quality seal is both a responsibility and an honour for us at the same time.
Sustainability "Made in Germany"
Despite heavy use a good carpet stays durable for many years but only when it is a product of the highest quality. The same high quality is deeply rooted in the thinking and actions of all the employees at the Halbmond carpet factory – and this quality also describes our products and services. This philosophy follows simple, clear and impressive logic, which found its way into the company in our founders’ day. The quality that we employ today forms the basis for the satisfaction that our customers will sense tomorrow. Satisfied customers are the only guarantee for future orders – which also
means healthy economic developments at Halbmond carpet works and therefore secures jobs. Our understanding of quality therefore has a very broad footing and is geared towards the long term. It combines technical, social, ecological and economic issues. It can be measured by embracing traditional values and innovative challenges, intercultural standards and down-to-earth brands: made in Germany, or if you want to be absolutely precise – Made in Oelsnitz.
The central maxims of the Halbmond Teppichwerke have always included readiness for innovation and technological development. Already in 1968, a 1-meter-spray pressure system was commissioned in Oelsnitz whose patent was sold to the US in 1971. Then, in 1974, there was the international premiere of the large-template-pressure-system at Halbmond. In 1994, after the re-privatisation, considerable investment was made for an even more efficient production by installing the first ChromoJet-spray pressure system. This computer-controlled machine enables printing individual designs on carpets in a wide variety of colours. Since then, Halbmond has continuously invested in state-of-the-art technology in order to meet the customers’ highest expectations.
In 2008, a ChromoJet-printing machine with the latest generation of nozzles was commissioned. At this time, this had been the most modern system world-wide. The ChromoJet-system achieves an even more detailed print image and enables the use of up to 24 colours per design. In 2012, Halbmond invested in a 2-meter-Chromojet-system in order to be able to react to customer specifications in an even more flexible way and to print on materials other than carpet, too. Since 2019 we have the possibility to produce designs in an endless variety with only four primary colours in a digital process through our 2-meter wide colaris-printer. This digital printing technology is the optimal solution to meet individual requests even when it comes to minimum quantities.
