Traditional craftmanship, ultramodern production facilities, the most experienced and innovative design minds of the industry as well as a grown know-how that is second to none: these are the pillars carrying Dimension-Polyant as a world market leader in the production of sailcloth. Our company produces leading fabrics and laminates in our own plants in Germany and the USA.

High-tech production

Every day, 10.000 and more meters of cloth are manufactured here, from which sailor dreams are made. They are produced in ideal climate conditions with specially developed machines. From the yarn to the final product, the entire manufacturing process is precisely monitored and consistantly controlled by our expert teams. Our experienced specialists and self-trained employees master the state-of-the-art production of a wide variety of cloths and laminates right through to the fine coating. The finished products are carefully packed in rolls from our production sites via satellite stores and sales offices all over the world. Thanks to our own plants in Kempen and the USA, as well as branches in France, Great Britain, Australia, Italy, Spain, Japan, New Zealand and Russia, we are in the great position to offer short delivery times, reliable services and individual customer care to our customers.

Development over years

Sailmakers around the world reward us with their trust and unique loyality. We are grateful to them and our team. Of course we will work hard to defend our leading position and continue to set the standards in the future. The family of our patents and trademarks continues to grow steadily. We have collected, protected and constantly developed our knowledge. We are proud of that. And that’s why, even in times when others opt for cheaper production facilities in the Far East, we remain true to our location in the Rhineland, where Napoleon Bonaparte once dressed himself in Krefeld’s weaving mills. Our company continues to reinterpret the tradition of internationally leading, woven and laminated cloth. It requires a sophisticated combination of craftsmanship and high-tech. The name Dimension-Polyant and its international network will remain standing for the highest quality.

Moving towards climate neutrality

As the market leader in sailcloth, we are aware of our responsibility and have set ourselves the goal of making the already eco-friendly sport of sailing even more eco-friendly in the long term. From 2021, the operations of Dimension-Polyant GmbH in Kempen will be completely CO2-neutral. All facility emissions have been systematically recorded within the framework of the energy management DIN ISO 50001 and have already been reduced by 85 percent through the use of green electricity and gas. All remaining emissions will be compensated in cooperation with ClimatePartner through the climate protection project “Plastic-free oceans“. We are also working on climate-neutral products and plan to further increase the use of recycled materials. Together with the Saxon Textile Research Institute (STFI), we are also researching into reuse processes for raw materials from used sails (recycling).
