FILK will operate in the future under the name FILK Freiberg Institute gGmbH
With the decision of our shareholder and the entry in the commercial register, the change of name for our institute has been formally completed. In future, our institute will operate under the name:
FILK Freiberg Institute gGmbH.
Due to the enormous transformation and diversification of the institute's research focus over the past 20 years, the two name-giving material groups, leather and plastic sheeting, had become too "narrow" and no longer reflected the extensive scientific content.
In the future, leather and coated textiles will continue to play an important role in the portfolio, but in the meantime the scientists are just as intensively involved with other materials, technologies and characterisation methods, for example for biomaterials or medical products. With the new name, the institute also acknowledges its location in Freiberg.
However, this does not change anything for the partners of our institute. Contracts and agreements, terms of sale and delivery as well as our general terms and conditions remain unaffected by the change of name. We look forward to continued successful cooperation!
