Created in 2014 BC-TEX is a subsidiary of one of the world's most experienced and specialized recycling companies.
Mr. Zhang established our holding company, Fujian Baichuan Recycling Science & Technology Co. in 2004. A true pioneer, he saw early on the opportunity in waste plastic and made it his life's work to create solutions for this growing problem.
Today the company is a high-tech business specializing in recycling PET bottles into heavy-duty fabrics for luggage lining, umbrella cloth, tablecloth and tents for companies like Ikea and Samsonite. With over 15 years experience in recycling and the recent spike in demand for his recycled products, the company has rapidly become a market leader.
Over the years the company has invested in new technologies and improved production processes. Because of this, yarns and fabrics have improved dramatically. Softer and more technical, it became possible to produce high quality, durable products that meet apparel industry standards. So, to capitalize on this, BC-TEX was born and companies like Adidas soon stepped in.
Now BC-TEX serves fashion brands and retailers across the globe with durable soft yarns and beautiful fabrics for garments, backpacks, and sneakers. While our holding company focuses on the outdoor, luggage and furniture industry with heavy-duty fabrics, our focus is purely on providing sustainable yarns and fabrics specifically designed for the apparel industry.
Take the pressure off our natural world, with smart, sustainable pro-active solutions designed for the apparel industry.
Working closely with our factory and research & development team, BC-TEX is managed by experienced professionals who have a deep understanding of the production process and provide the best sustainable solutions in the industry. Fluent in English, we have experience working with global companies and put a strong focus on providing world-class service.
