A NEW DYNAMIC THROUGH A NEW IDENTITY
Editorial by T. Mosa, CEO of OTEGO
Since early 2020, the company has left Glen Raven / Dickson Group to become independent. This autonomy has allowed us to focus our strategy on innovation and international expansion through a responsible and sustainable company.
In order to achieve these strategic goals, we assembled within OTEGO a team of collaborators whom are passionate about their job and committed to defend the interest of our clients with a strong concern: how to improve the productivity and contribute to the business development of our users ?
The strength of our company is its ability to quickly respond to our clients thanks to our offices in Asia, America, and EMEAI. At OTEGO, we speak more than 13 languages such as: English, German, Mandarin, Japanese, French, Spanish, Portuguese, etc. We stay close to our customers to understand their needs and to provide customized solutions.
OTEGO has a world leading position on the technical textile applied to industry. Our expertise is nowadays largely recognized by our clients and we are often consulted for our opinion on manufacturing issues involving functional fabrics.
OTEGO symbolizes our new identity, centered on our will to contribute into protecting people and their equipment across all our industrial segments worldwide.
