“Due to the working environment and the altitude up to over 3,000 m above sea level, our team is subject to changing temperature and weather influences. That is why we feel obliged to provide appropriately functional clothing. With polychromelab we have found a partner whose products meet our high quality standards. At the same time, the company also lives values such as regionality, sustainability and the spirit of development, which are central leitmotifs for us, "says Werner Hanselitsch, our managing director of the Obergurgl lift company, very satisfied.
Further advantages for employees: The waterproof, breathable and robust work clothing can be used all year round thanks to ingenious thermoregulation. Due to the elasticity and lightness of the material arrangement, it is extremely comfortable to wear even during demanding work assignments.
For Werner Hanselitsch, investing in such high-quality outfits represents an appreciation for his own team:
“Our employees have to do their daily tasks in all weathers. That is why it is important to us that you can do this under the best possible conditions. "
