We are always looking for motivated talents who want to achieve our visions and goals together with us. At our plant in Wilkau-Haßlau, we focus on innovation and sustainability to produce high-quality yarns for the textile industry. Shape the future of the textile industry with us!

I completed my training as a textile laboratory technician in 2018 and then got a job in quality assurance straight away. Starting my career at ZKS was the right decision for me.

Sören Jonas
Product development textile

At the age of 51, ZKS gave me the opportunity to completely reorient myself professionally. After more than six years, I can say that this gave me the chance to develop professionally. Today, I hold a management position as a forewoman. The change to ZKS was the right decision on my part. I'm looking forward to more great years in the ZKS team.
