Ytres d.o.o

Just a few kilometres from the city of Varaždin is one of the company’s largest and most important factories. The plant is a centre of expertise and excellence for all aspects of the development and production of hosiery items, and deals with the sewing, dyeing, screen printing and packaging of products. The dyeing department is able to treat both natural and synthetic fibres, thanks to the outstanding adaptability and excellent quality of its modern machinery.

Our people

90% of the factory’s 870 employees are women, and only one is from outside Croatia, consistent with the company’s specific aim to offer local employees ample responsibility and opportunities for personal and professional growth, and with the principle of collaboration and investment in the local area. The opportunities for growth are also boosted by the free training the company offers all its employees, with the language courses proving particularly popular. Free transport services are guaranteed to reach the factory.

Attention to the community

calzedonia group traceability

The company’s decision to establish its own factories rather than using the services of third parties means that closer attention is paid to the quality of the work, and above all a commitment to the local community. For this reason, every year, Ytres donates off-cuts to local communities for the production of ornamental accessories and collaborates with schools in the area, encouraging students to get involved and offering them career opportunities. In addition, during 2020, Ytres worked with hospitals, the Red Cross and the fire-fighting services to produce and distribute more than 650,000 face masks donated to the local communities.

Respect for the environment

Given its importance, Ytres is often taken as a model in terms of innovation, offering an opportunity to guide the other factories on the road to compliance with the top environmental standards concerning production processes. The plant purchases 100% renewable energy, and thanks to this policy, approx. 2,400 tonnes of CO2e emissions were avoided in 2020. In 2019, more than € 8.5 million was invested for the installation of a purification plant that made it possible to increase the daily volume of purified water from 100 to 2,500 cubic metres. The sludge, the waste from the purified water, is also dried and re-used for the production of asphalt. Lastly, a method is being studied in the factory for the re-use of purified water in the dyeing processes, which would allow for a reduction in overall water consumption.

Danijela

My name is Danijela, and I’m a textile chemical technology engineer with over 15 years of experience in the production of various types of hosiery. I work as a production coordinator in Ytres. I come from a little village called Dalj, in the east of Croatia, and I now live in Varaždinske Toplice, near...

the factory. I spend most of my free time in the country with my family; we enjoy taking long walks or working in our vineyards, where we produce several kinds of wine.
When I finished my studies, I started looking for work immediately. At that time, work was being completed on the construction of Ytres, a plant that was to use brand-new technologies for dyeing yarns and fabrics. Considering what I’d studied, it sounded like a great opportunity for me, and my first position was indeed in the dyeing department.
Above all, what makes me proud to work in Ytres – in addition to the product quality – is the attention paid to employees’ health and environmental management.

My name is Božica. I was born in a small village near Varaždin, and I’m a textile engineer. When I got married, we moved to Gornje Lodanje, where I still live with my husband. I’ve been working in Ytres for 19 years, and I’m currently in charge of...

the heat setting and packaging department.
Technology, collaboration and organisation are three key elements in our work: without our advanced technologies, we couldn’t be so productive. Organisation is the key for each one of us to keep everything under control and effectively managed; and lastly, without collaboration, we wouldn’t be able to maintain the quality of our products, because only teamwork allows us to obtain our best results.
I’m very happy to work in an environment where everyone has the chance to put themselves to the test and show what they’re capable of, thus helping the company to grow. If I had to describe Ytres in just one word, it would be “quality” – referring to products, processes and the working environment.
