History History

An innovative brand with a long tradition


When Jakob Eschbach began producing shaft suits and hoses in an old barn and dance hall in Essen Kupferdreh in 1956, no one could have foreseen that the initial idea and small beginnings would grow to become a leading company for protective clothing.


Just 9 years after its establishment, the company premises were already at their limit due to growth. In 1965, therefore, founder decided to relocate to a new site in Marsberg, Sauerland, where there was sufficient production and expansion capacity.


In 1984, the presence in the market was further expanded with the takeover of Isomat Schutzbekleidung GmbH in Osnabrück.


Today's company name Novotex-Isomat, is justified by the amalgamation of the two companies' premises in 1998.


Conversion of the company building


Today's success of NOVOTEX-ISOMAT is mainly based on excellent processing of only the best quality materials, flexibility when it comes to enquiries and the company's well-known full-service offering and its closeness to their customer. The balanced price-performance ratio also ensures great market penetration.

Making you, our current or future customer, successful with our products is our ongoing corporate goal, which we pursue anew every day.

We look forward to working with you.
