Gladbacher Spinnstoffindustrie Mühlen GmbH, in short GSM, with its main office in


Mönchengladbach in the German region of North Rhine-Westphalia, was founded in 1896 and, these days,


is one of the world's most important chemical fiber recycling companies. GSM provides high-quality


recycled fibers, as well as b-grade qualities and substandards for the


production of cotton and the non-woven fabrics industry, but also for the construction industry and


carpet manufacturing, among others. GSM sets environmental standards in the process.


The latest systems allow for an eco-friendly finishing and treatment of (wet) fiber residues.



The company’s customers benefit from non-toxic, hypoallergenic and skin-friendly products.

Despite the company’s medium-sized structure and it being known as a family business with strong


values, GSM is an internationally operating company. In addition to its domestic market of Germany,


GSM’s main sales markets are Western, Southern and Eastern Europe, India and Turkey.

As a modern and future-oriented company, GSM offers its customers and suppliers a fast and reliable


distribution process as well as the benefits of a well-known and successful ERP system (SAP).
