The European Textile Services Association 1994-2014
For 20 years, ETSA has represented the industry-leading textile service companies, suppliers of garments, detergents and machinery and national associations across Europe.
The textile services industry supplies timely and cost effective textiles, usually on a rental basis, to an extensive range of professional end-users in a wide variety of industries.
