About us

We buy, sort, pack and export 
used textiles worldwide

Gebotex was founded in 1978 and is currently the oldest sorting operation within the Boer Groep Holland. We are situated at the Kilkade in Dordrecht and our core activities consist of buying, sorting, packing and exporting used textiles worldwide.  

Gebotex is a TÜV-certified sorting company. Sorting is an intensive and meticulous process and we operate fully in accordance with the benchmarks set out in the Beoordelingsgrondslag Gecertificeerd Sorteerproces (Certified Sorting Process Evaluation Basis). The used textiles are bought by the kilogram from a range of European collection companies who often work with charities, and are delivered to Gebotex by lorry or wagon. 

The textiles are sorted according to condition and material over several stages in the production hall. The sorted products are packed, depending on their quality, in plastic bags, big bags or compressed into bales. They are then exported worldwide.
