Profile & philosophy

LINEAR means ”straight“ and stands for

  • Fair communication
  • High quality standards
  • Transparency and sustainability
  • Specialist expertise
  • Reliable partners
  • Satisfied customers

Linear GmbH is a production and consulting company for the clothing industry, headquartered in Bremen. It was founded in 2001 by its owner and Managing Director, Christiane Kückelmann.

The production of textiles is extremely complex. Producing garments often involves various parties and production sites. Thanks to our technical know-how, communication skills and intercultural expertise, Linear bridges the gap between the contracting party and production.

To achieve this, we are part of a global, interdisciplinary network. We aim to find constructive solutions on site, and therefore to create high-quality products under fair conditions.

”With my company, I have worked on various projects at international level for many years now. By listening carefully to all those involved, solutions can be developed together, and I can communicate the customers’ specific requirements in a way that ensures they are successfully and sustainably implemented in the production process.“
