Who we are

The 20.000 square meter down and feahtersproduction facility, Peter Kohl KGOur production facility processes down and feathers in Floersheim near Frankfurt Main, Germany. We host a modern, environmental-friendly “top-of-the-art” factory on 20.000 square meter.

We possess 4 fully automatic LORCH washing lines, 5 conventional LORCH sorting machines as well as the largest 4-chamber sorting machine in Europe.

A large raw-material inventory gives the company the possibility to offer a full range of material, from washed small feathers for cushions to 95% “high-down” for top-range comforters, sleeping bags and down-clothing.

With good connections and part ownership in collecting plants, farms and slaughterhouses all over Central- and East-Europe, the company can secure a steady, regular flow of down and feathers.

Situated in the centre of Europe, the company has an ideal location for importing raw-material from all over Europe as well as exporting “ready-to-fill” material world-wide.

Responsible Down Standard Certified

Responsible Down Standard Certified

The Responsible Down Standard ensures that down and feathers come from ducks and geese that have been treated well. This means enabling them to live healthy lives, express innate behaviors, and not suffer from pain, fear or distress. The standard also follows the chain of custody from farm to product, so consumers can be confident that the down and feathers in the products they choose are truly RDS.

Sustainable management – making the use of goods traceable, this is the maxim of VDFI. The members condemn any kind of down and feather production from living animals which infringe the European law and commit themselves not to obtain filling material deriving from tortured animals. This commitment is also included as additional part of the members’ sales contracts and general terms and conditions.

Peter Kohl Nachfolger Franz Kohl KG – your global partner

Located right in the centre of Europe, near a container-port (for feeding to Hamburg, Antwerp or Rotterdam), the main East-West and North-South German “Autobahn” just minutes away and Frankfurt International Airport less than 10 minutes away, we have the perfect location for distributing our down material world-wide.
With our 30 metres of loading- and unloading bays, we can handle up to 4 containers and trucks at one time.

For conventional loading of loose sacks on trucks, we can reach most European destinations within 12 hours, enabling our customers to order material “just-in-time”.

In addition to containerisation of high-quality washed down (700 – 3500 kg. / container depending on quality), our press-bales for original material are designed for optimal utilisation of high-cube containers, loading upto 20 tons.

Lately, more and more customers in USA and Asia have started to order high-quality down-material by air. Our specially designed air-freight bales, measuring 0,9 x 0,9 x 1,8 m, can nicely pack 200 kg. of high down, and the additional freight-cost compared to container-freight amounts to an average of only € 4,00/kg.

With direct cargo-flights from Frankfurt to most international destinations, the transit-time is only 2-3 days. For customers having their own steamer and “power-up” facilities, this is an ideal way to reduce inventory, too.
