German company Huesker, which specialises in geosynthetics for the construction industry and textiles for industrial and agricultural applications, is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. The business concept of the classical cotton weaving mill was originally founded by H & J Huesker & Co in December 1861. In 2010, the International Geosynthetics Society committee presented Huesker with the IGS Award for the development of high-strength geosynthetic reinforcements from innovative raw materials.
