In 1940, Charles Heiman escaped war-torn Germany and the Dachau concentration camp for sanctuary in Cincinnati, where he created Standard Textile in his family’s third floor apartment. He grew the company by pursuing his vision of providing a better life for his family, his partners, and his customers, by offering only the highest quality textiles.

His son Paul grew the company into a major national healthcare textile player. Paul’s son Gary grew the company into an international, vertically-integrated, advanced manufacturing powerhouse in healthcare, hospitality, and interiors markets. That same expertise and quality has recently entered the home consumer market.

And now, Gary’s son Alex, is poised to oversee the next era of growth and advancement.

Nearly 80 years of growth, over 80 patents, and thousands of team members. All working together with one goal in mind: continuing to fulfill Charles’ original promise of providing a better life for people around the world.
