Alpha Shirts

Alpha Shirts
For now 20 years we are a reliable partner for textile finishing. We offer high quality textile printing in Mannheim for handcraft and industry as well as clubs and private events.



Eismanufaktur Mannheim
For almost thirty years now, Dario Fontanella is devoted to continue his family tradition with heart and soul and Italian passion: ice cream.With more than 200 different flavors of ice cream the customer´s decision at the ice cream counter is not always the easiest. All ingredients are natural products, the fruits are delivered fresh every day and everything is grown in the country and the region, where it grows and matures best. Lemons, oranges and pistachios from Sicily, saffron from Iran, hazelnuts from Piedmont, from France comes the Valrhona-chocolate, and milk and cream Fontanella draws from the Bavarian Berchtesgaden.



Precious nature for precious lives
The name Pfanner stands for one family, one company, one brand and one philosophy: to do our utmost to produce quality products from nature's gifts. Our philosophy centres around people and their needs; in our case these consist of taste, enjoyment, health and refreshment. As a result, we apply rigid quality standards to every step in the production process and enforce these through a constant system of quality assurance and monitoring. This means we always exercise extreme care, from selecting and processing choice fruit to filling or bottling the finished product. Innovation, further development and continual improvement - both in the form of new products and new experiences of enjoyment as well as an enormous range of enhancements - are, we feel, the expression of a lively managed brand. This approach, we feel, has proved its value: in the course of 150 years, Pfanner has won over the trust of millions of consumers.


Die perfekte Eintrittskontrolle
For more than 20 years, Kontrollarmband has been the specialist in the field of identification and labeling wristbands. Not only traditional Control Bracelets made of vinyl or textile but also SecurBands made of Tyvek® make for a vast range of applications.

To round off the program, Kontrollarmband also offers lanyards, key holders, document holders, and rain ponchos.
