Swiss Textile Machinery Makes Its Mark

0, 0

Years ago, most enterprises were family businesses, often built on the founders’ invention of a technology or machine which was then further developed and improved over generations. Many Swiss textile machinery companies have a history dating back more than a century – and some are still family-owned. The tradition of innovation evolved naturally over decades for the Swiss textile machinery manufacturers, component producers and service providers. Inventing is still a way of life today, and the fruits of this philosophy will again be demonstrated at ITMA Asia + CITME 2018, where 30 members will be exhibiting.

The sheer power of Swiss innovation in textile technology is founded on a combined total of 3968 years of experience by these companies. It’s a continuous commitment to in-depth R&D over those years, equating to the time-span between the world’s first multicolored fabrics in ancient Egypt around 2000 BC and the modern age of advanced technical textiles. From pyramids to high-tech fabrics integrated in walls, ceilings and flooring.

Building customer trust

Across the generations of Swiss textile machinery firms, expertise has been handed down – along with the ‘inventor gene’. Driving it all, however, has been a recognition that customer requirements are the priority. Meeting those needs through innovative solutions is the real goal. “The years of experience and heritage of innovation definitely bring added value for our customers, who trust Swiss Textile Machinery members to help them build their own business success,” says Cornelia Buchwalder, Secretary General of the association.

Some of the standards set by the Swiss textile machinery companies have been established for decades – as readers might know from textbooks during their studies. As ‘Industry 4.0’ progresses, even more new technologies and standards can be expected. “I am confident that Swiss Textile Machinery members will continue to introduce innovations which will influence the worldwide textile industry in future – and I look forward with great anticipation to ITMA 2019 in Barcelona,” says Buchwalder.
