18th October 2012, Winterthur
The Trützschler Group has expanded its manmade fibres product range by taking over the personnel and know-how of SwissTex Winterthur AG, the carpet and industrial yarns spinner.
“As competence centre, the newly founded Trützschler Switzerland AG in Winterthur combines decades of experience in development, design and construction of spinning systems for BCF yarns as well as technical yarns for industrial applications,” Trützschler said in a statement.
“Thus it becomes the point of contact in all aspects concerning these processes, from spare parts for several hundred installed spinning positions, upgrades, all the way to customer-specific systems. Based on technologies that have proven themselves time and again, the company will continue to set global standards in filament production with specific new and further developments.”
Switzerland AG, under new local management, is part of Trützschler Man-Made Fibers. Trützschler Man-Made Fibers also owns the Fleissner brand, the world market leader for PET fibre processing lines and specialised supplier of carbon fibre lines.
“With its exceptional service culture, strategy of quality and technology leadership, as well as professional process management, Trützschler Man-Made Fibers will advance and further develop the business established by SwissTex. The cooperation with customers and suppliers will not only be ensured but also consistently improved and expanded,” Trützschler said.
The Trützschler Group, founded in 1888, has approximately 2700 employees worldwide and is still family-owned. With nine production sites in Germany, USA, Brazil, India, China, and Switzerland, Trützschler is a market leader in the product areas of spinning, nonwovens, man-made fibres and card clothing.
The company has additional service centres in Turkey, Uzbekistan, Mexico, Italy and Spain.
