Benninger’s 1,000th automation solution installed

Benninger, a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech machines and systems for textile finishing and the production of tyre cord, has installed its 1,000th automation solution at Getzner Textil, an Austria based traditional textiles company.

Getzner Textil, in Bludenz, Austria, is known for its high-quality fabrics for a wide variety of applications. In the sustainable production of textiles, Getzner has for many years relied on the innovative process and system solutions of the Benninger Group, with its headquarter in Uzwil, Switzerland.

As part of the current project of the two longstanding partner companies, the Benninger-Pad-Dry Hotflue was equipped with the 1,000th automation solution from Benninger Automation, Zell, Germany.

This milestone was taken by Beat Meienberger, CEO of Benninger AG, as an opportunity to thank Getzner for the long-standing, good business relationship and to hand over a voucher for spare parts worth EUR 10,000 to the management of Getzner Textil. The company says it is looking forward to many more years of good partnership and interesting, new projects with Getzner Textil AG.

The Swiss company Benninger has been the textiles industry’s partner for more than 150 years, with global branches and service representatives. Benninger develops and manufactures textile finishing and cord production ranges, as well as providing complete system solutions.
