Toyota Industry Corporation, Japan, and Trützschler, Germany, had started a successful cooperation with a joint development of a new combing machine in 2010 – the TCO12 – which was exhibited at the ITMA Asia in Shanghai 2012 first time.

Since then, both companies have sold several hundred machines worldwide, including the newly developed Super Lap TSL12. “The installations are running to the satisfaction of our customers,” the manufacturer reports.

This also includes HARA service and spare parts business, which will be handled by Truetzschler exclusively starting on 1 February 2018.

“After about five years of successful cooperation both companies Toyota and Truetzschler have now come to this new arrangement in order to strengthen their complementary partnership by focussing their individual efforts for further innovations and services to the markets,” the company reports.

With about 3000 employees, Trützschler is one of the leading textile machinery manufacturers. Trützschler specialises in machines, installations and accessories for spinning preparation, the nonwovens and man-made fibre industry.
