Picanol at two important exhibitions
Picanol not only promoted its rapier and airjet weaving machines at Techtextil 2019, but also the extensive range of services and support that it provides to its many customers from its 18,000 sq ft facility.
IGATEX Pakistan 2019 and Techtextil 2019 are the two important exhibitions in February in which Picanol exhibited its various machinery. Igatex took place from February 26– 28, 2019, in Karachi, and is the largest event of its kind in Pakistan, providing a great opportunity for Picanol to meet many customers over just a few days.
Picanol was present at the booth of Madhani Associates, which has represented Picanol in the Karachi region for the last five years. Meanwhile, for the Lahore region, Picanol is represented by Ghauri Enterprises.
These two agents and their respective organisations, along with the local Picanol Service team and all the Picanol colleagues who are involved with this
dynamic and challenging market on a daily basis, have ensured the long-standing presence and success of Picanol in Pakistan.
Picanol machines enable production in the four main Pakistani weaving segments: denim, sheeting, bottom weight and terry towel. Both the OMNIplus Summum airjet and OptiMax-i rapier have proven to be the most productive weaving machines. This is an impressive feat as weavers in Pakistan run the machines at maximum speeds - not a pick per minute less!
Picanol’s high levels of productivity, speed and efficiency are complemented with the lowest running costs, which come thanks to a unique approach to
energy saving: producing more meters of quality fabrics at the lowest cost possible. Ultimately, this makes a real difference and is the reason why the number of Picanol machines installed in Pakistan is continuously increasing. Picanol also offers an extensive range of services
and support including training, electronic repairs,
parts, weave-up upgrades, harness frames, machine installation and start-up, and textile set up and optimisation assistance.
At the Techtextil 2019 that took place from February 26 - 28, 2019, in Raleigh, North Carolina, Picanol was present with an information booth (Booth 1636).
The history of Picanol is clearly intertwined with
that of the American textile industry. Picanol set up its own organisation - Picanol of America – on February 1, 1966. Since then, America has always proven to be a market of great strategic importance as Picanol has installed tens of thousands of weaving machines at American weaving mills. Over the years, the technical fabrics segment has become a very dominant area,
which makes Techtextil an important fair for Picanol.
Picanol not only promoted its rapier and airjet weaving machines at Techtextil 2019,
but also the extensive range of services and support that it provides to its many customers from its 18,000 sq ft facility: training, electronic repairs, new machines installation and start-up, textile technical support, spare parts, and weave-up upgrades are among the most critical services that the Picanol team discussed with visitors.
