Picanol in China
As one of the world’s leading weaving machine manufacturers, Picanol has always had a very close relationship with the Chinese textile industry. Picanol sent its first pioneers to explore the possibilities in the Far East, already in the early 1950s. Picanol took part in one of the first international exhibitions held in Beijing.

The growing installed base of Picanol machines in China, as well as the increasing demand for a higher level of service and support resulted in the establishment of the Picanol Service Centre, which was set up in Shanghai in 1987. The next step, in 1994, was the start of PST, Picanol Suzhou Textile Machinery Works, being Picanol’s first production line outside Belgium. The technology and organisation were based entirely on the assembly concept and quality standards applied at the company’s headquarters in Ieper.

Today PST houses a complete production unit with assembly lines, a mechatronics division, and a sales, service and spare parts organisation. The the Chinese management, engineers and technicians have been trained in Belgium.
