Picanol India exhibited for the fourth time at the bi-annual Techtextil-trade fair, which is the leading international trade fair for Technical Textiles, and the world’s most important centralised marketing and sourcing platform for users and manufacturers of technical textiles.
The stall at Techtextil was one of the busiest and P Kasiviswanathan, India Head of Picanol had a hectic schedule on all the three days of the exhibition. He expressed optimism on the Indian market and said that the proof is already there since Picanol has been reaping a rich harvest of orders in the country in the past decade since its set-up in India.
As a global leader in the industry of weaving machines, Picanol enjoys growing success in the market for technical textiles, offering technical weavers highly customised solutions for very specific applications, based on machine platforms that are also applied in mainstream applications. As a result, their technical customers enjoy state of the art technology and performance, combined with the evident advantages the leading position offers them: from large R&D resources to streamlined high-quality production and assembly processes and a worldwide sales and services network.
Picanol has been active in India since 1956 and at the end of 2007, Picanol India was founded. So later this year, Picanol India will be celebrating its 10th anniversary of operations in India.
Picanol India is headquartered in New Delhi, with regional offices in Mumbai and Coimbatore and represented by people located in some of the key textile manufacturing regions like Ludhiana, Bhilwara, Ahmedabad, Surat and Kolhapur, effectively covering the Indian continent with a state-of-the-art sales and service organisation, featuring more than 40 staff members.
