Based on latest technologies presented at ITMA in Milan, Oerlikon’s Manmade Fibers Segment received a number of large orders totaling more than CHF 50 million for their Oerlikon Neumag staple fibre plant engineering technologies.
The orders were placed by key customers in Europe and Asia, outside China, for the production of staple fibres. These plant solutions will be delivered to customers over the next two years. The signing of the orders took place after ITMA, the largest textile industry trade fair, which was held in November in Milan, Italy, where Oerlikon presented its latest technologies, including those for staple fibre production.
Dr Brice Koch, CEO, Oerlikon Group: “We are pleased that key customers continue to place their trust in our technologies and have selected our latest Neumag solution to expand their staple fibre production. We will continue to develop competitive technologies in order to create more value for our customers, including those in growth markets.”
“The orders once again confirmed our position as a leader in staple fibre production technologies, and value that our customers see in our innovations and technologies,” commented Georg Stausberg, CEO, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Segment.
