Picanol to display weaving machines at ITM Texpo Eurasia
May '13
Turkey is one of the world’s key textile markets. The country earns about 5.7% of its total foreign exchange through textile export and the textile industry realizes nearly 30% of the country’s total industrial output.

The Turkish textile industry is also the country’s largest industry in terms of employment – it currently employs more than 2 million people. It is obvious that the Turkish textile industry is of crucial importance to Picanol and that Picanol will be prominently present at the ITM show in Istanbul.

Picanol has been serving the Turkish textile industry for more than 50 years. In 1998, Picanol set up a Turkish subsidiary, in order to more actively support its local activities. Today Picanol is the leading provider of weaving machines in Turkey. At the ITM show, Picanol will present two of its most advanced rapier weaving machines.

Winners are the ones who get the most out of every single opportunity, who grasp every single chance. The ones who dare to reach out and seize the moment. Those who go for growth and act fast, with a long-term future in mind. So, are you a winner? Have you got the plans, the objectives, the talent and the stamina to make you a winner? Good. Because in that case, Picanol will be there for you. Meet us at ITM!
