"Our focus is for years already the development of lines which are energy efficient, re-source saving and optimally designed for our customers.
"Solely our productive and flexible manufacturing in Germany allows us to meet the high expectations of our customers and to supply our products rapidly and with consistently high quality" emphasizes Regina Brückner in her speech.
"In this context we developed a completely new and energy-efficient machine generation which we put now into operation with a celebration in our technology centre at our Leonberg site and which is available for test and development purposes."
Dr. Klaus Jansen, Managing Director of the German Board of Trustees for Textile Research (Forschungskuratorium für Textil) presented the visitors in an interesting address the many chances and possibilities of the textile world. Which changes have to be strived at and which products must be realized to be well prepared for the future?
And which fields of applications will exist in future for textiles, which materials will be replaced? Dr. Jansen showed numerous examples, reporting for example about adaptive sun protection with energy generation, construction materials made of renewable raw materials, textile substrates for bio mass growing, about energy storage in fibres and textiles and last but not least about the recycling of garments and the integration of function into fibres.
The guest of honours Günther Oettinger, CE Commissioner for Energy emphasized in his speech the importance and creativity of the German small and medium sized companies which provides for clearly more jobs than the big industry. Moreover he made clear that we will need in Germany also in future a manufacturing industry and that we should not transfer all production-related jobs abroad.
At the same time he showed a lot of understanding for the textile companies in Germany which brought in an action against the EEG (German Renewable Energy Act) contribution. It is unacceptable that companies do invest to reduce their own energy cost but have to pay therefore clearly more EEG contribution. Such companies have no possibility to plan and the jobs are in danger. In his opinion there are rightly doubts about the constitutionality of the EEG contribution.
Nevertheless he deems it important to continue in saving energy costs and he congratulated BRÜCKNER on the new successful machine concept which is an important support for the textile processing industry regarding the reduction of their energy consumption.
With the construction of its technology centre BRÜCKNER avows clearly to Germany as a location for industry and gives his employees but also his customers and partners certainty. Günther Oettinger empasized further that it is important for the German industry to have tradition-conscious family-owned enterprises and praised again the considerable investment at the company base in Leonberg.
