In its latest sustainability report for 2013, Switzerland based textile machinery manufacturer Rieter said it succeeded in further optimizing the energy efficiency of its products compared to 2012.

The textile machinery producer said it was able to reduce total energy consumption relative to corporate output or sales by 15% from its energy-saving program at its Chinese and Indian plants.

This efficiency was made possible, Rieter added, despite expansion and modernization of its plants in China and India, which hiked energy consumption in absolute terms by 2,000 MWh to 133,000 MWh.

At the same time, Rieter has also been able to reduce energy usage in its latest R 60 rotor spinning machine model, which consumes 5% less energy than the earlier model.

Rieter has also invested in providing vocational training keeping in mind succession and career planning of its employees.

The roots of Rieter’s rich apprenticeship training tradition reach back as far as 1906. Rieter claims till date 4,000 apprentices have been trained at the Rieter plant in Winterthur alone.

For the past five years Rieter informs, it has also been engaged in training future generations of personnel in India and China in addition to its vocational training programs in Europe.

Rieter is a supplier of textile machinery and components used in short staple fiber spinning. With 18 manufacturing locations in ten countries, it employs a global workforce of around 4,800 employees.

In the first half of 2014, sales at Rieter rose 9% year-on-year to CHF 522.1 million, while EBITDA grew to CHF 48.4 million from CHF 34.3 million in first half of 2013. (AR)
