The Picanol Group, specialised in the development, production and sale of weaving machines engineered casting solutions and custom-made controllers, has announced that it is looking to expand its production capacity in Ypres, Belgium, in order to meet worldwide demand for Picanol looms.
 
Owing to the increasing demand for quality and technology and the favourable exchange rate of the euro, Picanol’s order book is well-filled for the second half of 2015, the company said in a media statement.
 
To meet the current production peak, the Picanol Group is now actively recruiting 75 temporary workers for its Ypres production plant, with profiles being sought including assembly workers, production workers and CNC operators. In addition, the group is looking to fill approximately 25 vacancies in Ypres, including loom technicians, field technicians, process engineers, quality engineers and sales managers.
 
The Picanol Group currently has 1,303 employees in Ypres. 
 
In 2014, the Picanol Group realised a consolidated turnover of €418.2 million. For the first half of 2015, Picanol Group is expecting an increase in turnover. (RKS)
