Trützschler Group shows closer proximity to customers
Erko Truetzschler GmbH in Duelmen, Germany was acquired by the Truetzschler group in April 2009. The acquisition is being utilized as an opportunity to restructure the Trützschler group into three business units.
This will enable Trützschler to focus even more clearly on customers' needs and to optimize the service it offers. The names of the three units express their activities:
This unit includes the headquarters in Moenchengladbach as well as the plants of American Truetzschler in the USA, TRUMAC in India, TRUINCO in Brazil and TTMS in China. The product range covers all of the equipment needed for fibre preparation in spinning mills, from the blow room to cards and draw frames, even combing machines.
This new unit is composed of the two German companies Fleissner in Egelsbach (Managing Directors Hans-Georg Buckel and Dr. Dieter Zenker), and Erko Truetzschler in Duelmen (Managing Director Erwin Kock and Director Stefan Flöth), as well as American Truetzschler in the USA. The business unit TRUETZSCHLER NONWOVENS has made it its mission to produce and sell cutting edge technology at reasonable prices. The company provides complete systems and solutions, not only contributing technologies.
The product range includes complete staple fiber preparation and web formation with roller cards or aerodynamic web formers. Crosslappers and web drafters enable the required web weights and widths to be produced. TRUETZSCHLER NONWOVENS is the only company that can offer all web bonding methods. Whether you are looking for web needling, spunlacing, chemical or thermal bonding, the experts at TRUETZSCHLER NONWOVENS have the right solution for every application. Different finishing technologies and equipment to produce hygiene articles round off the range of products.
Fleissner additionally supplies all machinery and equipment needed to produce PES staple fibers, an essential raw material for nonwoven products. That means, everything from the polyester chip to the finished nonwoven product from one source.
Another benefit is that customer service is always near by the Truetzschler group manufacturing plants in the USA, Brazil, India and China as well as the service points in Turkey, Uzbekistan, Mexico, Italy and Spain.
Close cooperation between Fleissner and Erko makes TRUETZSCHLER NONWOVENS a strong partner for the nonwoven industry. The concentration on joint development for nonwoven products is a good example. Extensive laboratories are available at the two customer service centers in Egelsbach and Duelmen for the entire range of technology.
One clear expression of the improvement in customer service offered by TRUETZSCHLER NONWOVENS is the successful merging of the Fleissner and ERKO sales teams under the leadership of Marc Wolpers.
TRUETZSCHLER CARD CLOTHING (TCC)
TRUETZSCHLER CARD CLOTHING manufactures and sells the entire range of card and roller card clothings. Metallic wires for openers or opening rollers for OE spinning machines and service machines round off the program. TRUETZSCHLER CARD CLOTHING is headquartered in Neubulach, southern Germany. TCC also uses plants in Brazil and India to stay close to the customers. TCC's recipe for success is the close cooperation with the developers of cards and roller cards. Development of the machines and clothings has been coordinated for several years. One-stop service is another distinct advantage enjoyed by TCC customers.
Group- and Business Unit Management
The Truetzschler management team, comprising two Managing Partners Heinrich Truetzschler and Dr. Michael Schuerenkraemer as well as the Managing Directors Dr. Dirk Burger (CEO) and Andreas Ebenhoeh, is responsible for managing the group as well as the individual units. This guarantees that the proven traditions of the family companies will continue into the future, successfully meeting the customers' needs in all three business units.
