The Oerlikon Group is one of the most innovative and research-intensive industrial groups in the world. Six of the company's business units are active in machine and plant engineering: textile machines, thin-film coating, production plants for thin-film silicon solar modules, vacuum systems, drive systems and "Advanced Technology".

The leading technology solutions the Oerlikon Group provides and enable its customers to achieve decisive advantages with end users - both industrial and commercial customers as well as private end consumers. 60 percent of all twines used in industrially manufactured rugs are produced on textile machines from Oerlikon.

This type of cutting-edge technology is no accident. Oerlikon invests around CHF 250 million every year in R&D and has nearly 1,500 highly-qualified developers and scientists around the world working on the innovations of tomorrow. In 2008, more than 16,000 employees at 158 sites in 37 countries generated sales of CHF 4.8 billion.

The business units of Oerlikon Textile are the market leaders in virtually every technology area. With their innovations, they are continuously setting new standards for the global textile production.

They provide comprehensive overall solutions in the sector of textile machinery and plant manufacture: From the plant design for the production of man-made and nonwoven fibres up to facilities for ring spinning, rotor spinning, winding, twisting or embroidery, they cover the entire value added chain in the textile sector.

To get a better idea of the research activities and any new technology innovation in the making and also to understand its focus markets of the future, once the recessionary trends roll back, we spoke exclusively to Mr André Wissenberg, Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications of the Oerlikon Group.

Mr Wissenberg said, “We will spend 100 million Swiss francs (CHF) for the whole Oerlikon group in 2009, 40 million CHF of which will be invested in Oerlikon Textile innovations. ITMA ASIA will be held next year in Shanghai and we will be there with some revolutionary innovations as in the past”.

“As you may be aware, in the last two years, we launched the POY-Spinning system WINGS of Oerlikon Barmag, winding machine Autoconer 5 with Prezi FX of Oerlikon Schlafhorst and the BCY-Yarn machine Sytec One of Oerlikon Neumag and these products had an excellent market introduction under strong economical circumstances, he added by saying.

“But, I am not in a position to speak about our future innovations in detail, as, if I would, it would create a surprise for the market and textile industry in particular”, he concluded by saying.

The market has started providing positive signs and experts also predict a revival by 2010, and asked him to comment on which regions or countries according to him would lead in the positive upturn and as too which regions will be of main focus to Oerlikon from business perspective.
