Groz-Beckert receives environmental honours at ShanghaiTex 2011
Dec '10
Nowadays, textile manufacturers are interested to know and purchase energy-saving and environmental-friendly products. At textile machinery exhibitions in 2010, Groz-Beckert's litespeed needle became one of the focused products after it received a prestigious award in Germany in last April (2010).

Groz-Beckert is one of the key exhibitors of ShanghaiTex 2011 which will be held during Jun 14 –17, 2011 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, PR China. It is expected that Groz-Beckert's award-winning product and its latest innovations hit the market right and will become one of the focuses in Shanghaitex 2011.

Groz-Beckert describes that the litespeed needle is synonymous with precision and innovation in the best sense. "For the circular knitting machine, this means up to 20% lower temperature, less energy consumption, reduced oil requirement, minimized oil fogging and enormous carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction," the company said.

Tests found that if all relevant machines worldwide were equipped with litespeed needles, it would result in an annual CO2 reduction of over 457 million tonnes, according to Groz-Beckert.

The company was awarded the KYOCERA Environment Prize in 2010, which is one of the highest-value competitions for environmental protection in Germany stressing innovation, market potential, environmental relief and also transferability to other companies.
"Groz-Beckert is committed to assuming responsibility for conserving resources and preserving an intact environment, for present as well as future generations." Edelgard Keinath, Corporate Services, Public Relations & Advertising, said.

"The company operates with a sound quality management system according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and a comprehensive environmental management system in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14 001. Its products also fully conform to the RoHS and REACH standards. For the production of ecologically valuable textile applications, Groz-Beckert offers suitable precision component, systems and services.

“One of the latest projects implemented by Groz-Beckert is the textile-reinforced concrete bridge in Albstadt in the district of Lautlingen, Germany. This bridge is about to be opened for public use. More futuristic innovations will be made possible at the recently opened Technology and Development Centre at Groz-Beckert headquarters in Germany. Furthermore, products that are new to the market will be geared towards not only increased productivity but also energy saving." Ms. Keinath added.

In ShanghaiTex 2011, not only innovative products but also a series of environmental textile machineries and accessories will be found. Online registration is now open for visitors. Visitors can enter a lucky draw for the opportunity to win hotel accommodation. Details will be announced soon.
