Dr. Norbert Klapper, Group CEO of Rieter spoke about the company's achievements in its 220 years of existence and its thrust on innovation led by three promising areas; Listen to the customer; make technology available and nurture innovation spirits.

Dr. Klapper further added that this is what makes Rieter an innovation leader in short staple spinning.

Mr. Peter Anderegg, a Swiss innovation expert, spoke on the small country's 'Innovation Power' and its global position in terms of innovation with future challenges and opportunities.
