Rotex Fabrics grows production with Bruckner stenters
The South African company, Rotex Fabrics, which is a knitter, dyer, and finisher of high quality fabrics for fashion and sportswear, has announced that the company has managed to increase its production capacity with Bruckner stenters after a terrible fire. Bruckner is a leading producer of high-tech lines for the dry finishing of knitted and woven fabrics.

In October 2016, there was an unfortunate fire where the complete dye house and finishing departments were destroyed, but fortunately nobody was injured. After re-constructing the damaged buildings, the company started with the installation of the new machinery by the end of April 2017, with the last of the new machines being commissioned exactly one year to the day after the fire. Three months prior the fire, Rotex started their partnership with Brückner, and commissioned a new 8-chamber, thermal oil heated stenter to complement the two existing lines.

Martin Rohner, the technical director of the company said, “We were impressed with the new machine, as well as the service and back-up from Brückner, so much so, that when we had to replace the damaged machines, it was an easy decision to make, with the result that we installed two identical Brückner stenters. The new investment has enabled us not only to install the latest technology throughout our dyeing and finishing facility, but also to optimise the plant layout and grow our capacity to meet our customers’ growing need for high quality, fashion forward, quick response fabrics.”

Regina Brückner, owner of Brückner Textile Technologies said, “It was really a great pleasure for us to support Rotex as fast as possible after this terrible fire. We admired the energy and the strength of the whole company when they re-built the factory. The cooperation with this special and very expert customer was more than agreeable and we are proud that we could convince Rotex of the quality of our machines and of our service.” (GK)
