Oerlikon has received orders for manmade fibres production solutions from three of the world’s leading manmade fibres manufacturers. All three companies are based in China and have been key customers of Oerlikon. The orders are for Oerlikon Barmag’s world leading filament-spinning technology for the highly efficient production of polyester fibres.

The three projects have a total value of more than CHF 600 million (EUR 565 million). A very small proportion of these projects will be recognized in Oerlikon Group’s order intake in 2020, and the majority will be accounted for in 2021 and 2022. On-site delivery and installation of these systems is planned for the period from 2021 to early 2023.

The systems business in China remains largely unchanged despite the short-term interruption caused by the coronavirus epidemic following the Chinese New Year celebrations. Long-term project planning for major customers in the manmade fibres industry has resulted in new major orders being placed with Oerlikon Barmag. One of the three new orders, valued at more than CHF 300 million (€282 million), is the largest order ever received by Oerlikon Barmag, based in Remscheid, Germany, Oerlikon said in a press release.

The comprehensive manmade fibres technology solutions by Oerlikon are used along the entire value chain in polyester yarn manufacturing and contain cutting-edge automation and digitalisation technologies. Oerlikon’s innovative technologies will enable the three Chinese companies to increase their production capacities for polyester yarn and to remain competitive. Oerlikon Barmag will provide the entire system for WINGS POY and WINGS FDY, as well as the texturing machines from the eFK product family in phases over a period of slightly over two years.

“These three orders show that the Chinese textile industry continues to place its trust in the world market – and in Oerlikon. They make it clear that globally interconnected industries such as the textiles industry and business models like that employed by the manmade fibers segment are more robust than many people believe,” Roland Fischer, CEO of Oerlikon said.

“That these customers repeatedly select Oerlikon is primarily linked to our innovative technologies, but also due to the fact that we have been handling these extensive projects flexibly and reliably for decades and also mastering challenges that, like today, arise from global epidemics causing temporarily interruptions for production sites and logistics,” Georg Stausberg, CEO of Oerlikon’s manmade fibres segment said.
