Benninger has acquired 100 per cent of LAB-PRO, with retroactive effect to January 1, 2020. Benninger is a manufacturer of technologically advanced textile finishing and tire cord machinery for the textile, tire, and conveyor belt manufacturing markets. LAB-PRO is a supplier of innovative over-all solutions in the discontinuous textile dyeing machine field.

Benninger offers complete solutions for all major textile finishing processes, with a special expertise in the field of continuous open width processing of woven, knitted and technical textiles with minimum resource consumption.

The jet dyeing machines and jiggers from LAB-PRO are known for having the lowest water and energy consumption and lowest fabric elongation compared to competitors’ machines.

The Benninger portfolio will be extended by technologically advanced discontinuous dyeing machines such as jet and jigger dyeing machines as well as beam dyeing and laboratory dyeing apparatus. Fully automatic chemical, salt, soda, or dye dosing systems, which ensure the highest accuracy and reproducibility, complete the portfolio, the company said in a media statement.

By combining the know-how and experience of both companies, Benninger becomes the leading system supplier in the field of continuous and now also discontinuous dyeing and finishing technology. By using Benninger’s worldwide sales, service, and production network, LAB-PRO will be able to increase its market presence. The integration of LAB-PRO’s experience in discontinuous dyeing technology leads to a further strengthening of Benninger as a total solution provider. With the leading products FabricMaster (Jet), JigMaster (Jigger), and BeamMaster (HT Beam dyeing), Benninger strengthens its strategy as a partner for all customers in the premium segment of the wet finishing industry. Thomas Widmer and Thomas Gerhard will continue to lead the company LAB-PRO as managing directors.
