Concept of Texprocess is spot on for Groz-Beckert

Messe Frankfurt will hold Texprocess, Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textiles and Flexible Materials, for the first time in Frankfurt am Main from 24 to 27 May 2011. Partnering

Messe Frankfurt in this new venture is the German Association VDMA Garment and Leather Technology. As an investment-goods fair for the textile and fashion sector, Texprocess will be the international meeting place for over 500 exhibitors and around 25,000 trade visitors.

We spoke about the new fair with Bodo Friederich, Head of Marketing and Sales at needle specialists Groz-Beckert.

“Mr. Friederich, what prompted Groz-Beckert's decision to exhibit at Texprocess?”
Bodo Friederich: “The sector needs a leading international trade fair where garment manufacturers and the textile-processing industry can get together with machinery and accessories manufacturers and their sales partners to discuss the latest innovations and developments in the market place. This event must be so international and attractive that textile manufacturers from all over the world are prepared to make the journey to Frankfurt despite having regional fairs in their vicinity. This is a great challenge for fair and exhibition organisers. However, the concept of Texprocess is spot on for us.

Messe Frankfurt has great international experience and expertise in the textile sector. The company is familiar with the market and the changes taking place in it, and attaches great importance to the needs of visitors. We are confident that Messe Frankfurt is a partner that will promote the international exchange of information at the fair.”

“What major challenges will the sector face over the coming years?”
Bodo Friederich: “On the one hand, new challenges are posed by the relocation of the sewing industry and the associated redistribution of tasks. Additionally, subjects such as quality planning and logistics are gaining in significance in the shoe and clothing sector. On the other hand, technical-textile processing companies are becoming in­creasingly important in Europe and North America.”

“Given these developments, what are your expectations for Texprocess 2011?”
Bodo Friederich: “We anticipate that Texprocess 2011 will be the international innovation forum of the sector and cover the entire value-added chain. At Texprocess 2011, specialists from all over the world will discuss subjects of topical interest, such as logistics and material flows, and prepare ideas for solutions to current problems.”

By being held parallel to Techtextil, Texprocess will be able to attract companies that process technical textiles and thus be a forum for an interdisciplinary exchange of information and experience. It will be of benefit to all participants when the processing expertise of garment and shoe manufacturers can be combined with the quality system of, for example, the automobile industry.”
