Asahi Kasei’s Roica functional stretch yarn has announced that it has invested in a new warping machine for premium stretch warp knit innovations. The Roica marketing, communication, and innovations investment strategy, launched in 2016 has already created a new, positive and dynamic market growth position for the Roica premium stretch fibre.

Created by Asahi Kasei to meet modern consumer needs, these unique Roica advanced families of functional stretch yarns have become a key part of smart and responsible industry innovation, pioneering new and unique applications for fabric partners, according to an Asahi Kasei media statement.

These are headlined with Roica Eco-Smart family for a unique, engineered sustainable stretch solutions, and also with the unique colour function of Roica Colour Perfect family, all currently under production in the Asahi Kasei German plant.

After a strategic investment in 2017 for one of the latest warping machines at the European Roica production facility in Germany, Asahi Kasei saw a substantial uptake and growth in warp knit product innovations. Now the company has announced that it increased capacity by installing a further warping machine, due to be commissioned by end 2018.

With these investments over a short one and a half years period, Asahi Kasei has committed Roica production and its partners to further joint successes, substantially increasing its capacity and flexibility in active wear, fashion, swimwear, intimates and lace. And in line with the company’s commitment to the European market growth, further investments are scheduled to anticipate the markets and our partner’s future needs. (GK)
