Textiles are as diverse and manifold as life itself and our world. We can find them in all possible areas – in the air, on- and offshore. The range we can find them in comprises applications such as fashion, sports and leisure. But we can also find them in home textiles, floorings, medical technology, automotive, air & space technology and in architecture.

It is this diversity of the textile world where Groz-Beckert is at home. Since 1852 this company has been manufacturing tools for the production of textiles. In total there are more than 70,000 articles in its portfolio no matter whether they are used for knitting, warping, weaving, felting, tufting or sewing. Groz-Beckert employs more than 8,000 people worldwide and is active in 150 markets. Sustainable proceedings is what the company feels very much obliged to. On its way to become a full system supplier Groz-Beckert will grow its range of products along the textile value chain and will increasingly amend its program with integrated solutions as well as offer consulting and services. In all these matters Groz-Beckert continues its longstanding partnership with machine builders, users as well as with research and educational institutes of great renown. The Technology and Development Centre (TEZ) which Groz-Beckert has inaugurated in July 2010 at Albstadt, provides the best precondition and stimulates new impulses to shape the textile future together with all parties involved.
