Groz-Beckert at the Garment Technology Expo 2014 

24.01.2014


Albstadt, Germany/New Dehli, India: The Garment Technology Expo (GTE) will be held from February 28 to March 3, 2014 in New Dehli. Groz-Beckert is located at Hall A, Booth 63. At GTE show Groz-Beckert is largely focussing on service and technical support (Sewing5) and puts up two sewing machines at the booth. Another top subject is the SAN 10 XS needle for ultra fine fabrics.


SEWING5 from Groz-Beckert stands for Supply, Solutions, Service, Superiority and Sustainability, which collectively stand for Groz-Beckerts consistent customer focus and service expertise. Today's dynamic markets demand more than “just” outstanding product quality but present challenges e.g. the increasingly intense competition pressure and the need for sustainable productivity and efficiency increase. Whatever the markets demand – Groz-Beckert is at hand to provide sound advice and support with SEWING5! Together with its customers Groz-Beckert will develop pioneering ideas and solutions to ensure not only top product quality but also your success and leadership in a toughly competitive market.

Groz-Beckert offers its services also on-site. There is for example a sewing expertise center in the Regional Office Gurgaon (Delhi area) which customers can visit and make use of the technical seminars and training on needle selection and application. This is an important part of the approach to the market.

The focus on the show is also on the special application needle SAN 10 XS for ultra fine fabrics as these are also slowly coming in. So far the usual SAN 10 range of needles was well received.

Delivery, cost and quality seem to be the three most important requirements in today’s market to survive and grow. So the industry needs to prepare itself accordingly, look for new technologies and upgrade its machinery which fulfills the new requirements. The spares and consumables for example needles are equally important as they directly influence the three requirements.

Training of manpower is also very important as the employees are the ones who are to make the machines run and produce efficiently. So knowledge about the working of machinery and parts as well as the possibilities is important because only then optimum results can be achieved.

Groz-Beckert is doing a lot on this globally through its Technology and Development Center (TEZ) and technical trainings and workshops at local level. The industry needs to develop processes to standardize systems and bring in efficiency with constant focus on improvement as only these things will bring the drive and keep the organization ready to take on new challenges coming from the market.
