Groz-Beckert at Egy Stitch & Tex 2014

18 Feb 2014

Albstadt/Cairo: Egy Stitch & Tex is held in Cairo (Egypt) from 27 February to 2 March 2014. The mobile exhibition takes place at a different location every year and focuses on machinery for textiles and apparel. Groz-Beckert presents its comprehensive service plan SEWING5 in hall 3, booth 3C1.

Today's dynamic markets require more than just "good" product quality. Globalization of the apparel and shoe industries represents a key challenge, and competition is growing more intense all the time. This is accompanied by the need for sustainable productivity and efficiency increases as well as the constant desire for newer and ever more elaborate collections and designs. A new service concept is what is required.

SEWING5 is the answer: It refers to the five Ss (Supply, Solutions, Service, Superiority and Sustainability), which collectively stand for Groz-Beckert's consistent customer focus and its service expertise. "Supply" means reliable delivery availability and logistics processes, which ensure delivery of the right quantity of needles at the right time and place. This is made possible thanks to Groz-Beckert's global distribution network and efficient business processes. Groz-Beckert supports its customers throughout the entire manufacturing process with "Solutions".

The aim is to solve or avoid sewing-related technical problems through advice on use and innovative solutions. An example of this is the newly developed needle SAN® 10 XS for special applications, which has an even thinner displacement cross-section at the eye. The needle enables the flawless processing of very fine and sensitive pieces. Clothes with perfect appearance and high wear comfort can be produced from fine knitted and woven fabrics by ensuring optimum protection of the material and making the smallest possible needle holes. "Service" means integrated support and customer focus.

The accompanying and subsequent services provided by Groz-Beckert bring out the full effects of its product range. Examples include user training, sales seminars and the speedy and uncomplicated processing of orders and returns. Certified top quality, specialist products and the application of modern technology are key factors in "Superiority". When it comes to quality, even the product packaging can make a real difference. The Groz-Beckert packaging enables needles to be transported and stored securely. The new packaging label also bears a data matrix code, which serves to verify its original product status.

"Sustainability" plays an important role at Groz-Beckert. This is evident both from our safe and environmentally friendly product manufacturing methods and sustainable packaging, and also from our certified quality, environmental and energy management. With the support of its customers, Groz-Beckert designs solutions that enable them to confront the challenges of the market. SEWING5 is a key factor in this achievement.
