Unprecedented times, unprecedented challenges
2020 was an eventful year with many new challenges. However, radical changes can also bring potential for renewal and further development. In this issue of our magazine, we will therefore focus on various sectors, companies and subject areas that have either changed successfully due to this year's developments or had already been well prepared for such a situation thanks to their concept.
One topic that played a major role throughout the year is personal protective equipment. In this newsletter, you will learn how the various types of masks differ and how they are categorized. With Evolution St. Louis, we will also introduce you to a company that specializes in local and flexible production and will familiarize you with the numerous functions of Groz-Beckert's optimized Sewing Customer Portal – because online shops and short supply chains have become even more important this year. Last but not least, the Tufting and Carding articles show that a focus on customer needs can lead to creative solutions.
We hope you enjoy reading this issue.
