Texprocess 2013 attracts new exhibitors

All the signs are that Texprocess, International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany from 10 to 13 June 2013, will be a success. With a year still to go before the doors open, over 50 percent of exhibition space has already been sold and numerous international companies from all parts of the textile-processing chain have signed up to take part for the first time.


The new Texprocess exhibitors include Cutter Audaces from Brazil, Zünd Systemtechnik from Switzerland and the Turkish finisher Malkan Makina.

Among the other international companies taking part will be Amann, Assyst, Brother, Coats, Dürkopp Adler, Expert Systemtechnik, Ferd. Schmetz, FK Group, Gütermann, Human Solutions, Hornung Indupress, Kaiser Lutra Textilmaschinen, Kansai, KSL, Lectra, Juki, Madeira, Martin Group, Morgan Tecnica, Sunstar, Topcut-Bullmer, Veit, Vibemac, X’ian Typical and ZSK.


For the first time, manufacturers of embroidery machines will exhibit in Hall 6.0, in the immediate vicinity of the finishing and textile logistics product groups. To make room for them, ‘Source it’ moves to Hall 5.0. Thus, international manufacturing companies can present their expertise in the heart of the sewing and joining technology segment, which stretches over Halls 5.0 and 5.1.

As before, trade visitors will find design, product development, cutting and IT in Hall 4.0, which adjoins Halls 3 and 4.1 where Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, will take place from 11 to 13 June 2013.

Combination of Texprocess and Techtextil

Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, says, “The good response to Texprocess 2013, especially from new customers, leaves no doubt that our concept fulfils the needs of the market. And this is reinforced by the fact that Texprocess is held concurrently with Techtextil, by the high level of international participation and by its high-tech-character.”

“The combination of Texprocess and Techtextil is unbeatable in the expanding technical-textiles market. Next year, the spotlight will be more than ever before on the synergistic effects created by the two fairs.” says Detlef Braun.
