Keeping Up To Date With The Textiles Industry

At the heart of the Xiros business strategy is the rapid development of innovative ideas into fully developed commercial products, so keeping up to date with the latest developments in production technology and materials is a vital component in this process. As part of our ongoing commitment to investigating these advances in materials and technology, our Textiles Design Team recently travelled to the International Textile Machinery Association exhibition in Barcelona – the world’s largest international textiles and garment technology exhibition, which features 1,700 exhibitors from over 46 countries. Over the five-day exhibition, the team investigated new weaving, knitting and braiding technologies, as well as machinery and equipment which could help us meet current and future projects. It was a fantastic exhibition, giving great insight into the entire textiles production chain from yarns to finishing, and the team returned with a lot of useful information and new industry contacts.
