BEJIMAC now part of VANDEWIELE
Vandewiele and Bejimac have announced an agreement on a future cooperation and integration of their product portfolio at ITMA 2019.
By acquiring a majority position in the Bejimac group, Vandewiele will now be able to offer an even bigger product portfolio to its customers and integrate them into its own offering.
Vandewiele marketing and communication coordinator, Kris Pools, says: “Bejimac will be a valued member of Vandewiele, consisting of several textile machine companies, all trendsetters in their field. Adding the Bejimac organisation to our group will provide benefits to many of our customers. We are very excited to welcome the Bejimac customers and employees to our organisation.”
Meanwhile, Luxembourg-based Bejimac – a specialist in textile finishing machines – is the result of over 100 years of experience and know-how gained in the textile finishing field. The company is dedicated to offering its customers reliable machines, which allow them to increase the quality, efficiency and finish of their products.
Bejimac machines are famous all over the world for their reliability and robust construction.
According to Bejimac’s business development manager, Jean-Loïc Paulus, the company’s customers will benefit from a wide range of integrated solutions courtesy of the Vandewiele acquisition.
In addition, Vandewiele is promoting its wide-ranging portfolio of textile machinery at ITMA 2019 and hasn’t ruled out more big announcements during the remainder of the exhibition. Pools says: “We imagine, build and integrate innovative textile systems for flooring qualities, home linen, fashion fabrics and technical textiles – and this for the complete cycle from granulate to carpet. By sharing inspiration and expertise with our customers worldwide, we shape the textile industry of the future by creating success for them all, from yarn to finished product.”
It was always anticipated that Industry 4.0 would be a leading topic at ITMA 2019. This has quickly come to fruition with a growing interest and realization that cyber-physical systems will significantly impact the textile industry. Vandewiele is already working towards Industry 4.0 and is demonstrating a wide range of new technologies throughout ITMA 2019. All Vandewiele technologies are now equipped for machine-to-machine interaction and learning, as part of the company’s comprehensive TEXconnect programme.
“Full integration and interconnection of all these systems is presenting the digital textile factory of the future”, Pools adds. “Our research and development department and test engineers are continuously developing new applications.”
