Let’s go for another memorable year in
2019 was a challenging year for Picanol.
The uncertain macroeconomic climate resulted in a worldwide
slowdown in the machine market. Nevertheless, Picanol was still
able to perform fairly well despite these difficult conditions
and we are now starting to see the first signs of recovery in
the market. That is really positive!
On reflection, whilst 2019 was not easy,
we still managed to achieve a lot as a company. In June 2019, we
participated in the 18th edition of ITMA, which took place in
Barcelona. Our new OmniPlus-i airjet weaving machine got some
great feedback from all those present at the event and once
again Picanol excelled as a technology leader in the sectors of
airjet and rapier weaving machines.

Another positive note was our new campaign
– building on our Let’s grow together theme, some children
showed us what the future will look like in terms of behavior
and habits. This concept conveys how everyone at Picanol wants
to ensure our customers are fully prepared for the future.
And then we had
the big milestones: the 100,000th airjet weaving machine was
delivered and we also produced the 30,000th BlueBox machine
control unit last year!
Thank you to everyone for all of your
support and commitment in 2019. We are confident that by working
in close collaboration, 2020 will be a great year for all of us.
Let’s grow together!
