On 22/9/2011, the very first day of the ITMA Barcelona exhibition which is held from 22 till 29 September, it will exactly be 75 years since Picanol was founded in Ypres (Belgium). The company name refers to the Spanish engineer Jaimé Picañol. His ideas shaped products that brought with them important technological advantages. Since its foundation in 1936, the Picanol Group has evolved from a very small player in the world to the technological leader among the modern weaving machine manufacturers. To put its rich history in the spotlight Picanol already launched a blog site (http://75yearsofpicanolgroup.blogspot.com/ ) and during ITMA a photo book will be published.
