Picanol first entered India back in 1956 and following the growth of this hugely important market, we decided to set up our own organization in India in 2008. We are proud to offer the broadest product range on the Indian market in terms of both airjet and rapier machines.
At the Techtextil and ITMACH events, we presented our latest airjet machine – the OmniPlus-i - to our Indian customers for the very first time. The emphasis at Techtextil was on technical textiles. Following some significant R&D investments, we have become an industry leader for high-tech weaving machines in the technical textiles sector thanks to such developments as super-wide rapier machines and the new SmartShed technology.
Meanwhile, at ITMACH, the OmniPlus-i weaved a denim fabric at the highest industrial speeds. And it made quite the impression: Picanol won the award for the most innovative technical display at the event!
In addition to the main office in Delhi, Picanol also has regional offices in Mumbai and Coimbatore. In total, 35 Picanol professionals in India – that are trained and supported by the colleagues at the head office in Ypres (Belgium) – remain fully committed to providing a high level of service to our Indian customers and further strengthening our presence in the country.
