In light of the global spread of COVID-19, many textile machinery trade fairs where Picanol was due to be present in 2020 are being either rescheduled to later this year or moved to 2021.
This week, Picanol realized another impressive milestone when its 100,000th rapier weaving machine rolled off the production line at its plant in Ieper, Belgium. Picanol is also celebrating 45 years of manufacturing rapier weaving machines in 2020.
We want to focus on the best possible procedures to safeguard the lifetime and good functioning of your Picanol weaving machines.
Our CEO Luc Tack explains how we are adapting our organization to this exceptional situation in order to continue to support our valued customers.
In light of the latest developments regarding the global spread of COVID-19, Picanol has announced that it will restart production at its plant in Ieper (Belgium - Machines & Technologies segment) on a step-by-step basis with effect from today, Tuesday, April 14, 2020.
Based on the recommendations from the WHO and the relevant local authorities, Picanol has already taken a comprehensive set of health and safety initiatives in order to protect its employees and others from the disease and keep its plants and its businesses running as normal.
