Picanol celebrates historic milestone with production of 400,000th weaving machine in Ieper

We achieved a new milestone last week with the production of our 400,000th weaving machine in Ieper, Belgium. This is a new high point in our company's rich history of production, which started in Ieper. The very first Picanol weaving machine was produced in 1936, based on a design by Spanish engineer Jaimé Picañol, after whom the company was named. The 400,000th weaving machine, an OmniPlus-i Connect airjet weaving machine, leaves the home base in Ieper this week on its way to a customer in India.
