Brückner Stenter Supplied To FINITEX

FINITEX (PTY) Ltd., South Africa, has decided to purchase a new-generation, split-flow air
circulation tenter system from Brückner Trockentechnik GmbH & Co. KG, Germany.

FINITEX’s decision to buy from Brückner was based on the successful performance of two
previously purchased Brückner tenters, as well as project requirements. The new tenter, designed
for a working width of 3,200 millimeters, will be used primarily for the finishing of raschel
fabrics containing elastic nylon fiber.
