FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany — August 2012 — All the signs are that Texprocess, Leading International
Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, in Frankfurt am Main from 10 to 13 June
2013, will be a complete success. With a year still to go before the doors open, over 50 percent of
exhibition space has already been sold and the market leaders are on board. Moreover, numerous
international companies from all parts of the textile-processing chain have signed up to take part
for the first time.
Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, says, “The good response to
Texprocess 2013, especially from new customers, leaves no doubt that our concept fulfils the needs
of the market. And this is reinforced by the fact that Texprocess is held concurrently with
Techtextil, by the high level of international participation and by its high-tech-character.”
The new Texprocess exhibitors include Cutter Audaces from Brazil, Zünd Systemtechnik from
Switzerland and the Turkish finisher Malkan Makina. Among the other international market leaders
taking part will be Amann, Assyst, Brother, Coats, Dürkopp Adler, Expert Systemtechnik, Ferd.
Schmetz, FK Group, Gütermann, Human Solutions, Hornung Indupress, Kaiser Lutra Textilmaschinen,
Kansai, KSL, Lectra, Juki, Madeira, Martin Group, Morgan Tecnica, Sunstar, Topcut-Bullmer, Veit,
Vibemac, X’ian Typical and ZSK.
Elgar Straub, Director General of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology, the conceptual partner
of Texprocess, says, “Our members are looking forward to Texprocess 2013 with a high degree of
optimism. The international garment-manufacturing industry is facing big challenges in terms of
higher energy costs and an increased interest in sustainability. Our industry will present
high-tech solutions designed to meet these challenges at the next Texprocess.”
For the first time, manufacturers of embroidery machines will exhibit in Hall 6.0, in the
immediate vicinity of the finishing and textile logistics product groups. To make room for them,
‘Source it’ moves to Hall 5.0. Thus, international manufacturing companies can present their
expertise in the heart of the sewing and joining technology segment, which stretches over Halls 5.0
and 5.1. As before, trade visitors will find design, product development, cutting and IT in Hall
4.0, which adjoins Halls 3 and 4.1 where Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical
Textiles and Nonwovens, will take place from 11 to 13 June 2013.
The coming Texprocess and Techtextil fairs will end on the same day, Thursday, 13 June 2013.
In this connection, Braun adds: “The combination of Texprocess and Techtextil is unbeatable in the
expanding technical-textiles market. Next year, the spotlight will be more than ever before on the
synergistic effects created by the two fairs.” Thus, in addition to processing technology at
Texprocess, trade visitors from the fashion industry will also be able to find out about
‘functional apparel textiles’ at Techtextil. This new product group expands and replaces the
‘Avantex – innovative apparel textiles’ section. Representatives of technical-textile processing
companies can also benefit from the added value generated by the two events because they will be
able to obtain an overview not only of the latest materials but also of innovative technologies.
326 exhibitors made presentations at Texprocess 2011. The world’s leading international trade
fair for the sector attracted around 10,500 trade visitors with another 6,500 coming from the
concurrent Techtextil. The next Texprocess Americas will be held from 13 to 15 May 2014 in Atlanta,
in parallel to Techtextil North America. Details about Texprocess can be found at:
