Tajima embroidery machine supplier Hirsch International Corp., Hauppauge, N.Y., and embroidery
thread manufacturer Madeira USA Ltd., Laconia, N.H., have formed a partnership through which Hirsch
will sell embroidery machines and provide service, parts and accessories; and Madeira will provide
embroidery supplies to Hirsch’s customers.

“For some time now, Madeira has been the vendor of choice for Hirsch, supplying Tajima owners
with the finest thread and other supplies in the industry,” said Hajo Voeller, president, Madeira
USA. “Now moving forward, Hirsch/Tajima and Madiera USA will be working together to bring
risk-free, care-free results to the business of embroidery.”
