The Picanol Group has played a pioneering role worldwide in the development and production of weaving systems for 75 years now. In 1971, the Picanol Group introduced the very first electronically controlled weaving machine in the world. It was also the first weaving machine manufacturer in the world to obtain ISO 9001 certification. Thanks to its policy of innovation, the Picanol Group has managed to surprise the market time and time again with new, high-tech weaving machines thus reinforcing its position among the world leaders.
Picanol's R&D effort is aimed not just at development and production of the most advanced weaving machines and related products and services, but also at achieving the most profitable weaving process in the world. In this way the Picanol Group is able to offer its customers innovative solutions for raising the efficiency and productivity of their weaving process. And since its technological know-how can also be applied in related fields and other branches of industry, the Picanol Group confirms its strategy of expanding sales of this technology to third parties. This diversification builds on the group’s existing competencies, including knowledge of and access to the textile markets, and development and production know-how.
