It was my pleasure to participate in ‘The Fabric Year’ at Groz-Beckert’s headquarters in Albstadt, Germany this month. I presented to an engaged audience about “Materials Innovation from a Brand Perspective”, including some highlights on Processes, Products and a Future Outlook.
Andreas Engelhardt with ‘The Fiber Year GmbH’, kicked off the event by sharing about macro-trends and market factors in the fiber and fabric industries. Following this, presentations were shared about innovations taking place in textile applications across various sectors and product types.
The keynote presentations were delivered by Dr. Karl-Michael Schumann at Contarix GmbH, who discussed “Innovations in Nonwovens”, “Light Vehicle Technology Impacting Materials” was presented by Jan Kettemann at Schlegel and Partner, “Fibers in Modern Braking Systems” were discussed by Omar Cividini from Brembo SpA, and “Textile & Cement Design Synergies” was shared by Dr. Monica Segata from Italcementi.
Thank you Groz-Beckert for providing such an inspiring and interesting event for all of us!
