20 years of Com4? yarns: A success story

In 1997, Rieter created the trademark Com4®. It stands for yarns in superior and consistent quality, spun with the four Rieter spinning technologies. Today, more than 130 licensees supply Com4® yarns to weavers and knitters worldwide.

Twenty years ago, Rieter celebrated the market launch of its compact spinning technology. The yarn produced on these machines has very high strength and low hairiness. This is something that weavers and knitters greatly value. Fabrics made from this compact yarn impress by their clear structure and delicate sheen. For this special yarn, Rieter created the trademark Com4®.

Rieter is the only supplier of all four spinning technologies: ring, compact, rotor and airjet. All produce yarn with superior and consistent quality. For this reason, several years ago Rieter extended the brand Com4®: today it unites all four yarns.

Customers with Rieter spinning machines can apply for a Com4® license. Rieter supports the licensees with various marketing activities, for instance the company promotes the licensees’ yarns at leading trade fairs in Paris, Shanghai and Mumbai. Also in numerous articles in the trade press, Com4® takes the center stage. Every year, training courses are held worldwide: Rieter employees explain to yarn traders the influence exerted by the yarns on downstream processing and the end product, using many practical examples as illustration.

Weavers and knitters have high demands and they make no compromises. They want yarns with consistent quality – yarns that can also be faultlessly processed, because the end products must always have the same high standard: the Com4® yarns from Rieter fulfill all these requirements.

The Com4® yarns are yarns which satisfy the highest demands and guarantee competitiveness in a dynamic market. Thanks to mature technologies, yarn production in Rieter ring, compact, rotor and air-jet spinning processes demonstrates a high level of efficiency and achieves excellent yarn quality. Rieter customers thus profit from optimized production costs and good selling outlets. The advantages of the Com4® yarns are also visible in downstream processing and in the end product, for example in long service lives, low fiber fly, higher color absorption, excellent pilling values, reduced drall and high wearing comfort of the end products. The family of the Com4 yarns consists of Com4®ring, Com4®compact, Com4®rotor and Com4®jet.

Com4®ring and Com4®rotor License for Sirikcioglu Mensucat

Rieter has awarded the Turkish textile company Sirikcioglu Mensucat the license for ring and rotor yarns of the highest quality. Thanks to this licensing, the company can promote its yarns under the trademarks Com4®ring and Com4®rotor.

Rieter recently awarded its customer Sirikcioglu Mensucat the license for high-class ring and rotor yarns. This licensing allows the company to now promote the yarns under the brand names Com4®ring and Com4®rotor. Sirikcioglu Mensucat is one of the leading textile companies in Turkey. With headquarters in Kahramanmaras, the company processes cotton and synthetic fibres to high-class ring and rotor yarn – spun on 1,50,000 Rieter spindle equivalents.

Com4® is a globally registered trademark for yarns which are produced on Rieter spinning machines. With Com4®, licensees are given the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and to profit from a variety of marketing activities. Rieter promotes the yarns of the licensees worldwide at trade fairs and seminars, organises training courses for yarn handlers and provides supporting publicity material.

The textile company founded in 1996 meanwhile enjoys a lead position in Turkey. Since 2013, Sirikcioglu Mensucat is also represented in Kayseri. Today, 90 000 tons per year of cotton and manmade fibers are spun in the spinning mill to high-quality ring and rotor yarns on 1,50,000 Rieter spindle equivalents. The weaving mill’s capacity with 700 weaving machines is 60 million metres of fabric per year. The company focuses on the reduction of its CO2 emissions and on increasing its energy efficiency. Rieter meets these requirements by supplying sustainable and efficient spinning mill systems. With 2,800 employees, Sirikcioglu Mensucat produces first-class products. The company places great value on good working conditions as well as comprehensive training and development programs for its employees.

Rieter is the world’s leading supplier of systems for short-staple fibre spinning. Based in Winterthur (Switzerland), the company develops and manufactures machinery, systems and components used to convert natural and manmade fibres and their blends into yarns. Rieter is the only supplier worldwide to cover spinning preparation processes as well as all four end spinning technologies currently established on the market. With 15 manufacturing locations in nine countries, the company employs a global workforce of some 5,020, about 20 per cent of whom are based in Switzerland.
