Schoch highlights pioneering reeds solutions at ITME
Schoch presented its latest range of weaving accessories, including reeds and other components, at ITME 2022.
Italy-based Schoch & Co. S.r.l. – now a part of Itema Group – presented its latest range of weaving accessories, including reeds and other components, at ITME 2022. Matteo Schoch, Director, Schoch & Co, said, “In 2019, majority of Schoch & Co shares were acquired by Itema Group. In India, we are manufacturing reeds since 2008. Year 2022 was a record year for us in India. In 2023, we are moving our factory to a new location (which is near to our existing site in Kolhapur, Maharashtra) to double our production capacity.”
Speaking about the growth plans, he said, “We are seeing more demand for high-quality, high-speed and low-consumption products. This is good for us as we are the leading player in reeds offering quality products. India, with its large domestic market and big export potential, offers huge opportunity for us to grow. To serve the growing needs of the market, besides reeds, we will be adding new products in drop wires, heald wires and heald frames in the coming months.”
