Symposia of Rieter’s Business Group Components in Vietnam

Rieter was introducing premium technology, parts and accessories for the staple fiber spinning industry on-site

In a series of symposia held in Thai Binh, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City, the Swiss company Rieter successfully introduced not only its portfolio of advanced technology components and precision winding systems but also presented new products to over 200 specialists from the Vietnamese textile industry.

During the symposia, the attendees from more than 60 local companies had the opportunity to experience the products via presentation and on a small table exhibition. The exhibits were technology parts and accessories for the staple fiber spinning and further processing manufactured by Bräcker, Graf, Novibra, SSM and Suessen. All companies are specialized in the production of components for the spinning industry and subsidiaries of Rieter Components. The following products were demonstrated: rings and travellers for ring spinning (Bräcker), card clothings, combs for comber (Graf), ring spindles (Novibra), precision winding machines (SSM) and spinning systems for ring- and open-end-spinning (Suessen). The organizer – Rieter Components and the representatives from the five affiliate subsidiaries – were satisfied with the events and the positive feedback from the local professional audience.

As local agent for Graf, ILLIES actively supports the distribution, sales and maintenance of all Graf’s components in Vietnam. These symposia have been a very good opportunity to present the advantages of this cooperation to the customers from the staple fiber community in Vietnam.

In March 2018, ILLIES extended its portfolio for the local textile market by offering new services in its Service Center in Ho Chi Minh City. This gives customers, who have demand for card cloth mounting but do not have own service machines, the opportunity to obtain this service from ILLIES and to test the service machines in regular live demonstrations and trainings on-site in the service center before ordering.
