The industry leading, biennial Techtextil Exhibition took place in Frankfurt in June, and Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd., along with the rest of the Fothergill Group, were delighted to exhibit there.

Long known as the most influential platform to explore the very latest product innovations and manufacturing techniques for producers and users of the widest imaginable array of technical textiles and processes, 2022 did not disappoint.

With over 40,000 visitors from 50+ countries, serviced by over 1,000 exhibitors, it has become established as an important part of the TBA & Fothergill Group calendars. The opportunity to meet so many customers, suppliers and visitors in just a few days presented a fabulous level of engagement.

As Fothergill Group COO (Technical Textiles), Nader Midani explains; “The big attraction of Techtextil to our business is that we think it is an environment that plays to our strengths as a Group. Customers want specific, innovative solutions and that is something that can often not be achieved by the capabilities of a single business or manufacturing unit. With the complementary mix of our individual businesses, we can draw on not only the human technical expertise from across the Group, but also bring together some fairly unique manufacturing capabilities in engineered fabrics and yarns, specialist coatings, PPE and materials able to cope with extreme conditions, especially heat and flame.

There is nothing we like more than to be challenged to come up with bespoke, often technically complex solutions that we can deliver simply to our customers – and Techtextil is such a brilliant place to do this.”

A great show all round and we look forward to seeing everyone again in 2024!
