SMIT Launches Global Service Organization

SMIT Launches Global Service OrganizationItaly-based SMIT S.p.A., formerly Sulzer Tessile, has inaugurated a global organization to provide spare parts and service for the Sulzer Textil G6300 and G6300F rapier weaving machines. On June 1 of this year, SMIT took over manufacturing operations for the G6300 line from Switzerland-based Sultex Ltd. which was acquired in 2002 by the Italy-based Itema Groups subsidiary Promatech as part of SMITs separation from Sultex.SMIT became a stand-alone company under a decision by the European Unions Antitrust Commission to ensure a high level of competition in the European rapier weaving machine market by reducing the Itema Groups strength in that market following the acquisition (See Weaving News, TW, March 2003). Our company is fully committed to [providing] customers with a high added-value service, keeping a direct presence [to be] able to fit the offer with the requirements and expectations of the market, said Luciano Corain, CEO, SMIT.The new spare parts and service organization will supply original spare parts and services for all G6300 and G6300F machines, including those manufactured in the past and those currently being made by SMIT.
