Brust Quells Rumors Of Dornier Sale

Brust Quells Rumors Of Dornier SalePeter Brust, executive vice president, American Dornier Machinery Corp., Charlotte, recently commented on rumors of sale or joint venture of the family-owned weaving machinery manufacturer.There are indeed takeover or joint venture rumors, Brust said. However, I assure you these are just rumors and wishful thinking on the part of certain people. Dornier is 100-percent privately owned by the Dornier family and will continue as such for the future.Regarding the recent US trip made by Peter Dornier, managing director, Lindauer Dornier GmbH, American Dorniers Germany-based parent company, Brust said, The Dornier family is very committed to the American market. Certainly, there is no doubt that the United States is going through hard times; however, Mr. Dornier took this opportunity to speak with our customers and explore their needs and problems.Dornier has slated a number of developments for display at ITMA 2003. Brust mentioned the new AirGuide and ServoControl technologies on rapier and air-jet machines, and a new leno weaving machine based on the air jet, among others. May 2003
