Jakob Muller, SB-Breitenbach Announce Merger
Narrow fabric knitting and weaving
machinery producer Jakob Müller AG, Frick; and continuous dyeing, printing, fixing, dressing and
coating machinery producer SB-Breitenbach Maschinen AG — both based in Switzerland — have merged
into one company. All SB operations have been assumed by the Jakob Müller Group.
SB formerly operated as part of Switzerland-based Bandfabrik Breitenbach AG, a manufacturer of fancy ribbons. For more than 40 years, SB has manufactured finishing machinery for elastic and non-elastic narrow fabrics, and has sold its products under the System Breitenbach brand name.
Prior to the merger, SB and Jakob Müller had established a strategic alliance to provide comprehensive solutions to their customers.
Now, according to Jakob Müller, the merger enables “integrative consulting for every phase of manufacture, a machine pool that meets every need and [signals] our clear responsibility as a systems supplier.”
