We wish to revolutionize the textile machinery market. Our innovative and patented solutions increase customer competitiveness and bring them ecological and economic benefits.
Our goal is to reach a stable and recognized position amongst producers of textile machines and their users. We wish to bring other significant innovations which will change the well-established processes of printed textile production. We wish to be recognized as a “green” company producing “eco-friendly” machines.
Almost eight billion people need something to wear every day. The textile industry is one of the biggest and most diverse industries in the world. But, at the same time, it is the second most polluting industry right after the oil industry. Twenty percent of water around the world gets polluted due to clothing production. For one cotton T-shirt, 2,500 litres of drinking water are consumed. In addition, enough electrical energy is consumed each year to power a quarter of the USA for the whole year. And, the same amount of greenhouse gases are produced as during operation of ninety four million cars. On top of it all, clothing is mainly produced using cheap labour in developing countries.
The digital textile printing market in 2019 reached roughly 1.5 % of total value, which equates to roughly 2.2 billion U.S. dollars. Meanwhile, the production of printed textiles by the analogous method (screen printing or rotary printing) is stagnating, while the production of digitally printed textiles is growing at a significant pace. It is expected that before 2027 there will be 19.1 % year-on-year growth up to the value of 8.8 billion U.S. dollars. This is caused mainly by increased demand for customization (lower volumes tailored to the customer) and also by demands for delivery speed, production efficiency, lower entry costs or production returns in the EU. It is expected that also textile superpowers such as China and India will have to adjust to this trend. Protecting the environment is also a major current challenge.
From the beginning of our development we have been collaborating with the top suppliers, research organizations and professionals in the textile industry, all of whom having quite an influence on what phase of development we are currently in. We have been a member of the Association of the Textile-Clothing-Leather Industry since 2020.
Under the auspices of the CzechInvest agency we have participated in several acceleration programmes in Singapore, New York and Oslo. We introduced our product also in India as part of a technology mission organized by Ministry of Industry and Trade. We have also participated in many Trade fairs. We receive positive feed-back and we make valuable contacts amongst the professional public, potential customers and also amongst representatives of governments and chambers of commerce. Admiration for our innovative solutions has been expressed by Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, the Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Industry and Trade Karel Havlíček.
Currently, we are using our technology in the subsidiary project FABRISSIMO, which offers custom printing of roll-to-roll fabric. Already from 1 ordinary metre. It is a service which currently does not have any significant competition either in the Czech Republic or in Slovakia.
At this moment we are ready for expansion into new markets and to start with serial production.
Our goal is to also focus more on research and development itself and deepen the thought process of ecological production of printed fabric. We would also like to build our own showroom centres where we would have the opportunity to introduce our innovative solutions in practice.
