Autefa Solutions is expanding in Europe and Asia

November 16, 2012

New facility in China will help to keep up with the growing Chinese market.

Autefa Solutions is expanding its headquarters in Friedberg, Bavaria, where it will unite the traditional companies Fehrer, F.O.R., Octir, and Autefa under one roof.

Autefa Solutions’ product portfolio includes bale presses, nonwoven machines (fiber preparation and carding machines, crosslappers, and needle looms), wool processing machines, and
automation for the consumer goods sector.

Since September 2011, the company has been part of the Chinese group CHTC, the largest manufacturer of textile machinery in China and number two globally in this segment.

The core philosophy of the Autefa Solutions Group is the development and implementation of innovative and customer oriented products based on continuous further development, with design and manufacturing in Europe.

By choosing the Friedberg location as the center of development and order processing, the management is responding to the demand from premium customers for new, state-of-the-art technology from a single source.

Autefa Solutions develops all technologies and puts it into production solely at the company’s European locations. To keep up with the growing Chinese market, Autefa Solutions' operations in China will also be expanded with a facility in China. Manufacturing of machines tailored to the Chinese market combined with intensive collaboration with the CHTC sister companies will be the focus of this new Autefa location.
