On July 28-29, 2013 the newly founded company Autefa Solutions Wuxi Co. Ltd. was inaugurated. With more than 100 guests on hand the traditional ribbon cutting was performed by Maoxin Ye, vice president, China Hi Tech Group Cooperation (CHTC) and CEO of Textile Machinery Unit, and Dr. Stefan Schlichter, CEO Autefa Solutions.
With Autefa Solutions Wuxi the company combines Chinese and European technologies for the purpose of serving the local Chinese market. One of the first machines being offered is the Crosslapper Uniliner CL 88, a reliable and economical machine equipped with modern drive technology, based on the successful crosslapper series Topliner.
“In addition to our well proven machines for the premium market, which heads for high performance and quality, we now offer with Autefa Solutions Wuxi machines and services also from China for Chinese customers,” says Schlichter. “From the product and technical view it means we offer a unique blend of European and Chinese technology for the first time produced in China under the brand Autefa Solutions. The European source of our product is the design and software. These are added by production and assembly from Autefa Solutions Wuxi.”
Autefa, Fehrer, F.O.R. and OCTIR, are the main companies of the Autefa Solutions Group and are located in Germany, Austria and Italy. All companies have a long and successful history in textile machinery worldwide and in the Chinese market.
