Autefa Solutions’ future range of machinery will include equipment for thermobonding, drying, cutting and winding. For that purpose, the company Autefa Solutions Switzerland AG, based in Lengwil, was founded. From the holders of the rights of the insolvent Strahm Hi-Tex System AG licenses for the relevant intellectual property rights and the trade mark rights have been obtained.
In addition to web bonding by needling and spunlacing the application of thermal bonding in the range of medium to heavy web weights and in the hygienic sector becomes a significant alternative.
On the basis of a license agreement with the owners of the intellectual property rights and the know-how, the technologies developed from the insolvent Strahm Hi-Tex Systems AG in Lengwil, Switzerland can be used and further developed. Besides the brands Autefa, Fehrer, Octir and For, the brand name Strahm as a technology name is continued.
The newly founded Autefa Solutions Switzerland AG offers to a team of experienced development and sales specialists a new basis to utilize the development potential under the roof of the Autefa Solutions Group. In Lengwil, Switzerland, sales, R & D and construction are located, purchase, production and assembly take place in Friedberg, Germany, the headquarters of the group.
