With the merger of the two companies, the competencies in the field of functional wet finishing, digital printing pre-treatment and spray dyeing processes will be bundled for the textile segment. Both companies believe that these segments offer good future opportunities. Because the demand for a resource-saving, CO2-reduced dyeing and finishing process for textile yarns and fabrics is increasing rapidly.

Market trend towards ever smaller lot sizes

Likewise the market trend of ever smaller production lot sizes per order. "We can now meet these requirements even more efficiently through the company merger," emphasises Rainer Tuexen, former shareholder of RotaSpray GmbH.

Tobias Schurr, the new managing director of RotaSpray GmbH, underlines: “With the resulting synergies in product development, process know-how and production, we will be able to provide our customers with even more attractive solutions in the future. For us, the actual saving of chemicals, water, wastewater and drying energy is important in order to make the processes not only more cost-efficient, but also more environmentally friendly."

Large network

With its large network, WEKO Holding also brings in a globally well-structured service organisation that will also look after RotaSpray products in the future. RotaSpray GmbH will continue to be managed as an independent unit within the WEKO Holding Group and will focus purely on the high-quality textile sector.

WEKO has been developing and producing non-contact application systems for product optimisation and surface finishing with different types of liquids and powdery substances since 1953. The areas of application are broad and the nonwovens, paper, tissue, printing, wood fibre boards, foils and metal industries are successfully supported with WEKO solutions.
