Cooperation between Lenzing Plastics and Gruschwitz Tech-Twists


Lenzing Plastics and Gruschwitz Tech-Twists sign sales and develop cooperation for Lenzing PROFILEN® Fibers

The Austrian company Lenzing Plastics GmbH (Lenzing) and German twists specialist Gruschwitz GmbH Tech-Twists (Leutkirch) will be cooperating closely
in the future. The agreement signed in May concerns the Lenzing division PTFE Yarns and Fibers sold under the brand name Lenzing PROFILEN®. The cooperation aims to open up new markets and to provide customers of both companies with a wide range of services.

Both partners will be bringing their acknowledged expertise to the cooperation: Lenzing Plastics is an experienced manufacturer of PTFE Yarns and Fibers for diverse applications ranging from industrial uses to sports products, architecture and medical textiles. Gruschwitz Tech-Twits is a well-established yarn twists specialist whose products are used in many high-tech industries.

Since the demands made on technical textiles are permanently on the rise, partnerships offering wide-ranging market and technology know-how are becoming ever more significant. This development and sales cooperation benefits the customers of both companies. On the one hand through the
increased support with regard to product development and on the other through the additional opportunities it provides concerning the design and manufacture of Lenzing PROFILEN® PTFE Yarns.

„By combining the twists competence of Gruschwitz with the PTFE know-how of Lenzing Plastics, we can offer our customers outstanding products. In addition we are also opening up new areas of application”, says Johann Huber, managing director of Lenzing Plastics.“ “The Gruschwitz sales channels are also very beneficial.”

Ditmar Schultschik, managing director of Gruschwitz, is expecting this cooperation agreement to generate increased growth. “The customers, products and technology of Lenzing Plastics ideally supplement our products and services portfolio. With agreements such as this one, we are looking to intensify our cooperation with leading fiber manufacturers. Our aim is to continue to grow together with our customers and Lenzing Plastics thanks to innovative yarn and twist solutions.” Schultschik’s managing director colleague, Klaus Gudat, adds: “We are convinced that we can generate considerable added value for both our company’s customers. In addition we will also be a reliable, innovative and flexible partner for them.”
