Febratex Brazil

21 - 24 August 2018 in Blumenau, Brazil

Visit Mahlo at booth 39 - Setor1

For the 16th time, the Febratex trade show will take place in Blumenau, Brazil, for 4 days from Tuesday 21 to Friday 24 August.  Be sure to visit us at booth 39 –Setor 1! In Brazil, we concentrate on web gauging with our Qualiscan QMS-12 and our weft straightening technology with our straightener Orthopac RVMC.

Trends and Innovations

The Brazilian textile industry impresses with numbers that reflect its strength and potential for growth: the South American country is not only the second largest producer and third largest consumer of denim worldwide but also the fourth largest producer of knitwear and self-sufficient in cotton production. In contrast to many other countries, you can find everything you need for textile and apparel manufacturing within Brazil – from fiber to finishing.

It is therefore not surprising that this industrial branch with 29 000 companies and 1,5 million jobs as second largest employer is an important economic factor.

The Febratex shows a representative cross section of the Brazilian textile industry. The trade show is a must for all players in the market. Target audience for the fair is expert visitors, who want to get the latest news on technical innovations in the areas of cutting and sewing, punching, weaving, raw material, machines and applications for dry cleaning, automatic cutting, and printing. They have the chance to get in contact with more than 2400 national and international brands that are distributed to five pavilions at the Vila Germanica Park in Blumenau.
