During 2020 Adelco has reported that the company manufactured 136 high-end textile drying systems and 43 automated textile printing systems.
This positive news comes following what can only be described as a difficult year for most businesses. The pandemic created many issues for those in the textile and apparel sectors.
Equipment manufacturers saw varied results as a cause of the pandemic and are having to change and respond to these changing market trends.
Adelco made significant expansion plans in 2019, having moved to a new manufacturing facility in December 2019, trebling its manufacturing space and heavily investing in equipment such as CNC machining systems, additional staff and R&D projects. Such an expansion seemed daunting in the first quarter of 2020 when the pandemic effect was unknown and lockdowns began around the world.
Mark Smith, managing director at Adelco, said: “We decided to announce these figures to the market to show there can be many reasons to be positive in the textile industry during such difficult times.”
