Staubli machinery is known for exceptional reliability, unsurpassed production speeds, and very long service life. The Swiss company, founded in 1892, offers automatic drawing-in machines, the latest generation dobbies, electronic jacquard machines, carpet weaving systems, technical weaving systems, and knitting solutions.
Stäubli is valued by industrial customers worldwide for its high-quality products and cutting-edge technologies. It has become a leading supplier to the global weaving industry. This expansion strategy has been constantly augmented by intensive R&D activities, and the results can be seen in a comprehensive range of high-performance products integrating state-of-the-art technologies.
The group’s textile activities have grown in line with its corporate targets. In 1969, Stäubli acquired German company Trumpelt, which specialised in heavy dobbies. As a shedding solution specialist in frame weaving, the company then decided to expand its range to include jacquard weaving. This led to the acquisition of Verdol, mechanical jacquard machines maker. To expand its product range to cover the complete weaving process, Zellweger (weaving preparation solutions) and Schönherr (carpet weaving systems) were purchased in 1994 and 1998 respectively. Finally, Deimo was acquired, a long-time industry partner providing drive and control systems for a wide range of applications.
