A unique teaching institution in the textile sector gets off to a great start

Since October 2011, Groz-Beckert has not only been active as a technology partner to the textile industry but also as a provider of valuable expert knowledge – in the shape of the Groz-Beckert Academy. After an excellent start, the Academy is continuing to fine-tune its profile to match the requirements of customers worldwide. Find out more about this year's new developments, and also about how well the different courses have been accepted over the past two years.

The Groz-Beckert Academy – a unique success story

Knitting, weaving, felting, tufting and sewing – for decades, Groz-Beckert has been renowned for its high-quality products and services in these sectors of the textile industry. Since October 2011, to give its customers even more of a competitive edge, the company has also been offering specialist know-how. With the Groz-Beckert Academy, a knowledge platform has been created that covers all textile production and joining methods and is without parallel worldwide. This year, too, the Academy has a lot to offer that is new, and it is continuing to tailor its courses to the vast amount of demand it has received in the first two years of its existence.

Always up-to-date – the new training modules for 2013

New training courses, specially tailored to the demands of the market and to customers' wishes, are constantly being integrated into the Groz-Beckert Academy program. This year the course "Technical Textiles" is being offered for the first time, and the registration figures make it clear that it has sparked intense interest. The participants in the basics course will gain comprehensive technological expertise as they learn about the rapidly growing sector of technical textiles.

Those interested can now also register for the new course in the basics of "Tufting and Tufting Tool Technology".

On request, where courses are concerned, Groz-Beckert generally fulfills special wishes as well. Its so-called 'individual training courses' are specially adapted to the needs of customers, and can also be held on their premises and in their own machine parks.

Textile know-how – taught in all the important languages

The Groz-Beckert Academy is characterized by a comprehensive and dynamic training program combined with a flexible approach to individual courses. That is only one aspect of the comprehensive offering, however, because the experienced textile experts who teach at the Groz-Beckert Academy not only do so in German and English – courses in Spanish or Chinese can also be booked. This reflects the importance of these languages on the international textile market.

No doubt about it: The Groz-Beckert Academy has succeeded in fulfilling its own high quality standards, and also where knowledge transfer to customers is concerned. In its teaching of skills and know-how regarding textile production methods, the Academy has established itself worldwide as a service provider to the textile sector. As a result, ever since its foundation in October 2011, it already had 328 participants, and interest in the courses offered is growing steadily all the time. In less than two years, there have been 836 training days at the Groz-Beckert Academy.
