From June 16 to 20, the international textile industry met at the ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 in Shanghai. Groz-Beckert was undoubtedly one of the main crowd-pullers: around 7,000 people visited the company's booth which, with the presentation of the TexCar and a circular knitting machine made from glass, provided highly unusual insights into the world of everyday textiles. The relaunch of the app "myGrozBeckert", which now features a new look and numerous useful tools for everyday work in the textile industry, also attracted a great deal of interest.
