Tour of Swisstulle
The members and friends of IFWS Switzerland met on 23.11.2018 for a special event.
The IFKT’s extraordinary meeting started with a tour of member company Swisstulle in St. Margarethen, Switzerland, led by COO Flavian Schuler and Business Unit Manager Warp Knitting, Samuel Gerber. During the visit and subsequent discussion, the participants learnt how the company had developed from a bobbinet manufacturer into a producer of state-of-the-art technical textiles. The group then gathered at ‘Hof zu Wil’, an historical museum and restaurant in the old town of Wil. The highlight of the event was the handing over of the IFKT Swiss National Section’s management board to the new, younger team. With words of optimism, Berndt Meyer handed over the sceptre in the name of the outgoing management board to the new chairperson Claudia Hofmann, crowning her “Claudia, Ruler of Textile Practitioners” as a symbol of her new responsibilities. In a short speech held on behalf of the members, Andreas Greuter thanked the outgoing management board for their commitment and service over the years.
