Impossible not anymore

"Why change?"
"It's not possible."
"We've always done it this way."

That's how ideas are killed off before they are even born. That's how people are discouraged from trying new things. That's what stops markets from evolving and innovating. 


The market for technical weaving machines is like that. Where we hear things like “For our customers, speed is of lesser importance.” Or “Only very bespoke technical solutions can meet the hyper-specialist needs of our customers.” Or even “Our customers are specialized, they don't need flexible machines.”

At Picanol Technical, we don’t believe this. We don't believe that anybody, no matter how specialized, wants to be locked into a niche market. We believe that everybody can grow through flexibility.

We believe that in every market, faster is better.
