In May 2018, the Starlinger Group, Vienna/ Austria, announced the successful acquisition of Barmag Spinnzwirn, Chemnitz/Germany, from Oerlikon Management AG, Pfäffikon/Switzerland. With the closing (final transfer of ownership) effected on October 1, 2018, Oerlikon Barmag Spinnzwirn now turns into the independent company STC Spinnzwirn GmbH (Starlinger Textile machinery Chemnitz).
The Starlinger Group already includes a winder technology specialist with Georg Sahm GmbH & Co. KG, Eschwege/Germany. The combined know-how of the 2 companies encourages a focus on core competencies and key markets, allowing the Starlinger Group to offer an even broader, customer-oriented product range in the future.
The first joined trade show appearance of Starlinger, Sahm and STC Spinnzwirn will take place at the textile machinery exhibition ITMA 2019 (June 20-26, 2019) in Barcelona/Spain.
