Located in St. Stefan/ Austria, Montex Maschinenfabrik – the key site for the manufacturing of Monforts finishing machines in Austria – was founded by Monforts in 1982.
From the outset, Montex has specialized in all aspects of machine production, including high-precision sheet metal working, laser cutting and welding, and the pre-assembly of machines and components, along with a well-organized quality management and spare parts service. The company works very closely with the research and development team of A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Mönchengladbach/Germany, to take the latest new ideas through testing and prototyping, in readiness for future series production. Fully exploiting the many new possibilities in the continuous development of design and manufacturing methods, the respective electrical switch cabinets for the machines are delivered just-in-time from Monforts in Germany.
While there is standardization in series-produced Monforts machines, Montex is also increasingly called upon to construct bespoke machines with unique designs, according to the special needs of customers in technical textile or special textiles. The core Monforts machine range is built at the site, including the industry standard Montex stenters, along with relaxation dryers, Thermex dyeing ranges, Monfortex compressive shrinking ranges and MontexCoat coating units.
As well as having long-tome employees, the company also places great emphasis on training apprentices at the same time, to pass on our know-how and ensure high standards. The Dual Training System combines theoretical instruction in a vocational school with practical training both within the company and in training workshops.
Established staff also train regularly to develop new skills, and everyone is involved at all stages of production and trained to multi-task. This gives the company more flexibility.
