Realignment of SSM Textile Machinery

Horgen, May 17, 2016 – SSM Textile Machinery concentrates the segment of texturing machines
At its site in Horgen, SSM will concentrate in future on the development, production and commercialization of high-tech winding and sewing-thread machines. As part of this focusing process, the texturing machines business will be transferred to the existing site in Galbiate (Italy).

The planned measures will result in approximately 20 redundancies in Switzerland. Part of the personnel reduction will take place by natural fluctuation and early retirements. The company is striving for a socially acceptable solution for all affected persons.

With this focusing, SSM Textile Machinery is increasing its sustainable competitiveness and securing the remaining jobs in Switzerland.
