In the combined 300-year-old tradition of the Schärer, Schweiter and Mettler companies, which merged in 1989 to become SSM, the commitment to textile machinery and facilities for yarn processing has always been exceptional.
In 1999, two other companies inspired by tradition joined the SSM Group.
Stähle-Eltex GmbH and SSM merged to develop air texturing technology and to strengthen their leader-ship position in the marketplace.
And with HACOBA as partner, SSM is able to offer a complete range of sewing thread finishing machines. Practically SSM can offer a complete portfolio to process yarns.
As of 1st February 2012 SSM Schärer Schweiter Mettler AG, Horgen, Switzerland has taken over the activities of Giudici S.p.A., Galbiate (LC), Italy. Giudici’s strong market position in the field of false-twist texturing of high quality fine count Nylon yarns, an application that complements SSM’s established leadership in air texturing, will further expand SSM’s business in the chemical fibre processing industry.
