As an experienced and reliable value chain tech partner, our passion is to create customized and flexible systems for various industries. Fashion, one of our six core business areas, is an excellent example of this. Through close collaboration with our subsidiary Dürkopp, we have developed extensive expert knowledge over the years in this area. Since 2010, Dürkopp Fördertechnik, headquartered in Bielefeld, Germany, has been a member of the KNAPP group, providing valuable insight and knowledge about the fashion industry. A pioneer in pocket sorter technology, the company boasts an impressive track record.
Through regular close collaboration, we pool our expert knowledge and technological strengths to optimally fulfill the requirements of the fashion sector. This work relationship leads colleagues from both teams, in Bielefeld as well as in Graz, to share their knowledge and learn from each other. Under the leadership of Vera Ellmeier, Team Leader, Systems Engineering at KNAPP, the teams design all-in-one intralogistics solutions for the clothing industry. Through the synergies created by the cross-company project management, both companies continually expand their know-how of overhead conveyor systems. The end result is not only an innovative product made up of two technologies that adds value for the customer; the teams of both companies also become one strong unit running like clockwork. “The collaboration with Dürkopp Fördertechnik allows us to offer our customers a wide range of scalable solutions with the degree of automation they seek. The combination of our technologies is an approach that, in the future, is likely to be interesting for other industries as well,” says Vera Ellmeier.
