TIME FOR A CHANGE 

This year it was time for a change! The organization had never been so structured and because of this we were proud to present this to our customers. It was time for a new identity. In this process we determined our strong points and due to long experience in the narrow textile industry combined with thirty years of improvement, challenges and growth have resulted in: Ribbon & Rope house of narrow textiles!
