Geropa Sport affirms quality of Busi socks knitting machines

Busi 500 is a single cylinder sock machine with latch needles in the dial to enable it to produce heavy gauge sport socks with true rib and terry. © Busi Giovanni Geropa Sport, a Belgium based manufacturer of high-end technical and sport socks and stockings, has been cooperating with Italian hosiery knitting machine builder Busi Giovanni since the 1990s, when it acquired its first Busi machines for the production of high quality sports socks.

The company’s first Busi machines, manufactured in 1993, are still in production today, the company reports. According to Busi Giovanni, this is a proof of the longevity of its machines, which are said to have a proven average life of 25 years.

European manufacturer and supplier Geropa Sport was established more than 35 years ago. Among the first purchases from Busi Giovanni was the Busi 500 single cylinder sock machine. Today the company uses it mainly to produce high quality heavy-work socks. After more than 20 years, all four of the company’s Busi machines are still very reliable in terms of performances and quality, according to the manufacturer.
