Südwolle Group expands further into Turkey

Südwolle Group, the worsted spinner based in Nürnberg, Germany, has announced its plans to increase its presence in the Turkish market.

Starting this month, the Group will establish a subsidiary company in Turkey to increase service levels for its wool-based yarns to the textile industry in that region.

Südwolle Group delivers worsted wool and wool blend yarns alongside specialist service for weaving, flat knitting, circular knitting, hosiery and technical textiles.

The move reflects a number of factors, according to the manufacturer, which include the importance and potential of the textile industry in Turkey, as well as the desire to be more responsive to customer requirements.

Expansion and growth

In the last two years, Südwolle Group has also opened subsidiaries or offices in the USA, the UK and Hong Kong. “Südwolle Group 5.0 is what we call this stage of our company’s 50 years of evolution from a manufacturing expert to a customer focused service organisation. We are setting up our sales, planning and production teams to be more fit for purpose,” commented Stéphane Thouvay, Director for Südwolle weaving yarns division and for the new Turkish legal entity.

“Strengthening our presence in the Turkish market is an important part of that strategy. The decision to invest in Turkey underlines clearly the confidence of Südwolle Group in the wool sector and illustrates also the Group’s organisational transformation to align itself more closely with its supply chain partners.”

Managing sales activities

Mr Melik Erdinç has been appointed to the position of the General Manager of Südwolle Group Turkey as from 1 October 2015. He is an expert in this field with more than 15 years of experience in the Turkish wool industry.

Mr Erdinç will be based in Istanbul and will be responsible for managing sales activities for the full range of wool based yarns for weaving, flat knitting, circular knitting, hosiery and technical textiles.
