The company has 300 employees, an annual turnover of EUR 50 million and its annual growth rate is 20%. Harapan Kurnia produces medium- to high-end fashion wear, swimwear and sportswear, as well as ladies and menswear for the local market and for export. The articles are made of cotton, cellulose and blended material with up to 35% spandex content.

Harapan Kurnia already has five Brückner machines in two separate locations and says it is very satisfied with the machine quality, the accurate automatisation, the accurate control system and the optimised heat recovery system.

“Another point is the good after sales support. They are convinced of the advantages of the Brückner stenters compared to machines with lower investment from other producers,” the German machinery manufacturer reports. “Harapan Kurnia indicate the better machine setting, the better quality and the good support as decisive points for their decision to buy now their sixth Brückner machine.”
