Courtaulds picks Santoni for automatic loading
Wednesday, 16 December 2009

Belper - UK hosiery manufacturer Courtaulds has invested in five new Universal Pick & Place machines from Italian machine builder Santoni.

Over the last four years, Courtaulds, which operates brands such as Aristoc, Pretty Polly and Elbeo, has increased its production of high-quality hosiery from 20,000 dozen pairs per week to nearly 60,000 dozen.

The installation of the new Pick & Place systems, adding to the three systems it already operates, is expected to help the company in terms of both production efficiency and cost control as it continues to expand.
