The association has organised a group of suppliers from Germany to collectively exhibit at Texcare Asia 2013.

Mr Elgar Straub, Director of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology commented: “This show is the most established and comprehensive event for the laundry and textile cleaning industry in Asia. For the 2013 edition, leading German manufacturers will present state-of-the-art textile care technology and set standards in areas like ultra-modern water recycling systems, integrated washing processes as well as environmentally-friendly textile products. I believe exhibitors and visitors will equally be impressed.”
