Weaving is one of the oldest manufacturing processes known to man, but in the age of technical textiles it is about to undergo exciting new transformations, says Peter D. Dornier, chief executive officer and co-owner of Lindauer DORNIER GmbH. About 60 percent of all woven carbon and aramid fabrics, 50 percent of all glass fibre fabrics, two out of every three airbags and three out of four motor vehicle tyres worldwide are woven on machines built beside Lake Constance.
Dornier is one of the most successful textile machine builders in the world, and is recognised as a manufacturer of the highest quality and precision. What type of corporate culture is behind this success?
