Textile Hub Saxony
The textile region Saxony is a vibrant and highly innovative network of committed companies, motivated employees as well as outstanding research and educational institutions.
Around 2,500 materials scientists and engineers research and develop innovative lightweight materials just in Dresden alone. With a tradition of more than 200 years of textile manufacturing in the region, Chemnitz has evolved into the center of textile-based lightweight construction. Such renowned institutions as the Saxon Textile Research Institute (STFI) with its new Center for Textile-Based Lightweight Construction and the Cetex Institute for Textile and Processing Machines are working together with Chemnitz University of Technology in the “Alliance of Textile Lightweighting (ATL)” to research new developments in textile engineering and technology as well as in structural and system-based lightweight construction. The Federal Cluster of Excellence “Merge Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures (MERGE)” at Chemnitz University of Technology has made Saxony the home of Germany’s only research cluster in this field.
Over the past few years, the Saxony Economic Development Corporation (WFS) has organized several business trips to foreign countries around the world. During these trips, many different cooperation projects between Saxon and foreign companies were initiated. To continue and intensify these cooperative activities, European decision makers and managers from companies as well as institutions active in the textile and composite sector are welcome to join us on an exclusive virtual business trip through Saxony.
