Sustainability – TMAS Training & kick off!

In 2022 TMAS launches a sustainability project that aims to raise the level of knowledge within sustainability among our members as well as to increase the understanding of how we, as textile machinery builders, can contribute to a more sustainable textile production. This training opportunity will give you an orientation within the area as well as insight to the sustainability project of TMAS. Employees at TMAS member companies are welcome to join!
