Chemnitz, 11th March 2016

The Saxon Research Institute for Textile Fabrics (STFI), Chemnitz, celebrates its topping out ceremony.

The Institute is extending the capacities by a Center for „Light Weight Structures”. On a site of about 2,100 sqm in Chemnitz, a new test center with conference space is constructed.

“We are investing with own efforts 3.8 Million Euro to be able to meet the growing needs for Research capacities in this segment.”, is explaining STFI’s CEO Andreas Berthel. “Here, we will locate a carbon fiber and a fibre-reinforced Technology center added by an integrated testing laboratory for light weight structures. These are the best conditions for the development of new technologies and the testing under semi-industrial requirements.
