Navis TubeTex, a leading provider of high technology finishing machinery to the global textile industry, has announced the purchase of Gaston Systems. Using proprietary foam generation and application systems, Gaston Systems has an international reputation for offering high quality and innovative technologies to satisfy long-term sustainability requirements.

Gaston Systems continues to develop new dyeing and finishing technologies. Applications for indigo, reactive and other dyeing concepts have a measurable positive environmental impact. Gaston Systems’ technology for indigo dyeing eliminates waste water at the end of the manufacturing process while driving down energy usage. According to one of the leading denim jean brands, the foam process requires 60 per cent less energy and mitigates by the same percentage. This acquisition brings together two industry leading companies with complimentary technologies in serving the global textile machinery marketplace, Navis TubeTex said in a media statement.

“I have known and worked with Navis TubeTex for many years.  Our systems are frequently integrated with Navis Tubetex finishing lines making this the right fit for future growth and global expansion. I am very excited by the possibilities as a member of the team,” Christoph Aurich, managing director of Gaston Systems, said in a statement.

“We are very excited to expand our product line with the addition of Gaston Systems precision technology in the application of chemicals to a wide variety of substrates. This strengthens the Navis Tubetex business offerings that keep our customers competitive, while continuing with our internal targets to minimise and reduce waste from our industry,” Will Motchar, president and CEO of Navis TubeTex, said.
