Malwee Malhas Ltda.

What do you think about Muratec?

Mr. Weege

We are very satisfied. The partnership among the manufacturer of the equipment, the producer of the yarn and our mill is evident. This relationship is unique, providing us greater yarn and product quality.
We verified ourselves, that the installation of your equipments in our suppliers had excellent quality, maintaining the attention to the same ones, so that we could provide our market with more sophisticated products. We also verified Muratec's unique consumer research which allows needed customer assistance in this market segment.

Please tell us reason of your selection of VORTEX.

Mr. Weege

We always have looked for potential innovation in our products and continued improvement of product quality. The VORTEX yarn provided us great progress in the quality of our product lines, strengthening our partnership. Also, from our experience, we know that VORTEX is a technology that adds value to our products.
The VORTEX technology has brought great benefits especially in products produced from cotton and viscose. We didn't change our production processes to use the products with VORTEX yarn. On the contrary, VORTEX has adapted to our existing process, providing higher quality for our products. VORTEX yarn was a solution for quality problems that we experienced when using conventional yarn.

What is the value of Muratec and VORTEX for you?

Mr. Weege

The final quality of the specific products produced from the VORTEX yarn, is a significant improvement for Malwee, especially for 100% cotton yarns.

What is your expectation to Muratec and its VORTEX?

Mr. Weege

We hope Muratec will maintain their superior quality and attention to our suppliers and spinning companies, who are constantly looking for innovation. Also, to continue to do field research with the knit producer, assisting them to meet their needs in the market.
