Customers visit St. Meer’s spinning plant

The complete Rieter rotor spinning mill, St.Meer International Industry & Trade Co., Ltd. belongs to Qingdao St. Meer Group and is one of the leading manufacturers of rotor yarns in North China.

The first fully automatic Rieter rotor line in north China

The plant is located on the west coast in the Qingdao Export Processing Industrial Park with the rotor spinning mill covering an area of 10 000 m2 andthe modern cotton bonded warehouse also occupying 10 000 m2. With the introduction of the world's most advanced fully automated spinning equipment R 60, the plant is able to produce high quality Ne 7 to Ne 40 rotor yarns.

The Rieter yarn license for high-quality Com4®rotor yarns thus offers St. Meer the optimal promotion platform to win new customers for rotor yarns in future and to develop customer relationships.

St. Meer set up its spinning mill in 2010 with the installation of 3 R 60 rotor spinning machines. To date, 6 complete R 60 rotor lines have been installed. By the end of 2013, the number of R 60s will be increased to 12.
