Silberbauer Textiltechnik GmbH is a family establishment in its fifth generation operated by Ulrich Achleitner. The successor, the sixth generation, is already in-firm training.

Ribbons have been produced since 1848.

Formerly traditional tapes such as twill ribbons made of cotton and linen were distributed in Austria. In the last 25 years the product range has been modified continually and radically.

Nowadays technical tapes made of glass, polyester, aramid and recently carbon fiber are produced on advanced production machines.

The products are distributed to all 5 continents.

The most important groups of customers are machine builders, paper machine producers and the electrical industry.

The production halls are extended constantly. In the production halls people do not just weave. Tapes and nets are produced by warp-knitting machines. For 20 years cords, strings, sleeves and rickrack have been produced by plaiting machines. Here also the trend goes to technical applications too.

To follow the trend and to satisfy the wishes of our customers, now polyester ribbons of high quality are imprinted with the help of digital printers.

In 2015 we received the “HELIOS”, an award for working energy-efficient, which is further proof that we have followed an advanced path with both of our production facilities in Groß Siegharts.

Currently further developments for interesting applications are proceeding.
