An introduction to the Academy

As a partner of leading textile machinery builders and users, Groz-Beckert also offers a wide range of services, from targeted application advice, tests and laboratory services, to production of small and special series. Groz-Beckert also supports its customers and partners with product, application and basic knowledge within the textile value chain. Since 2012, this part of the extensive range of services has had its own name: The Groz-Beckert Academy has made it its mission to pass on knowledge, to share experiences and to make know-how and expertise accessible.

The Groz-Beckert Academy offers an extensive training program relating to basic knowledge and application knowledge for all Groz-Beckert products. In a combination of practice and theory, technical knowledge and market knowledge are passed on. All training is offered in German and English. Courses are available in other languages on request. For the training courses on offer, selected topics with a specific focus can be addressed at the request of the customer.

The training courses offered by the Groz-Beckert Academy is aimed at both textile specialists and high level professionals who want to deepen or refresh their knowledge. The Groz-Beckert Academy also offers courses for beginners and specialists from other sectors looking to learn the basics in the field of textiles.

To pass on both theory and practical knowledge, the Academy uses the entire spectrum of the Technology and Development Center (TEZ) based in Albstadt. The center houses a variety of technology and laboratories over a usable area of around 25,000 m2 for the key technologies in the manufacture and joining of textile fabrics. The TEZ thus provides the optimal conditions for passing on knowledge and creating the textile future together. Alternatively, the Groz-Beckert Academy also offers courses on-site at the customer.

All trainers at the Academy have a wealth of practical experience in textile technology, as well as in providing specialized training and further education. Meet our masters in their field for knitting, weaving, felting, tufting, carding or sewing, and benefit from their experience. As a participant, our trainers will ensure that you are optimally equipped for your tasks in the textile world.

All training courses in the TEZ include lunch and beverages. Our staff restaurant offers diverse dishes served buffet style – including a variety of vegetarian options.
