Sewing machines have a long history. The industrial revolution led to special solutions for textile processing in the 18th century. An increase in demand for new applications led to very specific industrial sewing machines. With its continuous innovative development of existing sewing machines, Habraken has taken the lead at an international level.
Habraken’s people have a unique understanding of how industrial sewing machines work and what they can do. They can help you find the right sewing machine for your application. With training and support, you’ll learn the finer points of this machine and this expertise will give you a competitive edge. You’ll see this when you watch our company video ».
