SETEX GmbH History

Founded in 1993, SETEX GmbH would permanently transform the textile finishing industry by introducing a new automation technology just one year later. The company has continuously expanded its product portfolio with new modules ever since. The goal: To be able to offer a complete solution to automate entire production departments. At the heart of this approach is the comprehensive and customizable OrgaTEX software solution.

Continuous innovation, a high level of commitment from system partners and steady expansion of its international presence have made SETEX one of the world’s leading companies in the textile industry.
