Textilio.com launched a fully integrated value-added online marketplace for the textile industry at Heimtextil in Frankfurt yesterday. The world market exchange for raw materials, filaments, yarns, raw woven cloth and semi-finished products aims to create a global trading community. Simultaneous with the online launch, textilio.com has announced a corporate merger with German Intex Consulting GmbH, a manufacturer of textile production planning and control systems. Textilio was founded by Swiss-based quality monitoring systems group Zellweger Luwa, and the Gherzi Textile Organisation.
