HASGROUP, established in 1984 in Turkey as a solution provider and machine supplier for textile industry, continues its healthy growth in the local, as well as in the global market. Today the Group’s machines are run in 47 countries from Americas to Far East.

Thanks to a working environment in EU norms and production at world standards, HAS GROUP continues its researches in order to offer new solutions for ever-changing customer needs. Laser cutting, CNC-controlled frames, CNC lathe-processing centers make sure that all machines are manufactured with micron precision.
HASGROUP focuses its activities on 4 fields, namely textile finishing, carpet-back coating, technical textiles and special projects.
In textile finishing stenter frames, sanforizing, denim finishing line, raising, shearing, brushing, compacting, drying and tumbler machines work to the satisfaction of their users in denim, woven, knitted and non-woven areas.
The Group collected the fruits of long term R&D work on denims, by booking a recent deal with Vicunha Textiles for their factories in Brasil, Argentina and Ecuador. Stenter frames are equipped with last generation hydrolic foulards. Sanforizing machines will sustain the customer’s good fabric quality thanks to state-of-the-art water spraying units, automatic shrinking control devices with weft straightener and pick-counter.
Technical textiles and carpet-back coating machines are the products of know-how and technology transfer gained by long years’ experience in textile machinery manufacturing. In Gaziantep / Turkey, where 30% of global woven carpet manufacturing capacity exists, HASGROUP customers enjoy the machine quality and after-sales services. The latest deliveries to the leading carpet-manufacturers ‘’Kaplan Kardeşler’’ and ‘’Tümer Halı’’ testify the satisfaction of the market with the Group’s machinery.
HASGROUP machines provide a single finishing line that combines wall-to-wall and woven carpet lines. Felt and action-back laminations, gel foaming application and artificial grass manufacturing can be made on the same line. Space, energy and labor savings are additional benefits of the users.
