"A powerful weapon" - Textil Tabacow, Brazil

"We use the Kibby all the time. A great deal of business has been made viable due to the very fast sample production possible with the Kibby. Speed is certainly the principle advantage of the Kibby. Other advantages are the lack of interruption of production and the low cost of samples, because only a small amount of yarn is needed. For companies like Tabacow, that work mainly in the contract market, always developing personalised projects, the Kibby is without doubt a powerful weapon."

João Maiellaro, Textil Tabacow, Americana City, Brazil.

"This machine is excellent for reproducing Wilton and Axminster design samples," Wools of New Zealand, UK.

"I am responsible for the day to day running of the Wools of New Zealand Design and Development Centre pilot plant where we sample for carpet manufacturers from all over the world. Here in the UK we have a significant number of carpet sampling machines, 3 of which are Kibby pegboard machines.

We have a had a relationship with Modra Technology for at least 8 years and have used the Kibby Carpet Sampling Machine successfully in our Development Department. We have found that this machine is excellent for reproducing Wilton and Axminster design samples."

John Bentham, Pilot Plant Manager, Wools of New Zealand Design and Development Centre
