Since the invention in 1941 of the spinning of polyester Setila has manufactured many hundreds of thousands of tons in its various European factories.
This is the main area of use for polyester filament yarn. Here, major research and development efforts undertaken over the last ten years by Setila, have resulted in the development of synthetic fabrics which have a superior handle, drape and appearance. It is also possible to produce fabrics with Setila® yarns that resemble those made from natural fibres. In addition, new innovative yarns have given textile manufacturers the means to invent new and original fabrics; microfibre for parkas, polar fleece fabrics and soft velvets, to name but a few.
developed for sporting applications have naturally extended their scope
into leisurewear. Garments made from polyester possess characteristics
that ensure their ever-growing success: softness and drape, comfortable,
pleasant to the touch and elegant.
Traditionally, Setila has developed fabrics for use in the home, such as upholstery, drapes and net-curtains. Alongside this range of Tergal® fabrics, which are still used in nets and curtains, there are now articles in Pontella® and Pontella Micro®. These products are greatly appreciated for their easy-care, their appearance retention and their exceptional handle, which is similar to that given by natural fibers.

Setila AG in Widnau (Decora, POY, Cops) has not been able to find a solution with a new investor to guarantee continuation and therefore is now definitely shutting down the production at the end of September 2005. Below please find the official good bye lines from Widnau.
The management and the staff of SETILA AG Widnau Switzerland, would like to express all our gratitude for these numerous years of the loyal cooperation in spite of the difficulties we had to handle with. The long history of our businesses finishes with stopping the production end of this month.
Of course we all at Swicofil would have wished a solution with Widnau continuing to be the production site.
Setila SA in Valence (FDY, POY) is a separate legal entity and as such not hit by the situation of Widnau. Swicofil will continue to sell the rawwhite Valence products.
For all current Swicofil sales which came out of Setila AG Widnau we have worked out a substitution plan and we will be providing the customers in the same good tradition with products of an excellent quality and an impeccable service. Looking forward to continue serving you with polyester textile filament yarns both in rawwhite and spundyed.
