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.

Setila AG, Widnau (Switzerland) manufactures polymers and synthetic fibres. The company concentrates in the production of special yarns which offer a wide variety of processing options in the weaving and knitwear sectors.
Founded in the 1920s and also known by the name "Viscosuisse", Setila AG began as a producer of viscose fibres and filament yarns, and later of Polyamide 66. Setila has been producing polyester yarns since 1966 and these are still its main product.
The opening of its own polymerization paved the way for flexible production. Besides the well-known standard polyester yarns, it spins cationic dyeable polyester and polybutylene terephthalate fibres. The product range also includes flameproof and spun-dyed yarns, which are valued by the automotive industry throughout Europe for their very high colour-fastness. The polyester yarn specialities are offered as POY, flat fully drawn and textured in a wide range of qualities.
