Mr. Bülent Endez, owner of the Pijon Textile answered questions of Fair World Home Textile Magazine for Evteks issue.
What will you say about Evteks and Heimtextil Frankfurt in terms of visitors?
First I would like to say that both events are the largest exhibitions in home textile industry. They attract many visitors from all around the world. Now there are people from all over the world who are waiting the exhibitions in the increasingly globalized industry. If we need to say something about Evteks, it is a proud event. Visitors find a gradually developing and well-arranged exhibition every year.Sure we have some deficiencies but I believe that we’ll make up them as soon as possible. First of all, I think that there is lack of promotion. Evteks can’t make enough promotion.That is why it has fewer visitors than Heimtextil. The only way to enhance it is promotion. TV, magazines, press conferences... Even customer satisfaction is a kind of ad. I believe that Evteks increase number of visitors this year and next year.
Q - when we compare them to each other, which one is in the forefront, can you tell us briefly?
Both of them are on par with each other. Turkish and European home textile industries shares concurrently same seasons. As you see, knowledge isn’t limited with just one person or a company, now everyone knows and learns something. Both of the exhibitions are in the forefront. Now productions are so familiar and similarities on products have been increasing day by day. Of course, two fairs are successful. As long as exhibitors and visitors are pleased with them, they will achieve to be in the forefront. It is disputable which one is better but as long as everyone do quality business that represent very well their companies, exhibitions will have better.
Q - This is first time that you participate in Evteks, so what reason do you decide it?
Yes, it will be first for us, the reason behind the decision is my son, Levent Endez. I hope that his wish will yield good results and I believe that we will have a good event.
I believe that Evteks increase number of visitors this year and next year.
Q - Do you have any special preparation?
We don’t have any special work. We already try to keep product quality and innovative studies at the highest level. I think that our products shape the market. We are a company which makes production by following closely what consumer and the industry need. So we will attend Evteks with the current product range.
Q - You moved to your new facility, which applications do you make related to roller blind there?
In new facility, we decided to gather all process of production under a single roof.After yarn turn into product in weaving loom, it needs finish process, so we included a random-access machine to our facility. As you know, the most meritorious part of roller blind and zebra products is finish process, so we do it in our own facility.
