Based in Gateshead and part of a large multinational corporation, BMC is an energetic company focused on R&D and Design of high speed textile weaving machinery.
Our parent company Van de Wiele NV is a privately owned OEM with a workforce of 2000 worldwide and a turnover of €400 million, 10% of which is regularly re-invested into R&D. As a result we are entrusted with outstanding levels of support and investment.
Jacquard machinery is used in the production of intricate textile products by controlling complex woven patterns. These high-end textiles appeal to the fashion market, or are used in technical applications such as automotive airbags and carbon-fibre composites.
Historically Jacquard weaving traces its roots back to the 18th century, and is regarded as a precursor to the modern computer.
The modern Electronic Jacquard is a complex yet reliable machine that runs in harsh weaving-mill conditions at very high speeds. It is a complete harmony of mechanical, electronic and electro-magnetic disciplines.
We at BMC are responsible for the development of all Jacquards sold under the ‘Bonas’ brand. With many astute players and an aggressive commercial environment, only the best products backed up with large investments in manufacturing will succeed
