Dear CINET Members & Friends,

It has been some time ago that we shared our views and experiences in the professional textile care market (PTC). In the beginning of this year it seemed we were heading for an after Corona area and economic recovery. However, Corona is again very much disrupting the business. Also without lockdowns, turnover is hampering and cost are increasing exceptionally fast. On top of that, Corona is changing customer demand structurally and requiring PTC companies to adapt their business & services models at short notice. Clear decisions and choices are to be made by each PTC entrepreneur. Only professional entrepreneurs will survive.
