CRETES offers a wide range of machines and equipment for the textile industry, from standard components to custom designed solutions.

After the acquisition of OFFICINE CAPPELLINI from Pistoia, Italy, the expanding cylinders (or simply expanders) are produced and commercialized by CRETES. The main purpose of the expander is to straighten the fabric and to remove wrinkles.
