Our company

Under the brand Sant’Andrea Novara we have been producing since 1928 high-quality textile machinery for combing, recombing and spinning preparation of all long staple fibres.

The high level of technological innovation of the thousands of machines installed all over the world has significantly contributed to the evolution of the wool sector itself.

In September 2014, the Ploner group (already Tecnomeccanica and Coppa) incorporates Sant’Andrea Textile Machines and acquires the historical brand “Sant’Andrea Novara”, while keeping the production in the preparation lines of Novara’s plant.


The new company’s structure provides our customers with the acquired know-how and offers a cutting-edge service meeting all market requirements.

A critical factor for the company’s success is Sant’Andrea Novara’s proximity to Biella wool district, a leader in quality and well-known throughout the textile industry.
