We supply sewing machine needles for domestic and industrial machines, as well as needles and hooks for bookbinding machines.

We personally take care of all problems in the sewing industry. In close cooperation with our Japanese mother company we are constantly developing new generations of sewing machine needles, in order to meet the increasing demands of modern sewing technologies.

In our markets we have built up a dense net of representations so that the supply of ORGAN needles is always guaranteed within short time. Please refer to our contact links on this page for the nearest sales point in your region or simply contact us.
