Italian textile machinery manufacturers are presenting their technologies in China
Italian textile machinery manufacturers are set to present specific customised machinery destined for the manufacture of Technical Textiles and Nonwovens in Guangzhou, China on October 10, 2013
The symposium, organised jointly by ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, and the ICE, the Italian Trade Promotion Agency for the promotion and internationalisation of Italian Companies, aims to promote Italian technology to raise the awareness among Chinese operators. It follows after only few months a similar presentation in Nanjing.
Chinese operators will have an opportunity to become acquainted with the latest innovations and technologies for the various phases of the production processes. They can also turn to ACIMIT’s website (button Technical Textiles and Nonwovens) to find relevant information on the matching technology partner to proved the required solutions for their specific needs.
Raffaella Carabelli, President of ACIMIT stated: “Investments in infrastructure, the filtration sector, as well as the medical and personal hygiene sectors are pushing Chinese demand for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens for the coming years”. She is also convinced that the second symposium is a sign of appreciation of Italian technology in China.
As we all know, the Chinese market still represents the primary export destination for Italian textile machinery manufacturers and the volume export in the first five months of the ongoing year amounts to EUR 130 million or a share of 20 % of the sector’s exports, however the grand total of all exports fell 24 % in the same period.
The list of participating ACIMIT members at the symposium in Guangzhou are Biancalani, Bianco, Cormatex, Dell’Orco & Villani, Itema, Loptex, and Roj. ACIMIT estimates that, by contrast of the few participants, that around 1000 Italian textile machinery manufacturers are active in the field of Technical Textiles and Nonwovens and around 50 are engaged in the manufacture of machinery for nonwovens.
