Italian textile machinery at Indo Inter Tex Indonesia
The upcoming 2016 edition of Indo Inter Tex, to be held in Jakarta next April 27 – 30, will feature the usual significant contingent of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, marking Italy’s interest in this important Asian market. Specifically, 10 Italian machinery manufacturers will be exhibiting in the common exhibition area hosted by the Italian Trade Agency and by ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers
The following ACIMIT associated companies will be present at the ICE-ACIMIT Punto Italia: Carù, Crosta, Durst, Fadis, Ferraro, Monti-Mac, Pugi Group, Testa, Textape, Triveneta.
In terms of Italian exports, Indonesia is one of the most relevant markets in the area, with roughly EUR 24 million worth of Italian machinery sold over the first eleven months of 2015. In spite of a drop recorded, compared to the same period for 2014, Italian manufacturers believe that the Indonesian market is full of potential, and ready to develop business opportunities. “The textile industry is a driving force for the Indonesian economy,” states Raffaella Carabelli, president of ACIMIT. “In recent years, the local government has supported an overall modernization of existing technology. However, we believe that further investments are required on the part of Indonesian manufacturers in order to allow them to establish themselves fully in world markets and increase the Country’s global share of exports in the textile and garment sector.”
Italy’s participation at Indo Inter Tex falls squarely within an intense programme of activities aimed at promoting the Italian textile machinery sector in Indonesia. Among the most recent activities promoted in partnership with the Italian Trade Agency are the various technology workshops in Indonesia’s primary textile manufacturing districts, along with participation in local trade fair events, and a host of incoming missions in Italy for the Country’s textile operators.
ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 companies (employing close to 12000 people) and producing machinery for an overall value of about EUR 2.5 billion, with exports amounting to 84 % of total sales. The high number of countries, namely the number is around 130 worldwide, underlines the quality of Italian textile technology and its creativity, sustainable technology, reliability and are the characteristics that have made Italy a global leader in the manufacturing of textile machinery.
