ACIMIT opens textile machinery training centre in Vietnam
ACIMIT (the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers), has announced the opening of the Italian training centre for textile machinery on November 29, 2017, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT). ACIMIT represents an industrial sector of around 300 manufacturers of textile machinery from Italy.

Following the signing of an agreement between the project’s main partners, the Italian Trade Agency and HCMUT, the inauguration ceremony of the Italian technology training centre for textile machinery in Vietnam was held in April 2016, with the participation, amongst others, of Alessandro Zucchi and Raffaella Carabelli, respectively president and past president of ACIMIT, partners in the project together with PISIE (International Polytechnic Institute for Industrial and Economic Development).

Financed by the Ministry for Economic Development, as part of the Extraordinary Programme for the promotion of Made in Italy – Country Project Vietnam, the project intends to support the development of the local textile industry through the realisation of a technology centre, specifically for the production of men’s socks and hosiery, outfitted with a complete line of Italian machinery and equipment. Notable participants in the project included Italian machinery manufacturers Bellini, Fadis, Gavazzi, Lawer, Lonati, and Mesdan.

ACIMIT president Alessandro Zucchi said, “With the start of operations for the training centre, our sector lays the groundwork for further business opportunities in an emerging market for the entire global textile machinery industry.”

ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli said, “I’m certain that the initiative will prove an excellent vehicle in promoting the image not only of individual Italian manufacturers who are participating by supplying machinery, but on Italy’s textile machinery industry as a whole.” (GK)
