ITMACH Bhiwandi opened with a renewed vigour and optimism today. True to its reputation, the 3-day fair set the stage for investment and newer opportunities right on the first day, the organisers said in a media statement.

Over 125 exhibitors, primarily, machinery and technology providers from the post-spinning, weaving preparatory, weaving, dyeing, printing and processing as well as garmenting sectors are exhibiting on area of 10,000 square metres at the fair, which is being organised by ITMACH India in association with Textile Excellence.

The visitors flow peaked by noon and by the end of the day the exhibitors reported a good bank of queries on day one itself. “We were not really expecting much considering the venue being in Bhiwandi. However, we have to say we entertained a series of positive queries today,” said an excited R Anbazhahan, managing director, Reiniger Welker.

Earlier, inaugurating the expo, Bhiwandi Mayor Tushar Chowdhury said, “ITMACH Bhiwandi is pioneering developments within the textile sector. The machines on display demonstrate a worldview. The industry here definitely takes an effort to go and fetch improved machinery from the world over, but bringing them back home and that too solely for a cluster is definitely a commendable work.”

“ITMACH Bhiwandi understands the importance of firsthand experience and our effort has always been to get the international developments of the textile industry closer to home. Promoting the development of textile clusters in Western India has always been our priority and ITMACH is just a stepping stone of our efforts. Uplifting the textile clusters and bringing them face to face with the bigger developments of the industry, proved beneficial the last year. This year is a renewed effort for the same,” remarked an enthusiastic Arvind Semlani, director, ITMACH India.

Visitors from Malegaon, Surat, Ichalkaranji, Kolhapur, Belgaum, Tarapur, and Bhiwandi dropped in to meet the technology providers on day one. “The show is set on a smooth step by step progress. And it is certainly an interesting feeling to come and interact with the industry and have such quality business discussions here at Bhiwandi,” said Manchhalal K Jain, director, Shree Daksh Jyot Silk Mills, Bhiwandi.
