French textile machinery leaders to exhibit at Turkey fair
Mar '12
French machinery manufacturers have been actively preparing ITM 2012 which is taking place in Istanbul, April 21-24. They are used to come to ITM and, more generally, to Turkey which they consider a strategic market. Their latest regional collective action took place last October 2010 in Gaziantep (Turkey) and Alepo (Syria) where they organized two conferences, in Gaziantep mainly focused on the carpet industry which is so important in this fast growing city of Eastern Turkey.

For Evelyne CHOLET, the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association's (UCMTF) Secretary General, “next ITM will be a major opportunity to meet once more our customers, communicate, at the highest level, about their needs to compete successfully on the ever changing global market, to introduce must-have new products, to have highly reliable, low cost and eco-friendly processes”.

The collective, highly visible, actions are in addition to each company permanent organization, through local agents and offices.

Christian GUINET, President of the Association's promotion commission and manager of STAÜBLI, says he is much impressed by the dynamism of the mostly family - run companies working for their long term future and that he will be personally very happy to have at ITM 2012 a new opportunity to meet such entrepreneurs.

It is important to remind that France is the 6th textile machinery exporter worldwide. Together the 35 manufacturers' annual exports exceed 1 billion Euros (1.3 billion USD).

France is a main regional supplier of textile machinery, for example the 4th supplier for Turkey.

Dollfus & Muller will introduce at ITM 2012 its new compacting felt for knit finishing with major evolutions versus its existing products in order to serve better the dyeing houses. The new compacting felt quality brings a special care to the fabrics thanks to its smoothest surface, an excellent guiding and the best compacting rate in relations with the new exclusive compacting felt design. Furthermore, Dollfus & Muller will display its durable printing dryer belts. In Turkey, already many printers of fine fabrics, scarves, flags are using the Dollfus & Muller printing dryer belts for their non marking surfaces which can avoid as well the particles on the back side.

At ITM 2012, LAROCHE will show a full range of products made from their latest technologies. After 20 years of experience in Airlay technology Laroche will notably introduce the new “FLEXILOFT+” Airlay machine and the latest innovations in used clothes recycling processes.

At ITM 2012, Spoolex will present its Calemard and Decoup+ product lines for web products processing and handling, on the standof its Turkish agent TEKSTIL SERVIS.
