ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, is organizing two important workshops in Mumbai and Ichalkaranji (India). Italy's response to the strong demand for technology by the local textile industry.

India is the world's second largest market in terms of value for textile machinery imports (amounting to 1.11 billion euros). Italian technology is especially in demand. In fact, 133 million euros worth of Italian textile machinery was sold to India in 2011, a 19% increase compared to the previous year.

“Our companies have been observing developments in India for some time now,” states Sandro Salmoiraghi, President of ACIMIT, “Business opportunities have multiplied, particularly in recent years, owing in part to the incentives set up by the Indian authorities to promote the modernization of local industry.”

To meet this growing demand for Made in Italy textile machinery, ACIMIT is organizing two important events with Indian textile manufacturers. Mumbai and Ichalkaranji will play host to two workshops to be held on May 8 and 10, at which various Italian machinery manufacturers will be presenting their latest technology proposals.
