The last edition of ITMA ASIA + CITME provided positive indications for Italian exhibitors, in spite of the current uncertain economic outlook. The Italian green label certification initiative was greeted with special appreciation.

“The third edition of ITMA Asia + CITME, which came to a close on June 16 in Shanghai confirmed our expectations,” states Sandro Salmoiraghi, president of Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT). 

“The leading markets for our manufacturers were largely stalled over this first part of the year, and a general mood of economic uncertainty could be perceived even during the trade fair in Shanghai.

Investments in new technologies are proceeding very slowly in all markets.” However, the current economic situation did not prevent Italian businesses from playing an essential role at ITMA Asia + CITME 2012, with a total of 115 exhibitors representing Italy. 

In terms of occupied surface area, Italy came in third overall (7%), covering a net total of 4700 square meters, behind the Chinese exhibitors (60% net surface area) and Germans (9%).

In particular, both Chinese and foreign visitors appreciated the commitment of the Italian textile machinery industry on the issue of sustainability. To this end, at the usual ACIMIT press conference held during the event, the Association presented the ACIMIT green label certification.

As Salmoiraghi explains, “The self-certification process for energy and environmental performances for each piece of machinery was provided by RINA, an international certification body, which, together with ACIMIT, defined and validated the specifications for the issuing of green labels, and is also responsible for monitoring their correct application, thereby guaranteeing the accuracy of the specified performance indications.”
