Oct '12
India Itme 2012, which takes place from 2 to 7 December 2012 in the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre (BEC) is the largest exhibition of its kind in India and is expected to attract over 125000 textile visitors. Picanol will take this opportunity to present all its latest high-tech weaving machines and to underline its prominent position in the Indian market by showing four high-tech weaving machines on its booth. Besides the recently introduced airjet, the OMNIplus Summum also state of the art rapier machines like the OptiMax and the GTXplus will be on display.

In addition to these four machines, one Picanol Jacquard TERRYplus 800 weaving machine will be on display on the Stäubli booth, and an OptiMax jacquard weaving machine will be on display at the Bonas/Van De Wiele booth. The Picanol booth is located at the Open Bay Area, K1.
Picanol has been successfully serving the Indian market since 1956. In view of the potential and expected growth of the Indian market, Picanol decided to set up its own organization in India early 2008 in order to more actively support its local activities. Since the start of its presence, but particularly during the last decade, Picanol has been focussing strongly on local sales and service activities.
In recent years, Picanol India has seen a steady growth in its market share, which has led to it becoming the leading provider of weaving machines on the local market today. India is a market of crucial importance for Picanol as it is one of the key textile markets in the world.
As part of its further commitment to the Indian Market and marking a new milestone in India, Picanol inaugurated new headquarters in downtown New Delhi in August 2012. Next to the main office in Delhi, regional offices in Mumbai and Coimbatore are proof of a strong Picanol presence in the Indian market with a professional team of 35 people committed to serve Picanol customers.
With the broadest product range on the market, improved local services and considerable presence, Picanol remains highly committed to India and plans to be the leading provider of weaving systems for the entire Indian weaving sector.
