Turkish textile players explore German technology

Around 600 Turkish textile industry players participated in the two conferences organized by VDMA in Istanbul and Gaziantep in Turkey during current month, to learn how they can utilize German technology to counter severe competition extended by their counterparts in Asia.
 
The conference extended the 25 German textile machinery producers, who presented their state-of-the-art technology at the event, with an opportunity to close deals with Turkish buyers.
 
In his inaugural speech VDMA Textile Machinery Association Chairman Fritz P. Mayer said contributing a 30-35 percent share in Turkey’s overall textile machinery imports, Germany stands to be Turkey’s leading technology partner.
 
He added that it is a matter of pride that during 2012 Germany’s textile machinery exports to Turkey exceeded the latter’s overall textile machinery imports from other countries.
 
Last year, around 30-35 percent of Turkey’s overall textile machinery imports were sourced from Germany, while Italy and Switzerland each individually contributed 15 percent of the same.
 
During first eight months of the current year, Germany’s textile machinery exports to Turkey rose by 12 percent year-on-year to € 248 million.
 
Focusing on quality enhancement, building personalized brands and development of technical textiles, the Turkish textile industry is gearing up to meet future challenges, Mr. Mayer said.
 
One way the Turkish textile sector can beat Asian competition is by enhancing production of technical textiles for construction, automobile and medical applications, VDMA said. However, it added that as in the past the Turkish textile sector has remained highly focused on garments and home textiles, and knowledge and acquaintances with research institutes, universities and user industries would have to be developed to achieve the goal.
 
Inviting Turkish textile producers to use their technical centres to develop new marketable textile applications, the German textile machinery firms participating in the two events portrayed themselves as professional and reliable partners bringing about the desired change.
 
The user-oriented technology lectures at the conference laid great emphasis on the energy and material efficiency issues, and VDMA supported this approach by publishing its Blue Competence Energy Efficiency Guide in Turkish language at the two conferences.
 
According to VDMA, the two conferences would bolster the cordial trade relations between Turkey and Germany.
