ACIMIT and DKTE’S Textile & Engineering Institute Ichalkaranji (DKTE) have signed an agreement for the establishment of an Italian Training Centre at Ichalkaranji in India. 
 
By the signing of the agreement between the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) and the DKTE’S Textile & Engineering Institute, Ichalkaranji Dist. Kolhapaur, Maharashtra State, both the parties have agreed to implement the establishment of Italian Technology Centre for the benefit of Textile Sector in India.
 
The project includes providing on free using basis of textile machinery by interested manufacturers for a maximum period of 3 years, training activities provided by the same Italian Textile machinery companies adhering to the initiative, the distribution of ACIMIT’s digital technology manual containing Italian state-of-the-art technology, and the awarding of scholarships to three students selected by a committee of DKTE’S faculty in order to help them to pursue their professional training. 
 
The project will be coordinated by a working group representing ACIMIT, which agrees to participate in all engagements held both in Italy and India, and an Indian counterpart, Raretech, which will be responsible for coordinating all onsite activities.
 
The technology training center is a part of a larger initiative called Machines Italia, financed by the Ministry for Economic Development (MiSE), which has entrusted its organization to Federmacchine (the Federation of Italian Manufacturers of Capital Equipment). Machines Italia in India aims to lend its support to the internationalization efforts of companies in the sector, in one of the world’s most intensely developed industrial areas.
 
“Through this technology training centre, ACIMIT intends to strengthen the profitable relationship which already exists with India’s textile industry”, ACIMIT’s President Mr. Sandro Salmoiraghi said. 
 
Salmoiraghi continues, “The market in India is currently the third most important destination for our exports (over the first half of 2012, we exported 58 million euros worth of machinery). This initiative aims to increase everyone’s awareness, of the important synergy with the territory’s textile manufacturers, represented by the world of academia. The benefits in terms of image will be felt not just by individual participating Italian businesses supplying machinery, but for the whole of Italy’s textile sector.”
