This March 2013, more than 100 Indian textile producers in DELHI and more than 200 in SURAT attended the seminars organized by the French Trade Commission-Ubifrance & UCMTF (the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers’ Association), under the patronage of the Embassy of France in India and the Office of the Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India. Such a success, although not a surprise, was above expectations.

Five main themes were covered:
- Spinning and yarn processing with speakers from N. SCHLUMBERGER on long staple fibre processes, VERDOL on yarn processing particularly for technical yarns for such applications as tire cord, carpet and glass yarns, twisting and cabling and SUPERBA on their leading technology of heat-setting line for carpet yarns
- Weaving technology with speakers from STÄUBLI the world leader for dobbies, cam motions and Jacquard machines
- Dyeing and Finishing. Three machinery manufacturers CALLEBAUT de BLICQUY and ROUSSELET ROBATEL the innovators on very high density dyeing and ecology associated with cost savings and DOLLFUS & MULLER, on how to improve the feeling, the shrinkage of woven and knitted fabrics
- Air conditioning and air engineering with speakers from AESA, well known for the perfect humidification of textile plants
- The recycling and sustainable solutions for textile waste by the pioneer, LAROCHE Company.

The seminar was inaugurated in Delhi by H.E. Mr. François RICHIER, Ambassador of France in India. Mar AB JOSHI, Textile Commissioner graced the occasion at Surat. A study by TECHNOPAK was also released at this occasion.

The audience was very interested and many questions were asked.

Then the French delegation visited the ATIRA centre at Ahmedabad.

Evelyne CHOLET, UCMTF Secretary General, was very impressed by the projects the Indian companies are working on. Once more, she had the opportunity to see that India is a major player in the textile industry and, more and more, in the technical textiles. She analyzes that growth opportunities are considerable as these industries meet the requirements of their domestic markets for higher quality products and stand up the worldwide competition to take advantage of the globalization of the markets.

The French textile machinery manufacturers, for already a long time they have considered India as a lead market. Very strong ties with industrialists in India already exist and are considered as long time partnerships.

Thanks to local representatives, the regular organization of seminars (2007, 2010 and 2013) in the main Indian textile areas and the participation at many shows, the French machinery manufacturers can offer the service of local partners. Not only their machines are state of the of art technologically but the services include quick assistance, spare parts availability, special design, consulting services in such sectors as safety rules and energy savings.
