Answers to Uzbek industrial needs

The participating Belgian companies will interact with the Uzbek textile industry to select effective technologies that meet industrial needs. Belgian technology providers will support the Uzbek textile industry in the achievement of its strategic goals to reduce raw material waste, energy and water consumption and to increase competitiveness.

Belgian companies show strong track record

The Belgian machinery industry, including its textile machinery, is the fastest growing industrial sector measured by employment in Belgium. In the past 3 years an annual growth rate of 4% was achieved in this sector, while its world market share rose with 10%. An important driver for that performance was the increased pace of investments in the machinery industry over the 1998-2012 period.

R&D and energy efficiency

To position its customers in the pole, the Belgian machining industry is strongly R&D driven. It invests 7% of its added value on R&D and employs over 10% of the total Belgian research head count. The industry strongly accelerated its research efforts on energy efficiency in the past decade and has now achieved an average energy consumption reduction for its products of 15%.

The long term strategy directs the Belgian machining industry towards continuous strategic and open innovation in order to accelerate its product development rate and to provide its customers with leading edge technology. The Belgian machining industry is the nation’s 3th biggest exporter.
