Italian textile machinery makers showcase at Guangzhou
Oct '13
A highly successful outcome and confirmed expectations for Italy’s textile machinery manufacturers present at the technology symposium on technical textiles and nonwovens held in Guangzhou on October 10th.

Organized by the ICE – the Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT - the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, the event oversaw the participation of around seventy Chinese textile manufacturers and roughly one hundred local operators.

While confirming its high concentration of businesses active in the traditional textile industry, the province of Guandong has also developed the nonwovens sector (especially products for the medical, personal hygiene and building sectors). Indeed, around 700 manufacturers are currently operating in this sector in the province.

Following the ritual salutations by representatives of the Italian delegation and local associations (Guandong Province Textile Association e Guandong Nonwovens Association) who collaborated in the event’s success, 5 Italian producers (Biancalani, Dell’Orco & Villani, Itema, Loptex, Roj) had the opportunity to showcase their technological offer and develop contacts with local manufacturers who took part in the event through B2B meetings.

“We’re especially satisfied for having organized this event in Guangzhou,” commented ACIMIT. “A great many manufacturers based in the province of Guandong already operate in the niche sectors touched on by the symposium, and their numbers are growing rapidly. This initial approach was therefore extremely important in allowing local businesses to become acquainted with the validity of Italian technology, even in the field of nonwovens and industrial textiles.”

General information on Italy’s textile machinery sector and ACIMIT

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers (employing close to 12,000 people), exporting machinery for an overall value of roughly 2.4 billion euros, of which 80% are exported. The quality of Italy’s textile technology is highlighted by the large number of countries in which Italian machinery is sold, with approximately 130 nations worldwide.

Creativity, technology, reliability and quality are the characteristics that have made Italian textile machinery manufacturers global leaders.
