Bhiwandi to host textile machinery expo 'ITMACH' in Jan
Nov '13
The booming powerloom mega cluster Bhiwandi will host its first textile machinery exhibition in January 2014. ITMACH 2014 scheduled from January 22-24 will showcase wide range of latest textile machinery and technology at Indian Corporation premises in Bhiwandi on the National Highway 3 at the periphery of India’s commercial capital Mumbai.

Bhiwandi, in spite of being among India’s largest weaving cluster have not received its due importance due to its unorganized structure in the past. However, with the change in business dynamics in textile trade, the cluster has taken up huge modernization of technology off late, thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of the business community and government support in terms of Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS).

The growth of the textile manufacturing in Bhiwandi has also helped developing textile industry in the surrounding areas like Ulhasnagar, Badlapur, Ambernath, Dombivli, Tarapur etc that house knitting, processing, embroidery, garmenting, and specialty yarn industry. Also, the area got boost in manufacturing as the industry moved out of the erstwhile textile manufacturing powerhouse Mumbai.

With the TUFS being on the avail again after the Cabinet Committee’s approval on late August, the industry is again on the upbeat mood for investment. ITMACH 2014 would offer a platform for the technology suppliers to showcase their products and to meet potential customers face to face.

The event would be the meeting place for business discussions for a wide spectrum of potential and existing customers from western India covering Bhilwara in the north and Belgaum in the south which includes large textile clusters like Ahemadabad, Surat, Malegaon, Dhule, Burhanpur,  Ichalkaranji, Islampur, Kolhapur, Sholapur and covers entire textile manufacturing value chain.

ITMACH 2014 will be hosted in a modern warehouse of Indian Corporation that will be converted to a state-of-the-art exhibition facility. Being located on the Mumbai-Nashik highway (NH-3) or Eastern Express highway, exhibitor and trade visitors would have easy access to the venue from Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.
