During the Grand Opening event, Itema will proudly unveil its latest advancements in weaving technology to allow its Customers to produce high quality fabrics and achieve maximum success.

Albini is one of the oldest and most loyal Customers of Itema. Albini Group has eight plants (five in Italy), with a total of more than 1300 employees worldwide. 
Mr. Albini is also President of Milano Unica, the international textile fair of the finest quality products from Italian and European textile manufacturers. Other special guests include the Italian Consul for Economic & Commercial Affairs in Shanghai – Ms. Eugenia Palagi, the Italian Trade Commissioner – Mr Claudio Pasqualucci and the vice-president of the Chinese National Textile and Apparel Council – Mr Xu Wen Ying. 
Itema CEO, Mr Carlo Rogora said: “We at Itema strongly believe that our unyielding commitment to our Customers – from best, most innovative technology solutions to most accurate and timely assistance – will help them, and us, reach together new heights of shared success.” 
“Itema takes this opportunity to renew our commitment and reaffirm our utmost dedication to our valuable Customers and to continuous innovation and support in the market,” said the Group Sales & Marketing Director, Mr Fulvio Carlo Toma. 
The list of confirmed participants has exceeded expectations at almost double the original list, including industry wide participation of Chinese weaving mills. The Grand Opening celebration agenda is packed full of exciting events, such as fashion show of products woven on the Company’s machines and a fusion of best Western and Chinese traditional entertainment, music and food.
