GTTES to help SME exhibitors showcase textile machineries

The first Global Textile Technology and Engineering Show 2015 (GTTES) to be held from January 20-22, 2015 in Mumbai will provide a platform to small and medium textile machinery, equipment and component manufacturers to showcase their products, a top official of India ITME Society which is organizing GTTES told fibre2fashion.
 
India ITME Society, the host of the very successful India-ITME Exhibition which is held every four years, now plans to host GTTES every four years, alternately with India-ITME Exhibition.  This was revealed at a road show held in Ahmedabad to promote and market GTTES.  
 
Sharing their objective behind hosting GTTES, Mr Sanjiv Lathia, Chairman of India ITME Society tells fibre2fashion, “GTTES is a fair with a focus on Asia and also provide a platform to SMEs who might not be able to afford to participate in India-ITME Exhibition. We also plan to take GTTES to other Indian textile hubs in the future.”
 
Ms Seema Srivastava, Executive Director of India ITME Society adds, “India has strengths in spinning technology, but not so in other segments of the textile value-chain. To address the same, GTTES will have a focus on those segments like, weaving, garmenting and also technical textiles”. 
 
GTTES, which started stall bookings just two weeks back, has already been able to get confirmations from manufacturers in China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea and has positive enquiries from Vietnam and Indonesia, reveals Ms Srivastava. 
 
When asked to comment on the current status of the Indian textile machinery sector, Mr Prakash Bhagwati, Vice Chairman of India-ITME Society informs, “Investments in the textile industry have been put on hold, as investors are waiting for the outcome of the elections after which the policy picture will be clearer”.
 
Informing about the gap in Indian textile technology vis-à-vis foreign technology, Mr Bhagwati enlightens by saying, “We have technology gaps in weaving and garmenting sector, however when considering ginning and spinning, Indian technology is at par with foreign technology, while in fabric processing there may be some gaps in certain areas only”.
 
He adds, “And to address the gaps in weaving technology, the Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association (TMMA) has set up a consortium of TMMA members which will design and develop a weaving machine which will be at par with the latest technology available abroad”.
 
Speaking about the scope of manufacturing machinery for the nonwovens and technical textiles industry, Mr Lathia says, “There is a wonderful scope for producing these machineries, however the usage of technical textile and nonwoven products has to grow to a size and scale, which makes production of these machineries viable in India”.
