Itema shows airjet & rapier weaving technology at ITMA

Itema S.p.A, the leading global provider of advanced weaving solutions, including best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, is exhibiting at ITMA ASIA+CITME 2014, one of the biggest textile fairs in the world, taking place in Shanghai, from June 16th-20th.  
 
Itema is proudly unveiling the latest advancements in weaving technology, both in airjet and rapier machines, to allow customers to produce high quality fabrics and achieve higher levels of success. Itema will exhibit 10 weaving machines in total, 6 in our own booth (Hall E2 Booth C01) and 4 with Jacquard applications in partners’ booths (Stäubli, Bonas, Grosse and Song & Song). 
 
The Italian privately held multinational Company closed 2013 with stellar results and a +50% YOY increase in weaving machines turnover and, encouragingly, the growth is still continuing into 2014.  Itema is the only manufacturer in the world to provide all three weft insertion technologies: rapier, airjet and projectile, with an ample product portfolio and a strong commitment to continuous innovation.  
 
The Company is present in China since 2003 with sales and after-sales teams, assembly and technical support with a mission to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions and a complete product and service offering. China is one of the most important markets for Itema and a country with a strong potential for continued growth, reason for which the Company launched new and improved corporate offices and assembly plant in Shanghai on March 6th, 2014.  
 
Outside China, Itema is dedicated to growing our reach and presence also in the Indian Subcontinent, with the latest appointment of a new Managing Director of Itema Weaving India Pvt. Ltd, Updeep Singh, who joins Itema with broad experience as a senior executive leader in the Indian textile industry, most recently, the role of Chief Operating Officer at NSL Textiles Ltd., as well as leadership positions in Welspun India – Asia’s largest terry towel manufacturer.  
 
“We view ITMA ASIA as an important platform to showcase our latest technological advancements,” said Carlo Rogora, CEO of Itema.  “We are probably the only company in the textile manufacturing industry that boasts not one, but two R&D departments.  Itema recently launched the ItemaLab, our advanced research incubator, with the mission to design the weaving machine of the future. We are immensely proud of our accomplishments and are confident that also our Customers will appreciate the innovations of our weaving machines.”
