Itema debuts weaving technology advancements at Open House
May '14
Itema S.p.A, the leading global provider of advanced weaving solutions, including best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, organized an Open House in Americana, Sao Paulo, from May 15th-17th. 
During the Open House, Itema proudly unveiled its 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 exhibited three machines in total, two airjet weaving bed-sheeting and denim and one rapier weaving upholstery.
The Italian privately held multinational Company closed 2013 with stellar results and a +50% YOY increase in weaving machines turnover, being 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.
Latin America is a big and important market for the Company, which counts many valuable Customers with strong and long-lasting partnerships across the continent.
The Open House was hosted by SENAI School, an important textile institution dedicated to turning its students into textile experts and specialists of the weaving industry.
Fulvio Carlo Toma, Itema Group Sales & Marketing Director wholeheartedly thanked the SENAI School by saying, “For us, being here in Brazil is a great opportunity to meet our valuable Customers and to show them our latest innovation, and SENAI School is the absolute perfect location.  Itema and SENAI share many strong values, such as our commitment to continuing education, training, expertise and innovation. Our Company has recently launched Itema Academy, a highly rated apprenticeship program to recruit and retain talented new graduates in our headquarters in Italy.”
Prof. Adao, coordinator at SENAI School, also comments, “We, in SENAI, dedicate ourselves to teaching our students how to become textile experts in order to bring textile companies in Brazil high-level graduates. Hosting Itema Open House Brazil gives us an invaluable opportunity to let our students come face-to-face with the latest technological advancements in weaving machines and meet many important textile companies visiting the exhibition.”
