ACIMIT to open textile machinery training centre in India
Sep '14
The Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) is set to open a textile machinery training centre at Ichalkaranji city of Kolhapur district, Maharashtra.

The project is initiated following an agreement between the ACIMIT and DKTE Society’s Textile & Engineering Institute, Ichalkaranji. It will offer training courses for the students enroled with the textile machinery training centre.

The project will also have machineries and equipments taken on loan from Italian manufacturers for three years. Three of the ACIMIT’s associated members Bianco, Fadis and Savio will also be a part of the project.

The training centre is part of the Machines Italia project financed by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development (MiSE). The goal of the Machines Italia project in India is to support the internationalization of businesses in Italy and India.

The project, coordinated by ACIMIT and Rare Tech Projects, will be responsible for organizing all on-site activities. DKTE Society’s Textile & Engineering Institute’s professors and Indian textile operators will be visiting Italy as part of the project.

ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli said in a press release, “With the technology training centre becoming operative, our sector is laying the foundations for future business opportunities in a market that is already important for the majority of our machinery manufacturers.”

“I’m certain this initiative will provide a positive return in terms of image, not only for individual Italian businesses participating by supplying machinery, but for Italy’s textile machinery sector as a whole”, he added.

The principal of DKTE Society’s Textile & Engineering Institute Prof. Dr. PV Kadole said, “It is a great satisfaction as the students will get a first-hand experience on the Italian machines. This centre will be an important point of reference for our faculty and students.”

“The students of DKTE, will now be directly exposed to the state-of-the art of the Italian technology and it will further enhance our skills for research and development projects. The students will be future brand ambassadors of these machines and will take a message to the industry upon their employment in few years”, he added.

According to the members of governing council of DKTE Society’s Textile & Engineering Institute, the project is an important step aimed at providing quality education on latest machines from Italy.

ACIMIT is a private non-profit making body and its main purpose consists in promoting the Italian textile machinery sector throughout the world.

DKTE’S Textile & Engineering Institute, founded in 1982, by Mr. KB Awade, former Industry Minister of Maharashtra, is one of the prominent institutions engaged in Technical, education, training, research and consultancy. (GK)
