The French textile machinery Manufacturers have established a firm foothold on the international markets for many years. France is the European Union's third largest exporter of textile machinery and the sixth largest in the world. More than one hundred countries have chosen them as their partners to whom they export 90% of their national production. They are a dynamic group of companies who created years ago a private professional Association UCMTF (French Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers), whose aim is the promotion of the French machines and French companies. UCMTF nurtures the dynamism, professionalism, competence and creativity of the French member companies.

French companies have established and will continue to ensure a leadership position in the international textile industry.

They are expanding on textile markets with extremely targeted products and for industries requiring integrated manufacturing processes.

Employing more than 8.000 people with a continuously growing turnover (more than 1,5 billion USD) and backed by specialised research centres, the French manufacturers have dominant positions in their specialities. Most of them now hold significant world market shares, exceeding 60 % for some specialities. This leadership is due to the simultaneously implementation of technologically advanced machinery, reliability and the services required in large-scale exporting and automation. Their success in these areas guarantees a productive future, and gives the French machinery an advantage over the competition.

The specialised sectors of the French textile machinery industry are :

- Spinning preparation machinery
- Long fibre spinning machinery
- Fibre opening, fibre blending machinery, textile waste recovery
- Cards
- Nonwovens manufacturing lines
