The French manufacturers export on average about 1 billion Euros (1.4 billion USD), their strategy is to bring value to their customers thanks to cooperative R and D and a strong commitment to customers' service.

They are specialty manufacturers, SMEs, but world leaders or among the world leaders on specific applications. They are particularly strong in weaving preparation, nonwovens, and in specialized spinning, dyeing and finishing machinery.

After a very difficult year in 2009, they prepare ITMA ASIA+CITME 2010 with a real optimism. Asian countries like China and India are already recovering, the US seem to emerge from the slump as Europe. Investments start to pick up again and a very important incentive to invest is the development of new products which need new production technologies.

“Clearly, we see warmer prospects since the end of 2009. Spare parts business is getting back to usual levels which mean the utilization of the existing production facilities has improved, orders for new machines also and many new projects are under discussion. I expect a robust rebound end of 2010 and in 2011” says Bruno Ameline the French association's President.

In China, for example, the government announced a series of measures. One of the projects concerns doubling the investment in rail networks. It will need millions of square meters of geotextiles which increasingly evolve in the direction of nonwovens solutions. French machinery manufacturers are very well positioned for such investments.

Bruno Ameline adds “our companies are well positioned for the future because during the crisis, we have continued to invest in R and D in close relationship with our clients.
We also have worked with machinery manufacturers offering complementary technologies to offer our customers a “single point of purchase”.

We have also worked very hard on energy savings. In many examples, the energy saving is in the 30-40 % range, same or even more for the water consumption in dyeing and finishing. For Evelyne Cholet, the Association Secretary General, “ we cannot compete on high volume commodity products, Chinese and other Asian manufacturers offer low cost machines but our strategy of specialized manufacturers with a tailor made approach is to address in depth customers' needs.

This is once again what our manufacturers will show at next ITMA ASIA+CITME. We cordially invite all interested textile producer to visit us, it will be an honour for us to receive them”.
