France is the 6th textile machinery exporter worldwide. Together the 35 manufacturers' annual exports exceed 1 billion Euros (1.4 Billion USD). They and their association, UCMTF (French Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association), which is part of Cematex, the owner of the ITMA and ITMA ASIA brands, are actively preparing next ITMA which is taking place for the first time in the attractive city of Barcelona (September 22-29).

This major textile machinery show takes place every four years is the only textile machinery show where so many machines are erected and many of them really work. “It is the place for innovation and a unique opportunity to meet so many people, to see so many machines in what I call the biggest textile factory worldwide, states Evelyne CHOLET, UCMTF's Secretary General.

All the textile processes will be represented: spinning, weaving, knitting (circular and flat), dyeing and finishing, nonwovens, apparel manufacturing. Fibers producers and Research centers and Universities will be there for the first time.

The French manufacturers have put a lot of emphasis to prepare this event. They will present their “High Tech, energy saving machinery for high quality markets” summarizes UCMTF's Chairman Bruno AMELINE, who adds “ in France we do not have big diversified groups but state of the art, very active and specialised SME'S leaders in their sectors of application. They are doing very well and look to the future with great expectations.”

Through various means including the portal, UCMTF will help its members to promote their stands which will be located in different halls according to each manufacturer's main markets.
