Swissmem conducts textile machinery forum in Uzbekistan
The Swiss Textile Machinery Association (Swissmem), recently conducted a two-day symposium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, showcasing the technology and know-how of 14 leading textile machinery manufacturers from Switzerland. Already a strong producer of raw cotton and yarns, Uzbekistan plans to add value and quality through textile technology investment.

The event was opened by the Swiss Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Olivier Chave, and Bakhodir Alikhanov, the first deputy chairman of Uzbekistan Textile and Garment Association. It was attended by hundreds of delegates from the Uzbek textile and clothing sector, as well as a large contingent of students from the textile faculty of Tashkent University.

Uzbekistan aims to take its textile manufacturing capabilities to the next stage, by investing in latest-technology for downstream processes of fabric manufacture, finishing, and making-up.

Ernesto Maurer, president of the Swiss Textile Machinery Association said, “The fact that the Uzbek currency is now convertible for international exchange is the foundation for a significant increase in foreign trade. And the presence of many important representatives of the Uzbekistan textile industry at the symposium is proof that there is great enthusiasm to take advantage of the new opportunities, especially in the development of business in the value-added areas of textile production, downstream from the established raw cotton and yarn sectors.”

The member companies of Swissmem that took part in the symposium include Amsler Tex, Benninger, ITEMA, Jakob Müller, Loepfe Brothers, Luwa, Maag Brothers, Rieter, Rieter Components (Bräcker, Graf, SSM), Saurer, Stäubli Sargans, and Steiger.

Cornelia Buchwalder, secretary general of Swissmem said, “The machinery manufacturers presenting their technology at the event were gratified at the level of interest shown. Along with industrialists, it was especially pleasing to welcome many textile students to learn about the Swiss companies and their products. After all, we are planning to create new partnerships and project for the future, and these are the people who will be involved in this process in the years to come.” (GK)
