Swissmem presents new textile machinery at Irantex 2017
Sep '17
The Swiss Textile Machinery Association (Swissmem), recently exhibited in the Irantex 2017 expo, the 23rd international exhibition of textile machinery, raw materials, home textiles, embroidery machines, and textile products, which was held from September 4 to 7, 2017, in Iran. A total of 13 Swiss companies took part in the global machinery expo.

The exhibition, at the Tehran fairgrounds from September 4 to 7, attracted wide international participation, and Switzerland’s special pavilion – its first for a decade – helped its companies to make a strong impression on trade visitors. Business contacts were enhanced and the Swiss exhibitor group was able to report that some notable project negotiations were finalised at the event.

Swiss firms exhibiting included Jakob Müller, Benninger, Willy Grob, G. Hunziker, Stäubli, Norsel, Retech, Heberlein, SSM, Luwa, Steiger Participations, Saurer, and Drop Chemicals. A highlight was the visit of Switzerland’s ambassador to Iran, Markus Leitner, to the pavilion. He met with the Swiss exhibitors and discussed the opportunities and challenges of doing business with Iran.

Cornelia Buchwalder, secretary general of the Swiss textile machinery association said, “Feedback was very positive. Our companies valued their participation and the quality of business contacts, and the exhibition provided an excellent follow-up to our Iran symposium in 2016.”

Benninger area sales director Peter Vormbruck said, “We found that customer interest in high-quality and technology-driven machinery was very positive. There was even a strong desire to overcome the financial complexities to enable the Iranian industry to take advantage of the imported products. We were pleased to have some very open discussions on technology and opportunities in this important market of Iran.” (GK)
