VDMA partakes in textile machinery symposium in Colombia

Aug '17
Seven member of the VDMA textile machinery association from Germany presented their technologies to the representatives of the Colombian textile industry at a symposium in Colombia. More than 100 Colombian textile manufacturers used the symposia in Bogota and Medellin as an opportunity to gain first-hand information about German Technology.

VDMA members Trutzschler, Groz-Beckert, Autefa Solutions Germany, Brückner Trockentechnik, Mahlo, Interspare, and Saueressig participated in the business delegation trip by the German-Colombian Chamber of Commerce (AHK). All the companies could establish contacts with potential customers and representations and even partially conclude orders.

Furthermore, the visits to the two large multi-level textile manufacturers Artextil (design, textile printing, finishing) and Fabricato (spinning, weaving preparation, weaving, finishing) provided insights on the state of the Colombian textile and apparel sector.

Currently, the Colombian textile industry employs 114,322 people, contributing 6.5 per cent to the gross domestic product of the country. In addition to the import surplus of almost $1.2 billion, the Colombian textile and apparel sector is struggling primarily against illegal imports from Asia, which are countered by the government. The import of textile raw materials should be reduced through local production with the goal to increase quality, productivity, and export. In 2016, the export ratio was a mere 15 per cent. The security situation in the country has improved in recent years. (GK)
