India is the biggest warp knitting market
The Industry 4.0 project has not just been embraced by German machinery manufacturers; Chinese machinery manufacturers are equally excited and geared up for the same. Wang Minqi, president of Chinese textile machinery manufacturer Changzhou Wujin Wuyang Textile Machinery Co Ltd, talks to Fibre2Fashion.com about the strengths of the company in terms of technological innovations and the products they are going to display at ITMA 2015.

Our company believes that technological innovation is the driving force for development.
