What are your expectations from the ongoing India ITME 2016? How have your product offerings been received so far?
Although ITMA Asia was just one month ago, India ITME has attracted a lot of visitors from both India and abroad. Once again this show is confirming itself as one of the most important textile machinery shows worldwide. So far we have had a lot of visits from both clients and prospects. One of our most valued products is on display and we have been promoting our presence at this show for more than one month now. We expect high number of visitors also in the next few days.
How big is the market for your products in India?
India is the second largest market in the world for spinning machinery. A recent report by ITMF states that over 40 million spindles have been installed. Obviously, in such a big market there are a lot of opportunities. There are always spinning mills that want to renovate their technical assets.
In India Marzoli has installed machines in several spinning mills, many of whom are well-known opinion leaders of the industry. The FT6E and FT7E series confirms Marzoli's intention to provide the Indian spinning sector with the most modern technology for roving production.
Besides offering the most advanced European technology, we also aim at supporting the industry through our Indian branch which can provide spare parts and technical assistance.
Which other markets for your products are growing?
Marzoli is a global reality. We have three premises, a worldwide sales and service network and active clients in over 70 countries. This allows us to exploit opportunities in several markets.
In the last couple of months we have done particularly well in Iran and North Africa, markets that we believe have great growth potential.
