We launch two lace design collections each year

CADT Software & Drafting was founded in Spain in 1987 by Josep Queraltó and a team of experts in computer-assisted textile design and analysis. The company is based in Sant Cugat del Vallès, the technological and industrial centre close to Barcelona. Since its inception, CADT's programming department has been tirelessly working to develop and refine the SAPO Lace Drafting System and other programmes for the lace industry. At the same time, CADT's drafting department has been drafting for all types of machines and lace stylings, the newest knitting machinery and fashion trends to create seasonal sketches. Chief operations officer (COO) Xavier Martinez chats about the company's newest solutions.

Tell us in brief about your company.

CADT was founded in 1987 by Josep Queraltó. We offer designs, styling, sketches and drafting for manufacturing lace fabrics through our software.

What new solutions were presented at ITMA 2019? Please share features and benefits of these technologies.

We are mainly promoting a kit for textile designers with all the required tools. We are also promoting an inspirational book for designers. We are also promoting a collection of lace designs and sketches. Every year, we launch two collections of lace designs.

To how many countries do you export?

We export all over the world and 98 per cent of our products are exported.

Since how many years has your company been taking part in ITMA?

We first exhibited in 2011 in Barcelona and so this is our third edition.

What is your opinion of ITMA and other textile machinery exhibitions?

We do not see any difference between textile machinery exhibitions held in other countries and ITMA. (HO)
