The much-awaited ITMACH India 2019 was inaugurated today by Gujarat’s energy minister Saurabh Patel, on December 5, 2019. The textile technology show is being hosted in Gandhinagar’s Helipad Exhibition Centre from December 5-8, 2019.

Minister Patel congratulated the organisers of ITMACH India – K & D ITMACH Expositions – for organising such an important textile technology and machinery show in Gandhinagar which has helped the industry to adopt modern technology.

Gujarat is an important textile investment destination, and a show of this calibre offers an effective networking and business-matching platform to the industry.

According to Arvind Semlani, director, K & D ITMACH Expositions, “The Indian textile industry has continuously invested in innovations and technology upgradations as global opportunities open up. While the spinning sector is facing a challenging situation due to US-China trade war, it has also brought some new opportunities to weaving, knitting, dyeing, printing & wet processing and garment sectors. Global brands and retailers are looking for Indian suppliers with economy of scale plant with state-of-the-art process technology. Therefore, the Indian weaving, processing and garmenting sectors are still in investment mode and resource efficient technologies are much in demand.”

Minister Patel visited several stalls at the show and encouraged entrepreneurs for their efforts. He was visibly impressed by Picanol’s latest weaving machinery - Airjet Omniplus- i loom with Smartshed which is being demonstrated live with denim fabric and operates at production speed above 1000 rpm! P Kasiviswanathan, director, Picanol explained the many innovative features of this latest weaving machine, which is most suited to the Indian weaving sector.

He also visited the booth of India’s leading digital printing solutions company Stovec, Jay Instruments, True Colors, Reckon India, Rimtex, Itema Weaving, Staubli, Texfab among others.
