Textile machinery manufacturers to participate in TECHTEXTIL

March 24, 2008 - France

“Textile machinery is part of the Technical textiles industry as the French machinery manufacturers are no longer machines suppliers only but technology partners”, states Evelyne Cholet, Secretary General of the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers’ Association.

It is thanks to the encounter of market needs with the pro-active approaches of technical textiles producers and machinery manufacturers that many new markets have been successfully developed for these fast growing textiles.

Techtextil North America is a main meeting point of this industry in the Americas. This why French machinery manufacturers will participate again next April 1-3 in Atlanta.

Evelyne Cholet adds “our goal is to be as close as possible to our customers and understand the needs of their own customers, to listen to them, to better evaluate how we can create value for them. This is why our members have set up the necessary organization to offer so many services to their customers”.
