20 Italian textile machinery manufacturers will be exhibiting at the upcoming edition of Colombiatex, to be held in Medellin from January 26-28, 2016.

“The common exhibition area created by the Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT will allow visitors from all over South America to verify and appreciate the excellence of the Italian technology on show,” an ACIMIT press release stated.

Among the Italian companies exhibiting at the show are A. Piovan, Carù, Cubotex, Fadis, Ferraro, Itema, Mactec, Mcs, Noseda, Otlas, Prochimica, Ratti, Reggiani, Simet, Temat, Textape and Rollmac.

According to ACIMIT, the strong Italian presence at Colombiatex confirms the attention Italy's textile machinery manufacturers place on the local market and this trade fair event in particular.

“In recent years Colombia has become one of the main fashion centres on the continent and the sector stands out for its quality creations and innovation, especially in terms of design and materials used,” ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli said.

“Colombiatex is therefore a benchmark trade fair in South America for the textile and textile machinery industry, and I am convinced that it will represent an important window for Italian technology this year too,” she added.

Colombia's textile industry is among the most significant and experimental in South America and due to the numerous trade agreements signed with different countries and regions; locally manufactured products have been able to penetrate important markets.

“However, in order to further develop local excellence and react to competition from imported products, the Colombian textile and garments sector must further increase the quality and level of technology employed,” ACIMIT observed.

Since 2010, Italian sales in Colombia have recorded progressive growth, reaching around €12 million in 2014, a 12 per cent increase compared to 2013 and for the first half of 2015; they amounted to €4 million. (AR)
