ACIMIT member companies take part in ITMA Asia
Around 130 Italian companies from ACIMIT are taking part in the ongoing ITMA Asia + CITME 2018 expo, at the Industry Information Hub – Association Village, in hall 1, stand F58. The international textile machinery exhibition is being held from October 15-19, 2018, in Shanghai, China. ACIMIT is the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers.

Of these, 63 manufacturers are presenting their technology offerings within National Sector Groups organised by ACIMIT and the ICE-Agency. The total exhibition surface area occupied by Italian businesses amounts to roughly 6,300 square metres, placing Italy among the main exhibiting nations at the event, according to a press release by ACIMIT.

“Prospects for the Chinese market remain positive, in spite of the fact that the demand for foreign machinery from local textile manufacturers for this first half of the year has been rather slow. The trust our machinery manufacturers have placed in China is abundantly apparent in the large number of Italian exhibitors present in Shanghai. Italy is among the most highly ranked foreign countries in terms of the number of exhibiting companies,” ACIMIT president Alessandro Zucchi said.

The demand for machinery in China is focused primarily on technologies capable of combining savings in production costs with environmental sustainability. China’s textile industry is just as sensitive to innovative solutions that can respond to the market’s changing demands; that is, fast time-to-market and just-in-time production.

Italy, with its high-tech and eco-friendly manufacturers, is one of the most important player in the textile machinery industry. Italian high-quality machines will foster China textile industry’s quality and will provide environmental conservation. China is implementing policies for the reduction of carbon emissions with new measures for low carbon economy, low energy consumption, low-pollution, one of the future choices in the economic development. In Eastern China, there are the top three provinces for textile and garment industry: Zhejiang, Jiangsu, and Fujian, that along with the provinces Guangdong and Shandong reach around 80 per cent of the industry’s production capability. Italy remains one of the leading suppliers of textile machinery in China: for cleaning, dyeing and finishing machines, knitting, stitch-bond, lace, and auxiliary machinery, according to Massimiliano Tremiterra, Italian trade commissioner in Shanghai.
