ACIMIT members to partake in Colombiatex 2018 expo
Members of ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, are set to participate in the Colombiatex 2018 expo, Colombia’s main textile tradefair, to be held from November 23 to 25, 2018, in Medellin. 24 companies will be exhibiting their latest technology in the common area set up by the Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT.

Among Italian companies exhibiting at the common exhibition space, ACIMIT members include Beschi, Beta, Biancalani, Btsr, Caipo, Carù, Durst, Fadis, Itema, Laip, Mactec, Marzoli, Mcs, Monti-Mac, Noseda, Ratti, Reggiani, Salvadè, Santex Rimar Group, Simet, Smit, and Tecnorama.

The Colombian textile and garments industry is among the most important one in America, above all with respect to the fashion sector. Thanks to a number of trade agreements undertaken with neighbouring countries, as well as with the world’s two major apparel markets (the United States and European Union), the industry has recorded further progress in recent years.

Interest on the part of Italy’s textile machinery industry for the Colombian market comes from the ongoing demand for technological updates by local manufacturers. Italian exports to the region in 2016 rose to a value of €13 million. Over the first six months of 2017, sales of Italian textile machinery to this market exceeded €6 million. Among Made in Italy production technology most in demand by Colombian textile and garments manufacturers are finishing machinery (58 per cent of the total) and spinning machinery (16 per cent). (GK)
