Expotextil to host Italian textile machinery manufacturers
Expotextil, the fair for textile and garment sector in Peru, to be held from October 24-27 in Lima, will have a large representation of Italian textile machinery manufacturers this year. Inside the Italian pavilion organised by Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT, the Association of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, 18 Italian companies will exhibit.

The Italian companies exhibiting at the fair will be Arioli, Biancalani, Bianco, Btsr, Danitech, Ferraro, Itema, Lawer, Marzoli, Mcs, Ms Printing Solutions, Proxima, Pugi Group, Ratti, Roj, Santex Rimar Group, Stalam and Ugolini.

In Peru, the textile and clothing industry is one of the leading sectors of the local economy. In fact, the country is the world's leading producer of alpaca fibres (over 95 per cent of the world production of this fibre is produced in Peru). There is also the cultivation and processing of cotton, especially in the northern area of the country. Finally, the sector is supported by government programmes aimed at increasing the quantity and quality of products made in Peru.

"In a framework of technological renewal of the Peruvian textile industry, the Italian presence at Expotextil is strategic. If it wants to remain competitive, the local industry needs to renew its machinery and to improve the quality of its items. The strategic partnership with the Italian technological offer is essential for textile companies that aim to increase their competitiveness with respect to imported products," said Alessandro Zucchi, president of ACIMIT.

The textile industry in Peru has already benefited, over the years, from the partnership with Italian textile machinery manufacturers. Peru is the fourth largest market for Italian sales in South America. In 2018, sales of Italian textile machinery in the country reached a value of around €10 million. Moreover, in the first four months of 2019 Italian exports to Peru increased by 8 per cent compared to the same period in 2018.

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector that comprises roughly 300 manufacturers, which produce machinery for an overall worth of around €2.5 billion, of which 83 per cent are exported.
