GTTES 2019 to focus on textile machinery & allied products
The major focus area at the Global Textile Technology & Engineering Show (GTTES), organised by India ITME Society, is textile machinery and allied products, except spinning. The fair focuses more on the conventional textiles industry and lays emphasis on advancement in technological parameters to get higher productivity and lower operating costs.

“Majority textile machinery manufacturers are upgrading their technology continuously. ITME Society through GTTES & ITME, provides them a platform, every two years, to showcase their products and an opportunity to interact with potential buyers,” Harishankar, chairman of India ITME Society, told Fibre2Fashion.

The trade fair takes place once every four years and the next GTTES edition will be held in January 2019 in Mumbai.

The organiser expects the fair to facilitate multiple growth in investments in the Indian textiles industry in line with that of the ministry of textiles. “Our focus would also be on follow-ups after the show to boost the industry,” he added.

Speaking about the contribution of the India ITME society in the growth of the textile engineering sector, Harishankar stated, “Forty years back, when India ITME Society was conceptualised, the Indian textiles industry was heavily dependent on handloom and Europe for textile technology. Today, India has become the second largest textiles industry in the world and competing in production and quality in the global market. Availability of modern machinery has helped this journey from traditional to modern.”

“Many machinery manufacturers have set up manufacturing units in India providing cost-competitive technology to the Indian textiles industry. India ITME Society, in the past 40 years, has facilitated these influencing factors in the textile & textile engineering industry. India ITME Society events have a significant role to play in this progress,” he concluded. (KD)
