- Business was good at ITMA ASIA.
“Our customers are finalising many projects and, as our orders backlog is already good, delivery time is increasing for all the machinery producers. Customers from China of course but also from India, Pakistan, Thailand and Iran visited our booths, they were particularly interested by our new technologies and our service approach” reports Evelyne CHOLET.
Some manufacturers were particularly enthusiastic about future business in India, where the textile industry needs an urgent modernization even though the implementation of the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) put in place by the Indian government is going through some delays. Also some delays are noticed in Middle Eastern countries due to the political turmoils which took place.
“But what is important analyzes Bruno AMELINE is that our customers have a real willingness to invest for the future of their own companies. They are aiming at new markets, new products, and resource efficient production processes which bring raw materials and energy savings, and they know they can rely on us to be their technology partners in many sectors”.
- But the main topic at the press meeting was the war against copycats.
“It is a global war, said Bruno AMELINE. We fight and will continue to fight all over the world because our strategy is based on Research and Development, on technology breakthroughs and on protecting our patents, brands or any other intellectual rights.”
Fortunately this fight against copycats which is part of the international trade agreements is given more and more support by the governments and the judicial systems. In China, for example, some very positive judgments have given our members significant damages for infringement by unfair competitors and some of these have even been sentenced to jail.
Such organizations as ITMA ASIA+ CITME are also helping the creative machinery manufacturers against unfair competition and machines were covered during the fair because they were found to infringe on other exhibitors’ patents.
