'ITME-India provided very good platform'– Mr Bachkaniwala, Himson Textiles

India-ITME 2008, the International Textile Machinery Expo concluded last month in Bangalore, India. The participants included the most important global players numbering about 750 in manufacture of textile machinery and components from Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, U.K., U.S.A., China, Turkey, Brazil and other parts of the globe besides the Indian manufacturers with a product range stretching across the whole textile production chain.

Himson Textile Engineering Industries, the flagship company of the Rs. 4.0 billion Himson group was also one of the exhibitors. Himson started its activities about 50 years ago by manufacturing power looms to manufacture quality fabrics. The company now manufactures a wide range of yarn processing machinery, automatic shuttle changing and Rapier Looms and High Speed Circular Knitting Machines and a host of other textile components.

To share their experience at the India-ITME fair, Fibre2fashion.com spoke to Mr Pratik Bachkaniwala, Director of Himson Textile, who said, “Our experience at India ITME – 2008 was excellent looking into the fact of geographical inconvenience and the effect of worldwide demand contraction. The visitors were lesser in number compared to previous exhibitions, but genuine investors, which are looking for expansions or new projects, were present there. A lot of potential and existing customers had made it a point to visit and explore new developments in the textile engineering industry.”

He added by saying that,“The facility was state of the art, and no doubt about it. Beautiful landscape, well organized halls and excellent peripheral infrastructure within the premises. The venue had the look of an international exhibition and for the first time, a textile machinery fair organized in India looked like an international one in its true sense. Only black spot in the entire show was that all halls did not have the same setup (hall 4). Also, there were issues of duplicate stand numbers."

But he did have a word of compliment for the organizers when he said that, “Overall the show was well organized and with a new trend, new lessons are to be learnt. I sincerely believe that ITME will surely put a more improved show next time.”

We then asked him whether ITME matched his expectations as an opportunity to meet prospective buyers and generate some good business leads out of it, to which he positively replied by saying that,”The exhibition provided a very good platform for interacting with our existing customers and new potential customers as well. We had a very good chance of showing our new developments and also got feedback on future requirements from the user industry. We were able to bag some small orders, based on which we are expecting larger orders from same group of customers in the future.”
