Assessment of technology level of manufacturers in finishing sector

Jan '10
The partnership established between Italian technological know-how and Iranian textile manufacturers is by now a consolidated fact, and a resounding success story for both parties.

For years, Iran has been one of the most prominent markets for Italy's textile machinery manufacturers. The sales of Italian textile machinery to Iran during the first 9 months of 2009 (most updated figures) amounted to 16 million Euros, ranking Iran fifth overall among Asian markets for Italy's textile machinery industry. The type of machinery requested has changed partially, with a growing interest for finishing machinery. During the period from January to September 2009, sales of Italian machinery to Iran were distributed as follows: finishing machinery 46% of total, other machinery 16%, weaving machines 13%, spinning machines 11%, accessories 11%, knitting machines 3%. The mounting share of finishing machines highlights a continuing surge in qualitative levels for Iranian textile production, which has been increasingly offering products with greater added value, for which ennobling processes play an important role in finished products.

The ever-growing interest on the part of Iranian companies for Italian finishing machinery has prompted ACIMIT (Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers) and ICE (Italian Trade Commission), in partnership with the Iranian Textile Association, to promote a technology check-up for Italian textile companies operating in the finishing sector. To this end, during the second half of 2009, an Italian expert in the sector visited 10 local textile manufacturers to pinpoint any technology gaps, simultaneously identifying possible solutions by Italian textile machinery manufacturers.

The data collected was gathered in brief information files and distributed to each Iranian company visited. The files portray an overview of the existing situation, indicating possible technology solutions. The data in the files show a progressive improvement in the level of technology for machinery being used. The demand for even greater quality for finished products on global markets will entail a growing demand in machinery that can provide higher levels of performance, such as those being offered by Italian machinery manufacturers.

This technology check-up represents yet another moment of synergy between Italy's textile machinery manufacturers and Iran's textile and garments industry, and is an integral part of an intense promotional campaign being promoted by ACIMIT and the ICE in the Iranian market over many years now. The technology check-up thus served as a natural follow-up to the technology symposiums which took place in February 2009 in Teheran and Isfahan.
