Rabatex Industries Pvt Ltd, one of India’s most prominent textile machinery manufacturers, has strengthened its capacities with full technical support and know-how from Alexander & Giovanelli (A&G) Group, an Italian textile machinery systems provider. The group has made its mark in developing and producing equipment with quality materials from Europe.
Combining technology and tradition, A&G Group has grown in a seamlessly progressive way. The teal strength of this group is the centenary family's experience in this sector and the constant commitment, dedication, respect and care for details that make their work unique. The group also specialises in design and installation of advanced material handling and storage equipment. With its technical support and cutting-edge technology, Rabatex aims to produce state-of-the-art weaving transportation trolleys in India. 
The joint venture agreement of Rabatex with the A&G Group will bring unique expertise in manufacturing and sales of advanced, electric operated, handling equipment to the Indian market. The A&G Group currently has an extensive range of electric trolleys for weaving room, which it will now manufacture in India, instead of exporting them from Italy. However, throughout the production, quality and production standards of the Group will be maintained.
“The main reason for tying up with Rabatex is to use their world-class manufacturing facilities and proficiency. It will reduce our production costs and we will be able to offer products with the most competitive prices in the world market. The supply from India will surely shorten the delivery time to supply to India and other Asian countries as well. We hope to have progressive association and partnership with the Rabatex Group,” Luca Giovanelli, director at Alexander & Giovanelli Group, said.
The joint venture will also complement Rabatex in offering a complete range of material handling equipment for the textile industry, including the mechanical trolleys and electric operated trolleys. The company is well-established in the Indian and global markets with more than 5,000 trolleys working successfully in leading textile mills. With the industry moving towards automated technologies, Rabatex foresees a good demand for the electric operated trolleys. And, due to increased capacities with this tie-up, their market share for trolleys is all set to increase in India and 28 other countries as well. 
Additionally, the company’s customers will have several advantages. According to Sandeep Panchal of Rabatex Group, “Rabatex produces mechanical trolleys but is looking forward to catering to the demands of automated equipment. This may ease the functioning of any unit with a lesser operational cost to the weaving department, by enhancing productivity and reducing downtime. Also, the electrical trolleys are equipped with several safety features, so the chances of accidents will be minimised."  
Giovanelli also wants to explore a new concept of renting trolleys to mills. The company would be the first to start such a service. It plans to rent the trolleys to the mills and provide the service of regular upkeep of these trolleys. This will ensure that the trolleys are always maintained as per the strict European safety standards and will also be cost-effective for the mills. 
After the amalgamation of resources and expertise, the Rabatex Group is looking to diversify manufacturing by focusing on material handling and storage solution equipment as well. Rabatex is also aiming for more technical tie-ups in this field in the coming years. Another addition to its list of joint ventures is a tie-up with world-renowned Karl Mayer for manufacturing of warp preparation machinery in India. These companies are known for their innovation and ability to produce futuristic technology for the industry. With several such contributions, Rabatex has set benchmarks in the industry and will continue to move further with the same spirit and dedication. 
Rabatex Industries was established in 1962 with the vision and mission to develop cutting edge technology in the textile machinery sector. Through its passionate R&D team, the company has stood firm on its goals, which has led to its success in 28 countries across the globe.
