Santex Rimar Group, one of the leading players in the world market of textile finishing, technical textiles, and green technologies for water treatment and drying processes, recently held the second Future Textile Road event in Yazd, Iran, working towards its commitment to the textile industry development. Yazd is the Iran textile industry hub.

The event drivers were research, dialogue and intercultural cooperation, open innovation, and new technology implementation. The aim of Future Textile Road is to build an innovative platform for the future development of the global textile industry and the long-term construction of the cooperation between countries.

During the event, Santex Rimar Group signed an agreement with Yazd University for supplying a SMIT rapier weaving machine with the purpose to train students on the latest textile technologies and do research jointly.

Aliasghar Alamdar-Yazdi and Dr. Seyed Abbas Mir Jalili from the textile engineering department of Yazd University; Kamalian from the Sanat va Maadan Bank - Mine & Industries Bank; Federico Businaro, general manager of Santex Rimar Italy; Enrico Valsecchi, sales head of Smit, and Giancarlo Grandesso from Gi.Vi.Co, Smit were part of the event.

Contents shifted from the relationship between University and local textile companies to the financial tools for Iranian entrepreneurs who want to buy equipment - from the latest developments of SMIT to the trends of fabrics design of Spring/Summer 2018.

The event represented a unique opportunity to the attendees to visit the factory of SMIT customer Reza Soltani. With more than 36 years of experience, he begun weaving traditional fabrics before focusing mainly on upholstery fabrics which are among the best products of SMIT rapier weaving machines. (GK)
