Swiss machinery producers to show 'inventive DNA' at ITMA

Every major sector along the textile value chain will be covered by Swiss exhibits at the forthcoming ITMA 2019 in Barcelona. The exhibits would range from fibre and yarn manufacturing through knitting, weaving, nonwovens, dyeing and finishing. In many of these disciplines, like textile testing, quality control and yarn spinning, Swiss firms lead the world.

The majority of the 63 exhibitors from Switzerland at ITMA 2019, to be held from June 20-26, will attend under the organisation of their national representative body, the Swiss Textile Machinery Association (Swissmem), whose president, Ernesto Maurer, promises an exciting and dynamic showcase of genuine innovation.

“Swiss machinery manufacturers always provide some of the headline presentations at the big exhibitions,” says Maurer. “Barcelona this year will be no exception, as our members will certainly demonstrate the power of Swiss innovation, a tradition rooted in our national DNA across numerous ground-breaking inventions in textiles and the wider world.”

The heritage of the Swissmem members is impressive, dating back to the dawn of the industrial revolution and amounting to a combined total of more than 4,000 years of expertise in meeting the needs of textile producers worldwide.

Tradition provides the essential background to the Swiss innovative spirit, but progress today sees companies which are in the forefront of modern and future trends in areas such as digitalisation, sustainability and energy efficiency, with data handling and interpretation underpinning practically every aspect of their work, a Swissmem press release said.

Swissmem secretary general Cornelia Buchwalder accepts that the industry faces ever-changing challenges – not least of which is inexorable globalisation of the textile business. “We in Switzerland are confident that we have the structures and strength to keep pace with the continuing evolution of the textile world, thanks to our financially sound companies and, of course the ongoing development of the machinery and equipment that our ‘inventor DNA’ makes possible,” she says.

“We also have the shared commitment to customer needs which is the core of our offering to the marketplace. Ultimately, we aim to provide added-value to our customers, to help them reach their business goals and achieve sustainable profitability,” she adds. (RKS)
