“The ABTT congratulates VDMA – Textile Machinery Association for the realization of the Brazilian Editions in São Paulo and Blumenau of the Conference and Exposition Cycles ‘German Technology for the Brazilian Textile Industry’. It has been a great honour for our association to support this event that has brought new technologies to the textile area companies and to the industrial Brazilian public.

The twenty two companies headquartered in the Federal Republic of Germany delighted to present their machines and equipment to the entrepreneurs from the textile chain, here in Brazil, so that they could observe what could be offered in terms of new technologies available, and in doing so they could have more arguments for their purchasing decision looking for renewal of their industrial machines.

At this event the public became aware of new equipment, that are to help the Brazilian industry to be more competitive, serving the market with more adequate products and manufacturing under ecological standards.”

Verena Ruckh, Head of Advertising & Marketing Department, Brückner Textile Finishing Machinery said: "The symposium gave us the chance to present our latest technology to all interested customers and other visitors and to cultivate the relationships in the Brazilian market."

Walter Letzgus, Manager Customer Service, Memminger-IRO GmbH commented: “Thanks to VDMA, our company presented the latest product range to knitting mills in Brazil.”
