The number of participating Italian companies has grown over the years, demonstrating the interest Italy’s textile machinery sector places in the technical and innovative textiles market, ACIMIT, the Association of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, reports.

New customer demands

In recent years, the technical and innovative textiles industry has seen a great deal of development in many markets, and especially in Europe, where over 30% of revenue in the textile industry derives from the production of textiles for technical and innovative applications.

Demand for such products has consequently also driven a demand for ad hoc machinery specifically designed for this sector. The offering promoted by Italy’s textile machinery industry is thus expanding to the new demands of customers operating in this specific sector. ACIMIT estimates that more than 100 of its member companies are now working in this sector.

Exhibiting companies

“A testament to the dynamism that characterises the Italian textile machinery industry in the technical textiles sector comes from the sheer number of Italian manufacturers who will be exhibiting in Frankfurt at the upcoming Techtextil,” the association reports.

Around 70 Italian textile machinery companies will be present in Germany. Of these, 25 companies will be exhibiting in the exhibition area organised by the Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT. These companies are all ACIMIT associated members: 4M Plants, Beschi, Bianco, Bombi, Bonino, Canalair, Carù, Cogne, Cubotex, Dell’orco & Villani, Etv, Fadis, Mesdan, Monti-Mac, Noseda, Pmt Ribbons, Ratti, Rollmac, Sariel, Saspe, Sicam, Textape, Toscana Spazzole, Unitech, and Zappa.

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers, employing close to 12,000 people and producing machinery for an overall value of about EUR 2.6 billion, with exports amounting to more than 86% of total sales.
