Italian textile machinery builders to partake at Techtextil Russian trade fair

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2018-03-16 11:00:00 – Moscow

At Techtextil Russia, the specialised trade fair dedicated to technical textiles and nonwovens, to take place in Moscow next week, ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, and the Italian Trade Agency for the promotion and internationalisation of Italian businesses abroad, will be organising an exhibition space at the upcoming event.

The trade fair event arrives at a time of growth for Russia’s textiles sector. The Russian government has recently initiated pilot projects specifically targeting the modernisation of existing technology in the textiles sector and increasing the supply of local products on the Russian market. The production of technical textiles, in particular, is deemed by competent government authorities to constitute a driver in reviving the fate of Russia’s textiles industry.

Alessandro Zucchi, ACIMIT President said that this restructuring phase provides an opportunity to further strengthen existing relations between Russian textile manufacturers and Italian technology suppliers, which are already in good stead thanks to the promotional initiatives launched by ACIMIT and the ICE-Agency over the past few years.

The result of this interaction between Italy’s textile machinery manufacturers and Russian producers, is the Russian market’s constant presence among primary destinations for Italian exports of textile machinery.

A total of 23 companies will be on hand at Italy’s exhibition space, including the following ACIMIT associated members: A.T.F. Automations, Beta Machinery, Bombi Meccanica, Bonino Carding Machines, Cibitex, Cogne Macchine Tessili, Durst Phototechnik, Fabotex Tecnology, Fadis, Ferraro Spa, Guarneri Technology, MCS Officina Meccanica, Nuova Cosmatex, Pugi Group, Ratti Luino, Salmoiraghi, Sariel, Reggiani Macchine, Santex Rimar Group, Smit, Sicam Soc. It. Costruzioni Aeromeccaniche, Tessil Gomma Di Sergio Buson, and Toscana Spazzole Industriali.

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 2.7 billion, with exports amounting to more than 85% of total sales.

In 2016, Italy exported EUR 22 million worth of textile machinery to Russia, whereas figures updated to the first seven months of 2017 show a 51% increase compared to the same period for 2016, for a corresponding value of EUR 11 million.
