YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-03-08 15:00:00 – UK

In the upcoming edition of Techtextil Frankfurt, the world’s largest industry event for nonwovens and technical textiles, which will take place this May 2017. Around 70 Italian machinery manufacturers will be participating.

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.

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.

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.

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 percent 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.
