Italy will host a textile machinery roadshow in Iran from May 22. A total of 26 Italian manufacturers (of which 23 are ACIMIT associated members) will be taking part in a series of technology symposia programmed in some of the Country’s major cities (Teheran, Yazd, Isfahan, Mashad) until May 30.
Organized by the Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, with the support of Ministry of Economic Development, this mission will allow Iranian textile manufacturers to measure their knowhow with some of Italy’s primary producers of textile machinery, and become acquainted with the most up-to-date solutions for the different steps involved in the textile production process.
In 2015, Italian exports towards Iran amounted to 8 million Euros. Iranian demand is spread out over all types of production, but Italian finishing and spinning machines are the primary exports. ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers (employing close to 12,000 people) and producing machinery for an overall value of about 2.6 billion Euros, with exports amounting to 86 per cent of total sales. The quality of Italian textile technology is evidenced by the high number of Countries in which Italian machinery is sold: around 130 Countries worldwide.
