Weaving machines producer Itema partakes at ITMACH 2014
Italy based Itema S.p.A, is exhibiting at ITMACH 2014, a textile machinery fair being held in Gandhinagar, India from December 10-13, 2014 at Stand A-24A.
Alongside, it is also one of the sponsors of “India – Opportunities for Global Investment in Textiles”, an international textile conference, which will be held concurrently with the textile technology trade fair.
Itema India has developed a comprehensive sales and after-sales service organization operating from its own offices in Mumbai, Coimbatore, New Delhi and Kolhapur.
The Indian office has also played a fundamental role contributing to the overall positive result for Itema, a manufacturer of advanced weaving machines and has registered a record growth in 2014 sales.
At the helm of its operations in India is the new managing director, Updeep Singh, who joined Itema in March 2014, bringing with him an impressive career in the textile market.
“This trade fair is an opportunity for Itema to present its strength, highlighting the unparalleled growth of our Company in the Indian market, the highly structured and effective sales and after-sales service and, of course, our state-of-the-art weaving machines,” Updeep Singh said.
Fulvio Carlo Toma, Itema Group’s sales & marketing director, added: “We strongly believe that we can equip Indian customers with the right technology and bespoke solutions.”
“Whilst at the same time providing great value for money – an overall win-win package which will undoubtedly further bolster Indian weavers’ renowned creativity and success,” he added.
2014 has been the year of many product launches for Itema, namely two rapier models, R9000 and R880DT (terry) in March this year, as well as two new versions of the successful A9500 airjet launched at ITMA ASIA in June 2014.
“With the new and extended airjet portfolio, we now offer our customers exactly what they require, no more no less,” said Ferdinando De Micheli, area sales manager, India and Key Accounts.
Itema’s airjet A9500 is available in three distinct models; the A9500 original, A9500p and A9500e, all of which offer dependable high-speed performance, consistent fabric quality and versatility.
According to Itema, repeat orders and consistent outperformance in customer trials, also in India, demonstrate that Itema airjet A9500 is a winning choice, to ensure weavers success.
Itema has also in its fold the rapier loom R9500, launched just two years ago, now generating half of all turnover, in what, it called, a remarkable feat and demonstration of overwhelming market acceptance.
“The rapier R9500 is, by far, the most advanced rapier weaving machine, with guaranteed maximum versatility for the most sophisticated home textiles and upholstery styles,” it said.
Itema is the only manufacturer in the world to provide the top three shuttleless weft insertion technologies; rapier, airjet and projectile. (AR)
