As many as 19 Italian textile machinery manufacturers will present themselves in the exhibition area organized by the Italian Trade Agency and the Association of Italian Manufacturers of Textile Machinery (ACIMIT), at Colombiatex 2022 from January 25-27. The Italian textile machinery sector will once again play a lead role in Colombia with its grand presence.

Bonino, Btsr, Color Service, Crosta, Faddis, Flainox, Kairos, Mactec, Mcs, Nexia, Ratti, Reggiani, Santoni, Savio, Smit, Sperotto Rimar, and Tonello will be the exhibiting ACIMIT member companies at the 3-day event, ACIMIT said in a press release.

“For years, the Colombian market has been one of the main South American destinations for Italian textile machinery exports. The development of a national fashion sector makes the demand for advanced textile technologies by Colombian companies even more dynamic,”.

Italian exports to the important South American market in the first nine months of 2021 reached a value of €9.3 million, in strong growth (over 130 percent), not only compared to the value recorded last year, but also to that of 2019. More than half of the demand for Italian machinery in Colombia refers to finishing machines.

“The presence at Colombiatex of Italian companies with their own personnel is a further sign of confidence for the beginning of 2022. Compared to previous editions of the event, we note a greater number of Italian exhibitors, although the health emergency is far from over and there is great uncertainty characterizing the world economic scenario. The Italian companies exhibiting in Medellin testify to the optimism with which the entire Italian textile machinery industry is looking towards this 2022 year,” explained Zucchi.
