Only a few countries boast first-class textile machinery production. Italy is the second leading producer of textile machinery worldwide and the technological level of its production is recognized as setting a high standard.

In 2008, production of Italian textile machinery amounted to 2.0 billion Euros, 79 percent of which was exported to about 130 countries, including the main export area Asia (43 percent), Europe (34 percent), South America (11 percent), North America (5 percent) and Africa (7 percent).

The supply of Italian textile machinery is characterized by a range that includes pre-spinning and spinning machinery; knitting and hosiery machinery; twisting, reeling, winding machinery; dyeing; printing and finishing machinery; pre-weaving and weaving machinery; and laundry dry-cleaning and ironing machinery.

Italian machines process all natural fibers (wool, cotton, silk, flax) and man-made fibers (polyester, acrylic, polyamides) to meet the needs of a modern textile industry.
