Italian textile machinery manufacturers are proud to help their customers spin "cloth into gold", through meeting the full spectrum of their production needs. A majority of Italian manufacturers are actually small to medium sized enterprises that provide the most custom-made spinning, weaving, knitting, finishing, laundry and dry cleaning machines on the market. This fact has allowed them to be more flexible and responsive to their clients' needs, while still offering highly specialized products. In a recent survey this fact was affirmed. Here the majority of American clothing production companies interviewed thought highly of Italian-made equipment. They particularly noted the quality and customization Italian high-tech machinery has given them in maintaining their competitive edge. In such a dynamic market, trends change not only annually - but seasonally as well, for which Italian manufacturers always answer the call!
