“Before welcoming our customers at ITMA, I would like to share with you a proud moment for French Textile Equipment. Kristian Blummenfelt, the Norwegian athlete won the men’s triathlon Olympic gold medal. The Trimtex Skinsuit he was wearing for swimming, cycling, and running was made of a fabric designed and produced by a French company. To produce the very fine and technical fabric which incorporates an unusually high percentage of elastane covered polymer, a specific equipment from one of our members was needed. A highly technical finishing equipment for a highly technical fabric and, at the end of the story—a gold medal! Our members will deserve many such medals at ITMA in MilanG. Let’s tell all our visitors that we will be very honoured to welcome them.”
