Switzerland - May 2013 - Just a few months after the successful Open House held at its Italian
headquarters, evidence of the new image and new product strategy: Itema will be on display at
Istanbul ITM 2013. With a focused approach, Itema incorporated the best of its revered brands
Somet, Sultex & Vamatex behind one single name and one single brand - "Itema". With many
years of success, the result of this collaborative effort is an important milestone for the company
and a benchmark of unparalleled quality and excellence for the global weaving industry.

the focus of participation at Istanbul ITM 2013.Important results have already been achieved in
terms of sales for the new Itema machines in Turkey. The first installations have already provided
repeat orders in both insertion systems: Air jet and Rapier. Customers illustrate their
satisfaction by honoring Itema with the trust of repeat orders in different sectors and
applications like bed-sheeting, upholstery, and home furnishings.Notwithstanding, strong demand
continues among the most revered Turkish companies for the Projectile machine, with significant
sales in denim and technical sectors.The Turkish weaving market is one of the most important
markets for Itema and the primary goal of Itema's presence at ITM 2013 is to showcase the
unparalleled quality of its new products to the Turkish customers. Our customers are our
partners, their success is our mission!
