Orders rise for Italian machinery
Orders of textile machinery for the second quarter of the year showed an increase, thanks to demand from foreign markets. Raffaella Carabelli, President of ACIMIT, said: ¨Good results from abroad, but we´re still concerned about poor domestic demand.¨
For the second quarter of 2014, the textile machinery orders index elaborated by the research department at the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), recorded a six per cent increase compared to the previous quarter, for an absolute value of 86 points.
This growth in orders came entirely from the foreign markets, for which an increase of 8 per cent was recorded for the period.
