ColorJet is the first Indian digital textile printing company to strike a platinum sponsorship deal at ITMA 2019 and will have a stand at Hall-3, Booth No-B102.
ITMA is the world’s leading showcase for textile and garment technology, including textile printing, and it provides the ideal platform for the industry to present a wide rangeof the latest technologies.
