Dear Friends and Partners,

From 1892 till today

In 2017, the VDMA looks back on its 125-year history.

In its anniversary year, the VDMA took new media paths to make the industry’s achievements accessible to a broader audience. A series of multimedia reports shows how machines help humans make progress come true and meet challenges like energy, mobility,infrastructure and health.



The Textile Machinery Association was significantly involved in preparation of the multimedia reports on the topic of lightweight design and construction. The reports are published on www.humans-machines-progress.com


Engineers of tomorrow


In 2017, the Walter Reiners-Stiftung (Foundation) of the German textile machinery industry for promotion of young engineers celebrated its 50th anniversary. This was acknowledged at the Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile Conference in November as part of the main theme „Textile education and research as a key issue for Germany and Europe“.


ITMA – Innovating the World of Textiles

In preparation for ITMA 2019, we are supporting the work on a new orientation of the former Research & Education Area as ITMA Innovation Lab.


Thus, in addition to new research results, the former Speakers Platform should show new business opportunities with application-oriented topics and panel discussions and offer added value to visitors.

The team of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association wishes you a successful 2018!
