Itema Group announces appointment of Ugo Ghilardi as new CEO and moves towards a new stage of development and consolidation
PRESS RELEASE – 06/03/2020
March 2, Colzate (Bergamo, Italy) – Itema Group, multinational group part of the Radici world of companies manufacturing advanced weaving solutions including weaving machines, spare parts and integrated services and with majority interests in companies active in complementary businesses, announced that its Board of Directors has named Ugo Ghilardi, effective March 2, 2020, as Chief Executive Officer.
Ugo Ghilardi, who is taking over from Carlo Rogora at the helm of the Colzate-based company, during his remarkable professional experience held positions of increasing responsibility in leading companies in the mechanical and automation industries. Mr. Ghilardi, in fact, boasts a long career in DMG Mori – German-Japanese multinational company world leader in the production and marketing of machine tools – where he held a variety of senior management positions, including Divisional Board Member Sales & Service EMEA, Chief Operating Officer EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) with direct responsibility of Sales & Service for all European markets and DMG Mori Europe CEO.
Gianfranco Ceruti, President of the Itema Board of Directors – commented on the choice of Ghilardi as the new CEO of Itema Group: “Ugo Ghilardi brings to the position a wealth of knowledge in international markets and an array of experiences in the mechanical industry, thus allowing us to count on fundamental skills to drive a company like Itema. We are convinced that Ghilardi will guide our Group with foresight and vision, reinforcing our position on the market and our structural solidity also due to his extraordinary mastery of operations activities and to his customer-oriented attitude”.
Key factors that led the Itema Board of Directors to name Ghilardi as new CEO are his deep-rooted closeness to the company and his strategic vision – as stated by Mr. Angelo Radici – on behalf of Gianni Radici’s family heirs who hold the 60% of Itema shares and in agreement with Arizzi and Torri families to which the remaining shares belong – “Ghilardi, in addition to the excellent understanding of global business scenarios, comes from our own territory and knows very well its traditional and historical vocation in the textile industry: I strongly believe that crucial aspect for us is to entrust the leadership of our Group to a man of great managerial capacity to maintain our traditional excellent level of quality in the solutions provided to our existing customers as well as guiding the company towards new business expansions. All this in line with the sustainability mission that has always distinguished us and that, I am sure, Ghilardi will translate into concrete actions”.
Mr. Ghilardi extensive global leadership experience and proven track record in the industry will be dedicated to consolidating the Group’s current position and conquering new market shares, as well as developing the Itema industrial capacity and prowess, that always played a role of primary importance for the company and its shareholders.
A goal which is not easy and certainly not self-evident since, even though markets still offer great opportunities to be seized, the international situation reveals uncertainty due to a series of fluctuations on a global basis and a macro-economic dynamic that generates instability and insecurity.
Itema new CEO’s dedication and motivation are, however, the highest possible and, according to Mr. Ghilardi, Itema’s history and particularly the way the company was founded, its brands creation and the traditional quality level guaranteed to the market in recent years, represent the basic philosophy to rely on to confidently deal with the challenges the company must confront to further grow.
In the first declaration since his appointment, Mr. Ghilardi stated “I strongly believe in Itema, in its employees and in its products. Innovation remains the core added value for the continued growth of this company and we will pursue it in all our choices, from product development to operations management. Our mission is, now more than ever, to deliver to our Customers not only advanced and innovative products, but an all-inclusive assistance as integral part of the process. As I am used to say, our customer is not outside the company, he is exactly beside us, deserving to be considered as a real partner. I will focus on reinforcing Itema’s strong positions in many important markets for the future and on serving Itema’s customers to deliver long-term growth and value creation.”
With Ugo Ghilardi at the head of Itema, the company is ready to face with renewed enthusiasm new challenges and targets, with the confidence that results from the awareness of being able to count on an experienced, solid leader attentive to customers’ needs and focused on leading the group towards new heights of success.

Itema exhibits best-in-class weaving innovations and corporate updates at ITMACH INDIA December 5 – 8, 2019 Booth C1
PRESS RELEASE – 18/11/2019
Colzate (Italy) and Ahmedabad (India) – Itema, the global leading provider of best-in-class weaving solutions, including weaving machines, OEM spare parts and integrated services, is exhibiting at ITMACH India (Booth C1) from December 5th – 8th at The Exhibition Centre in Ahmedabad.
Itema in India
India represents one of the most interesting textile industries in the world, featuring numerous textile districts throughout the country and producing a wide range of woven fabrics. Over the years, the evolution of Indian weaving mills has been remarkable, due to the increasing introduction of the most modern and advanced weaving machinery and the ability to produce ever-more sophisticated fabrics, including technical textiles.
Itema is a trusted partner of many Indian weaving mills, from large textile conglomerates to smaller textile manufacturers, providing the most advanced and user-friendly weaving technology and real-time assistance, from the initial negotiation stage and throughout the whole machine life cycle.
Itema is present in India with a fully-operational branch since 2002, counting more than 50 employees, with sales and after-sales teams, technical support and advanced repair centers in Mumbai, Coimbatore, New Dehli and Ichalkaranji to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions, with a complete offering and range of services to its valuable Customers in the Indian market.
The Italian based Company is participating at ITMACH in Ahmedabad since the event constitutes a valuable opportunity to showcase the Itema weaving innovations and the company latest updates to the renowned Gujarat textile industry.
Gujarat is, in fact, one of the largest textile Regions in India with several textile manufacturing companies and with the biggest cotton production in the country.
Itema Weaving Innovations
From the weaving technology point of view, the Itema team will deeply illustrate to ITMACH visitors the latest novelties and advancements implemented by the company.
In particular, on the airjet weft insertion side – which is the most diffused weaving technology in the Region – Itema launched on the market during ITMA 2019 in Barcelona the Second Generation of its airjet model, the A9500-2.
The A9500-2, the Second Generation of the Itema airjet A9500 and A9500p, sums up all the best features of its predecessors and further enhances machine performances, cost savings and textile efficiency. Main machine innovations are:
- New and optimized pneumatic platform: the weft insertion cycle is significantly improved leading to a quicker system response when handling air load and pressure, thus guaranteeing minimized vibrations and higher structural reliability
- Revised machine structure to increase the air tank capacity ensuring superior textile performances even at the highest speeds
- The brand-new Bi-Power stretch nozzle which ensures perfect weft catching pick by pick, air consumption reduction and increased fabric quality by keeping the weft perfectly straight in the fabric
- The brand-new heald frames SKYFRAME – Itema exclusive proprietary technology – made of aluminium and carbon and designed by Itemalab™ in cooperation with Lamiflex, thanks to the superior lightness and sturdiness, allow to run at the highest speeds without compromising reliability and resistance
Gujarat Region is famous for the high concentration of denim weaving mills, and Itema provides specific and unique-in-the-industry features to weave denim on its airjet machine.
The popular recent trend to weave stretch and super stretch denim fabrics with dedicated weft yarns inspired Itema to create and patent the innovative BLC – Brush Lycra Clamp – nozzle to weave elastic weft yarns. Thanks to the BLC nozzle, the weft is held without movable parts to ensure superior fabric quality and reliability. The device is simple and yet ingenious: the BLC is fixed into the main nozzle performing the valuable task of keeping the elastic weft yarn avoiding defects due to the continuous air flow.
The Itema iREED® – developed by Itema in cooperation with Schoch (an Itema Group company starting from October 2019) – is considered as the benchmark by the industry and significantly reduces the air consumption whilst guaranteeing a higher efficient weft insertion. The new reed tunnel shape and new position of the relay nozzle optimize the air flow in the reed channel for a higher efficiency weft insertion. The saving is also due to a reduced air pressure and to the single hole relay nozzle, which, at the same time, greatly reduces the need for maintenance of your Itema airjet weaving machine.
The Itema A9500-2, featuring these advanced innovations, ensures the weaver the possibility to weave faster, producing better fabrics and with a smarter usage of resources.
On the rapier side, Itema is nowadays leading the denim market production on rapier weaving technology thanks to the prowess of its R9500-2denim. Unique in the industry, the R9500-2denim is equipped with:
- iSAVER™ – the Itemalab™ mechatronic marvel which completely eliminates the weft and warp waste on the left-hand side of the fabric. iSAVER™ represents the unique real and tangible innovation introduced in weaving since longtime. Establishing a new benchmark in sustainable weaving thanks to a reduction of raw material wastage and guaranteeing a significant money saving, iSAVER™ is gathering an exceptional interest from worldwide denim weavers and is already successfully running in some of the most famous denim mills
- The denim-dedicated SK UltraLight Weft Transfer System that, thanks to reduced dimensions and lightweight rapiers and to the TLC-Triple Layer Carbon tape, ensures maximum textile efficiency and extended components lifetime
- iBOOSTER package, designed to literally boost machine’s performances, without compromising reliability. When running extremely fast, key rapier insertion system components are subject to considerable stress. Thanks to a deep materials study made by Itemalab™, in close cooperation with Lamiflex, Itema succeeded in developing new reinforced tapes, sprocket wheels and micro smart coolers to ensure extended lifetime. Moreover, a revolutionary dete
ction system through sensors and digital intelligence allows a real-time control of the components health status
Many more weaving solutions – both on airjet and rapier technology and covering the whole range of fabrics – will be deeply discussed by our team during the exhibition days.
Itema acquisition of Schoch
Moreover, ITMACH will be the first formal platform to introduce to the Indian textile industry stakeholders the new partnership between Itema and Schoch, the leading producer of reeds and accessories for textile looms headquartered in Italy and in India, of which Itema recently acquired majority stakes.
Following to the acquisition of majority stakes in Lamiflex completed in 2017 and the recent agreement reached with PTMT (ex Panter) finalized to the establishment of Itematech – the Itema Technical Textiles Division, the agreement signed with Schoch group represents a further significant step for the synergic development of key weaving machine’s accessories as well as a remarkable reinforcement of Schoch commercial network.

Itema exhibits best-in-class weaving innovations for technical fabrics at TECHTEXTIL INDIA September 13th – 15th, 2017 Hall 6 – Stand C109
NEWS – 12/09/2017
Colzate (Italy) and Mumbai (India) – Itema, the largest privately-owned manufacturer of best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, is exhibiting at Techtextil India (Hall 6 – C109) from September 13th to 15th at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
Itema is registering an upward trend in inquiries for advanced weaving machines from weavers of technical fabrics and the Italian technology major – with over 180 years of combined expertise from the merger of three historic brands, such as Sulzer, Somet and Vamatex – expects that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.
Focusing on the Indian market, several trade and textile experts identify technical textiles as the market segment of the future since the internal demand is constantly growing reflecting the worldwide trend.
Itema is present in India since 2002, counting more than 50 employees, with sales and after-sales teams, technical support and advanced repair centers in Mumbai, Coimbatore, New Dehli and Ichalkaranji to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions, with a complete offering and service to its valuable Customers in the Indian market.
Itema is uniquely positioned to offer technical textile manufacturers the top three weft insertion technologies Rapier, Airjet and Projectile, in what is the most comprehensive portfolio on the market today for technical applications to weave the widest range of fabrics.
The rapier R9500 loom is by far the most successful rapier loom in recent history. The continuous roll-out of customized special versions tailored for technical applications, including OPW Airbag, Fiber Glass, Bolting Cloth, among others, the wide weaving width up to 540 cm, as well as new and advanced devices make the R9500 by Itema the perfect machine for the manufacture of the full range of technical textiles, including ones with the finest monofilament yarn, multifilament yarn with high tenacity, and multiple pick insertion fabrics.
The airjet A9500 – the most innovative airjet weaving machine in the market – inspires the curiosity and sparks the interest from real technology buffs and has already amassed important references, especially in medical applications and automotive fabrics.
Looking at specific technical applications, the Itema airjet A9500 provides undeniable benefits, matching unparalleled performances and the highest productivity with superior textile efficiency.
The Itema A9500 is pre-set for independent motorized Jacquard with no cardan shaft, allowing to weave specific technical textiles (such as Airbag OPW) with no speed limitations.
When it comes to weaving very high density fabrics, the A9500 is customized with dedicated devices to ensure best-in-class results. Key components are reinforced to ensure optimized machine control and reliability whilst Itema patented devices guarantee reduced consumption and superior textile efficiency.
Technical fabrics are the specialty of the legendary and unique projectile P7300HP due to the unparalleled versatility and reliability of its weft insertion system. The unmatchable uniqueness of the positive weft transfer consists in the single insertion driven by the projectile, which catches the weft and carries it directly with no exchanges, providing unmatched efficiency.
The P7300HP continues to harness great interest from projectile weaving aficionados and represents an unbeaten and unbeatable benchmark for those looking to weave the very widest fabrics – up to 655cm weaving width – and high-specialty materials, such as agrotextile, geotextile and carpet backing fabrics. When it comes to weaving tape yarns, the Itema projectile weaving machine provides the highest performance compared to all the other insertion technologies in the market.
