Born with the goal to design the platform for the “loom of the future” and breakthrough solutions for the textile industry, a new structure has been announced for ItemaLab, the Itema Advanced Innovation Department. Itemalab will now become an independent company and widen its field of action, providing customers and partners with system engineering and business process re-engineering skills.
The innovation incubator was opened in 2014 by the provider of advanced weaving solutions, Itema SpA, Colzate/Italy, at Kilometro Rosso innovation district in Bergamo/Italy. With a team made up by 70 engineers and specialized professionals, the Textile division of ItemaLab will continue to respond to the innovation needs of Itema Group and the textile industry. The new Industrial division will, instead, become the reference point for all the industrial companies looking for a partner to study advanced solutions to digitalize and reshape industrial products and processes.
Multidisciplinarity is one of the strong points of ItemaLab: it makes possible to offer transversal solutions and a significant added value in terms of innovation, sustainability, digitalization and system engineering, by transferring the know-how gained in the textile machinery world to other sectors.
