Speaking at the inauguration, Arvind Ganpat Sawant said, “I feel every manufacturing company should not only strengthen themselves but also they should make sufficient profit to generate employment. Further, their products should be globally competitive. Our government is significantly concerned about this. Toward this, income tax has been reduced to 25 percent for companies with turnover below 400 crores.” “To be globally competitive, we need to make a joint venture. In our over-populated country, technology should be used to generate more employment,” he added.Welcoming the delegates, V. Anbu, Director General and CEO of IMTMA said, “Shows such as the Delhi Machine Tool Expo are enablers to take technologies closer to the SMEs and pave way for their continual growth. At this Delhi Machine Tool Expo 2019, we have over 150 exhibitors displaying state-of-the-art technology solutions and innovations for both metal-cutting and metal-forming machine tools. Apart from India, four countries: China, Germany, Japan, and Taiwan are participating. We also have Group Participation from China and Taiwan.”
The Expo covered the entire gamut of metalworking machine tools for both metal cutting and metal forming including automation and robotics, tooling systems, CAD/CAM and other technologies which are essential for today’s manufacturing. P Ramadas, President, IMTMA said, “Although at present, we are witnessing some headwinds in manufacturing, I optimistically believe that markets would open up in the coming quarters and the industry would bounce back as the economy improves.”  He also urged the government to take suitable measures to extend credit to SMEs and connected financial reforms.
IMTMA Background Formed in 1946, the Indian Machine Tool industry IMTMA was started when around 20 machine tool manufacturers joined hands. Over a period of time, the association has grown in size and strength and has emerged as the voice of the machine tool industry. Started in the Godrej Campus in Vikhroli, Mumbai, the Association later shifted its office to New Delhi and then moved to its own premises within the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre in Bengaluru.

In 1969, IMTMA hosted the flagship event ‘IMTEX’ – a leading B2B Machine tool exhibition in South and South East Asia, which is now hosted at the BIEC. The exhibition has grown in size and today is the largest machine tool exhibition in South and South East Asia.
