Indian Textile Accessories and Machinery Manufacturers Association was founded in 1948 as the Textile Stores and Machinery Merchants Association with its first meeting held on June 28 that year. As manufacturers started joining the pioneering trade body, its name was changed to reflect the widening membership and it was called the Association of Merchants and Manufacturers of Textile Stores and Machinery (India) (AMMTSM) and in 2002, on the occasion of our Diamond Jubilee, the association unveiled a new name – ITAMMA – that reflects the comprehensive nature of activities undertaken in the service of the textile engineering industry.
The Association is now the pioneer organisation representing both trade and industry connected with textile machinery, components, accessories, stores items etc. The change in the name of the association was symbolic of the transformation that was taking place in the area of textile engineering and other textile ancillary industries.
ITAMMA is accredited with “Diamond Grade” National level BMO accreditation through NABET . This recognition showcases the Association for its abilities in enhancing the growth prospects of its members through its role as a representing body of the Textile Engineering Industry in India.
