The International Kahramanmaraş Textile Machinery Exhibition KTM 2022, which will held for the ninth time on the dates of 03-05 November, due to its location, took place among the major regional organizations in a very short span of time. The participants who left the previous seven organizations with great satisfaction, aside from engaging in new cooperation, also seized the opportunity to quickly receive feedback from textile manufacturers with respect to latest technologies.
The textile sector continues to be one the leading and most important sectors in the economy of Kahramanmaraş. The sector, going beyond the standards of Turkey, particularly with the acceleration gained in technology and quality, has reached to a level where it can comfortably compete in the global textile markets in terms of technology and quality.
In the textile industry, being at the largest sector position of the city, annually 359 thousand tons of yarn, 138 million meters of woven fabric, 49 million meters of denim, 122 thousand tons of knitted fabrics and 22.7 million units of apparel is produced. In addition, 191 thousand tons of dyeing and bleaching operations are carried out.
