ColorDigital (Germany) joins ITMF as Corporate Member

As a start-up, ColorDigital GmbH had applied for the ITMF Start-up Award 2022 and was selected to present in one of the two “Start-up Sessions” at the ITMA Annual Conference 2022 in Davos, Switzerland.

ColorDigital– the company behind DMIx® – was founded in 2013 in Cologne, Germany.

DMIx provides a unique and holistic SaaS – an ecosystem combining industrial manufacturing processes and digital product development workflows to an end-to-end solution for brands and suppliers in the textile, fashion, and lifestyle industry.

Based on the DMIx digital twin standard the system enables the exchange of all relevant data for color and material development, 3D virtualization and the real time exchange of product master data between stakeholders and relevant software solutions.

DMIx and its multiple modules enable qualitative efficiency in collaboration between all tier stages of the supply chain leading to highly efficient processes and a sustainable way of working – reducing unnecessary physical sampling while saving time and cost.

Mr. Gerd Willschütz, Manager Director of ColorDigital said that “it is important for start-ups to be in touch with industry players from the entire textile value chain. Being part of an international forum like ITMF helps to meet and connect with industry players from around the globe. Furthermore, it is important to fully understand the needs of the industry. Equally relevant is to have ITMF explain the value of new technologies and to be part of the discussions about industry trends and initiatives.”

“We are delighted that ColorDigital is joining ITMF as a Corporate Member. After having presented their DMIx solution at the ITMF Annual Conference 2022 as one of the recipients of the ITMF Start-up Awards 2022 it is important to stay connected. Becoming a corporate member of the Federation will broaden and deepen the company’s access to the global textile industry. We are convinced that it is mutual beneficial if well established companies and start- ups like ColorDigital come together on ITMF’s platform”, stated Dr. Christian Schindler, Director General of ITMF.

Dimpora (Switzerland) joins ITMF as Corporate Member

As a start-up, dimpora was selected to present in one of the two “Start-up Sessions” at the ITMF Annual Conference 2022 in Davos, Switzerland. In this context, they were offered a two- year complimentary Corporate Membership.

dimpora is an award-winning materials start-up that reconciles performance clothing and sustainability by developing non-toxic (PFAS-free, DMF-free), waterproof, and highly breathable membranes. Their patented technology platform relies on scientific expertise and continuous innovation to empower people to enjoy nature without leaving a trace.

Dr. Mario Stucki, CEO said that “for start-ups and scale-ups it is important to be affiliated with organisations whose members are serving the international markets and have an excellent knowledge of the global market structures and the potential regional and global demand. Therefore, ITMF is an attractive platform that we can use and be an active part of.”

Dr. Christian Schindler, Director General of ITMF stated that “ITMF members had welcome very much the concept of inviting start-up companies to the Federation’s ITMF Annual Conference. Bringing together representatives of well-established textile organisations and companies with newcomers from around the world is mutually beneficial. Start-ups bring a new perspective to existing challenges and offer new solutions applying new technologies. At the same time, they can connect with mature companies that know the markets very well. This interaction is beneficial for everyone involved and will help the textile industry to identify new technologies that help to overcome challenges.”
