The Textile industry is a major export earner for the country by export of cotton yarn, garments, fabrics including non-woven fabrics. The Indian textile industry is one the most important industries for the Indian economy considering its contribution to employment generation, industrial output and foreign exchange earnings.The textile industry occupies a unique position in the Indian economy being one of the oldest and largest industries in India and is highly fragmented. It is divided in four segments spinning, weaving or knitting, processing and garmenting. It provides one of the most basic needs of people.
The Indian economy including the Textile Industry has been facing unprecedented period of difficulty, due to slowing down of GDP growth rate, rupee deprecation and increasing current account deficit. Considering the importance of the textile sector, the Central Government has implemented important policies that are expected to catalyse the growth of the Indian textile. Under the Make in India initiative, investment opportunities for foreign companies and entrepreneurs are available across the entire value chain of synthetics, value-added and specialty fabrics, fabric processing setups for all kinds of natural and synthetic textiles, technical textiles, garments, and retail brands.
Our Industry Segment:
The primary business of our company is manufacturing of non woven fabric products.
Nonwoven fabric is a fabric-like material made from long fibers, bonded together by chemical, mechanical, heat or solvent treatment. The term is used in the textile manufacturing industry to denote fabrics, such as felt, which are neither woven nor knitted. Nonwoven materials typically lack strength unless densified or reinforced by a backing. In recent years, nonwovens have become an alternative to polyurethane foam.
Nonwoven fabrics are engineered fabrics that may be a have a limited life, single-use fabric or a very durable fabric. Nonwoven fabrics provide specific functions such as absorbency, liquid repellence, resilience, stretch, softness, strength, flame retardancy, washability, cushioning, thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, filtration, use as a bacterial barrier and sterility. These properties are often combined to create fabrics suited for specific jobs, while achieving a good balance between product use-life and cost. They can mimic the appearance, texture and strength of a woven fabric and can be as bulky as the thickest paddings. In combination with other materials they provide a spectrum of products with diverse properties, and are used alone or as components of apparel, home furnishings, health care, engineering, industrial and consumer goods.
A large number of fibers are available n the market, but the Nonwovens market is mainly dominated by three fibers, namely polyolefins, polyester, and rayon. These three fiber types make up a substantial part of the overall Nonwovens markets for fibers.
Nonwovens find numerous applications ranging from baby diapers to industrial high performance textiles. Some of the important areas where nonwovens are treated as primary alternative for traditional textiles as Geotextiles, materials for building, thermal and sound insulating materials, hygienic and health care textiles and automotive industries. Nonwovens are also used in cover stocks, agriculture, aerospace, home furnishings etc
With the nonwovens successfully moving into more technical end-uses, the fiber requirements have also become more important with regard to the fiber properties. The cooperation between fiber supplier and fabric producers is now seen as important criteria for more advancement to come about in the nonwovens field.
Incepted in the year 1995, the Company is one of a significant player in Non-Woven Products such as Non- Woven Fabrics, Non-Woven Carpets, Non-Woven Felts, Non-Woven Designer Carpets and many others.
