The Noman Group extends Monforts line-up

The Noman Group, Monforts' largest customer in Bangladesh and in 2010, the country's largest exporter of garments, has invested in new Monforts technology to ensure that the group retains its premier position.

The Noman Group, one of the largest vertically integrated textiles producers in Bangladesh and in 2010 the country's biggest exporter of garments, has added a new Monforts Montex stenter to its line-up as part of a massive investment aimed at keeping the group in its premier position.

Noman, originally founded as a trading company in Dhaka in 1968 and which now owns 19 mills and employs a workforce of more than 40,000, is Monforts' largest customer in Bangladesh.

The new Montex 6500 stenter was supplied and installed by Monforts representative, Bengal Technological Corporation, at the Noman Weaving Mills plant at Sreepur, on the outskirts of Dhaka.

Noman already uses a range of Monforts technology in its continuous dyeing and sanforising lines with Monfortex and Toptex shrinkage units for woven and knitted fabrics. These sanforizers offer increased residual shrinkage, higher production speeds, and reduced water consumption for cooling and substantial time savings for blanket changes.

Gabriel Tagasa, advisor at the group's multiple outlets in the Sreepur Zone, said that Noman has invested in new equipment throughout 2010 to greatly expand capacity in the spinning and dyeing in its woven and knit garment units; ensuring that the group has the capacity to maintain its position as a major exporter.

Installing the new Monforts 6500-6F stenter, which joins two other Monforts stenters, will allow Noman to step up its output of dyed and knitted fabrics and offer faster and more flexible production times to its customers.

“All our work is exported,” says Mr Tagasa. “Consequently, the Montex 6500 is an important investment for us. It adds to the enormous flexibility we already have, which is substantially based on our existing Monforts technology.”

“A lot of our customers are producing niche fashion items, sportswear and so on, often in relatively small production runs. We can therefore produce what is needed to meet their design and quality criteria.

“Meeting costs is also extremely important during this period of intensely tough competition, and we have to stay ahead of our domestic competitors as well as the international producers.

“We work very closely with Bengal Technologies and Monforts to achieve this, and regard our relationships as a real working partnership.”

“In addition to the size and capacity of the Montex 6500, we are very impressed by the machine's energy saving operation,” says Mr Tagasa. “There is a great shortage of energy supply in our country, and although we are fully backed-up by generators, we are always very conscious of the need to reduce our energy consumption.”

Noman has leapt into first place from its previous position in the number three slot, benefitting from the global slowdown that has created a windfall for Bangladesh textiles importers in general.
