Floods affect textile production in Thailand
Nov '11
Large-scale floods have affected textile and garment production in Thailand with operations being stopped in many companies.

Operations continue to remain suspended at the Thai Fujibo Textile Co. Ltd., producer and marketer of spun yarn. Initially, the company planned to close manufacturing operations for three days from October 22. However, the flood waters did not recede even after the end of the three-day period.

No production has taken place at two other companies - Siam Kurabo Co. Ltd. and Thai Kurabo Co. Ltd. – since October 21. While Siam Kurabo manufactures and markets cotton yarn, Thai Kurabo manufactures and markets cotton and synthetic blended yarn and textiles. Both the production plants are located on the same site.

Among the Teijin Group's industries located in Thailand, Teijin (Thailand) Ltd. and Teijin Polyester (Thailand) Ltd. have temporarily stopped operations. Both these companies manufacture polyester filament yarn (PFY) and polyester staple fibre (PSF). Teijin Polyester also produces industrial fibres.

Since the Thai subsidiaries produce about 30 percent of the yarn imported into Japan by Teijin Fibres, the company has planned to take several measures to reduce the affect of the closure on the supply of stocks.

Another Japan-based company, Toray Industries, Inc. has also shutdown operations at the Bangkok and Ayutthaya plants of Thai Toray Synthetics. The effect of this closure, however, would be slight as the amount of raw yarn supplied by these plants to Japan is not very large.

Innerwear manufacturer Jintana Fujibo Corporation has not been directly affected by floods.
