Green plant of Giant Textiles to be operational in Dec
Nov '11
Giant Textiles Ltd., a concern of the Bangladesh-based Giant Group, will commence operations in December at its newly set up green unit at Gazipur in the outskirts of Dhaka.

Mr. Faruque Hassan, Managing Director of Giant Group, told fibre2fashion, “The production at our new factory would start in December and the unit will be completely operational from June 2012.”

Describing the new unit as environment-friendly, he said, “It is a green factory as it is built in such a way that during the day time we can use the direct sunlight and conserve electricity. Solar panels have been installed to produce electricity using solar energy. The unit also has an effluent treatment plant, a water treatment plant and a sewage treatment plant.”

Talking about the machinery in the plant, he stated, “All the machines are latest models, eco-friendly and efficient. The fabric dyeing machines from brand called I-Master uses dyes with lowest water-liquor ratio of around 1:3.2. Thus, it is much cost-effective due to less water, dye and chemical usage. These machines also consume less electricity, which will be helpful as energy is a big problem in Bangladesh.”

Providing a brief about the new unit, he stated, “The new unit has a capacity of 22 tons/day of knitting and dyeing, and consists of a washing factory, a garment dyeing and printing factory, embroidery units as well as label making factory. Thus, the factory has all facilities under one roof, which will enable good service to customers and on-time delivery.”

“We have taken loans from banks in addition to in-house investment for the Tk 2 billion unit. The quality of fabrics and garments produced at this unit will be superior as it will be manufactured for high-end products from top brands like Hugo Boss, Marks & Spencer, etc. Besides Europe, we are working in the American markets. In Asia, we have a good market in Korea, Malaysia and India, he revealed.

Giant will touch new horizons once this unit becomes completely operational,” he concluded.
