“Share your idea of any textile equipment or machine with us and our excellent R&D team will design and deliver a tailor-made solution”, says a confident Parth Panchal. Parth aged 29, is Director (Sales) and also overlooks export sales of KB Corporation, a textile machinery and equipment manufacturer.

KB Corporation established in 1967 by Mr JR Panchal, offers complete range of dyeing to drying machines in batch/continuous form. It also has in its product portfolio, size preparation equipments and colour kitchen equipments for denim production. It also specializes in delivering tailor-made solutions for the wet processing & finishing industry.

The major product mix of KB Corporation includes, Cabinet Yarn Dyeing Machine, Continues Yarn Dryers, Hydro extractor, Continuous Dryer, Size Preparation Vessels, Size Storage Vessels, Braiding Machines, etc.

Ahmedabad based, KB Corporation was one of the early pioneers of open-width machines in the mid-1970s, when the technology at that time in use was, rope dyeing and bleaching. It has a modern machinery production plant and is also in the process of setting up a new plant nearby Ahmedabad.

Within India, KB Corporation supplies to prestigious textile majors like Arvind, Raymond, Soma Textiles, Ashima Syntex, Reliance Industries, Asarwa Mills, etc.

“50 percent of our textile machines and equipments are tailor-made as per the requirements of our clients, which is our specialization”, says the young Parth Panchal. Since the last few years, we have also started manufacturing rotary screen printing machines.

He adds, “We are mainly exporting to countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Kenya, Sudan and many other countries in both the continents. I am proud to say that we have been exporting since the early 1970s”.

“Within one year of my joining the company, we managed to bag a major order from Ahmedabad based Soma Textiles, for their sizing and colour kitchen range for their upcoming denim fabric plant and is an achievement which is close to my heart”, says Parth, when asked to share an achievement.

“Recently we exported a rotary printing machine to Nigeria. The fabric printed on the machine is made from PP fibre, which is 100 percent non-absorbent. The challenge was to dry the colour print on the fabric in just two seconds before the fabric reaches the second head of the printer. We successfully installed heaters on each individual printing head to tackle the challenge”, he informs with confidence.

Discussing their future plans, he says, “We are setting up a new plant nearby Ahmedabad and plan to double our existing production capacity. We now also plan to target other industries like chemicals and pharmaceuticals with our existing range.”

KB Corporation has bagged a gold medal for import substitution in manufacture of Drum type Nylon Tow Washing Machine from the Association of Merchants (India) Bombay. It is also a recipient of a bronze medal for the same machine from the Government of India, both in 1976.
