UK's Camira Fabrics sets up state-of-the-art dyehouse

Camira Fabrics, the UK-based manufacturer of environmentally sensitive fabrics, has set up a state-of-the-art dyehouse in collaboration with Holmfirth Dyers, its partner for textile dyeing and finishing.

The two textile firms have together invested £2 million to set up Park Valley Dyers in Lockwood, the first such dyehouse to be built in the UK in the last two decades.

According to Camira, the new dyehouse has been set up especially for the firm's Holdsworth-branded transport fabrics.

Camera said the new plant provides flexibility of dye batches from a single 2 kg yarn cone to up to 2 tons, while maintaining consistent colour and quality.

The new dyehouse, which has a capacity to handle 50 tons of material a week, has already delivered first batch of fabrics. It has resulted in creation of five employment opportunities and more jobs are expected as production increases.

The new plant has empowered Camira to take direct control of the yarn dyeing operation and the company expects that the new plant will enable it to improve its responsiveness to customers and quicken the process from initial sampling to bulk production.

The state-of-the-art dyehouse is equipped with a laboratory with the latest technology to ensure fabrics do not lose their colour when exposed to light and heavy use.

Instead of the usual infra-red drying, the new plant uses a warm air drying process, which gives a softer finish to the fabric.

The accuracy of dye recipes is ensured by computer controlled process technology.

Among its environment-friendly features, the plant has a “100 percent dye exhaustion” to ensure discharge of clean water to the sewer after use. Besides, an energy-efficient hot water boiler has been installed, which is backed by hot water recovery for use in later dye batches.

The new plant will help Camira Fabrics to supply premium quality fabrics to use as seat covers on trains and buses for its customers such as the Paris Metro, the London Underground, First Group and Transport for London.
