Oct '12
Saffron Philippines Inc. (Saffron) has installed 8 sets Fong's Industries Group's TEC series within 8 months. The 4th shipment will be taken on or before end of 2012.

Saffron Philippines Inc, one of dyeing and finishing, printing and garment production top tier manufacturer in Philippines over than 18 year experience with 438 workers to serve brand name clients include Abercrombie, Ralph Lauren, Walmart, Jockey and Hanes.

“Making the Impossible Possible is our company philosophy and we are aimed to be valued as a dynamic leader in fabric dyeing, finishing, printing and garment production for our excellence, innovation, diversity and relevance as we contribute to the textile industry and to the community as well, of which we are part of, ” says Mr. Tomas de los Santos, Saffron’s Chairman.
Saffron daily capacity is 40-45 tons of dyeing and finishing, 10,000 pcs of garment production and 10,000 yards of printing. However, they are expecting to increase their daily capacity to pursue future expansion and responsible for the greener production.
“Our company is satisfied the performance of Fong’s JUMBOFLOW machine which we are using for a few years before the TEC series was launched during ITMA Barcelona on September 2011. Since the design is similar with JUMBOFLOW but Fong’s have upgraded some new features and improvements on the TEC series, we ordered the 1st shipment of JUMBOTEC2-1T (300kg), MIDITEC2-3T (750kg), and MINITEC2-2T (400kg) on November 2011 in such short promotion period.” 
“The Liquor Ratio (LR) of the TEC series is further reduced and the LR is getting closer with airflow machine. TEC series have a wide range of machine capacities which gives more flexibility in attaining higher loading efficiency. Furthermore, Fong’s has always provided us with the necessary technical support and their after sales service team provides fast and reliable assistance,” says Mr. Tomas de los Santos.
“After the 1st unit was installed, we did many trials of different kinds of fabric and the trials reported that TEC series has many advantages such as Lower liquor ratio, faster salt preparation and injection time, user friendly controller, efficient and consistent rinsing process, reduction of effluent, reduction of energy cost and easier machine operation because our operator can operate the machine at ground level without going up by using the platform. That’s why we have placed more orders of TEC series dyeing machine for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th orders in such short period,” says Mr. Mensen Chu, Saffron’s Plant Manager.
