Many of the major textile mills were first established in Amritsar. But the city has been a victim of insurgencies and terrorist activities in the 70s and 80s and this has dealt a death blow to the local industries. As a result industries moved out, slowing down the overall development.
Today, the scenario is fast changing. The local entrepreneurs are determined to bring back the city to its golden days. One such group who are in the field of manufacturing and exporting blankets, shawls, stoles, scarfs have done backward integration by setting up their own yarn dyeing unit which is Shree Balaji Yarns and Textile (SBYT).
SBYT is a greenfield facility established in 2012. Construction of the factory started in 2010 and commercial production started in August 2012. SBYT is headed by two young entrepreneurs - Mr. Manish Mehra and Mr. Hitesh Khosla, Managing Director of SBYT - who have established a worldclass manufacturing facility for yarn dyeing.
The company has a professional team headed by Mr. Mohinder Attiri who comes with more than 20 years of experience in the field of textile industry, particularly in dyeing and processing.
The promoters of SBYT have been in the textile industry for over 40 years. They have been sourcing dyed yarn from the market. Hence to cater to their captive requirement and to other customers, the group has now gone in for backward integration and established their own state-of-the-art dyed yarn plant.
The company is also catering to the dyed yarn requirement of companies in Amritsar who are into making similar products like shawls, stoles, scarfs and blankets. Apart from the Amritsar market, SBYT is also catering to customers in Ludhiana for the woolen and cotton knitwear and hosiery segment.
SBYT has established a very modern yarn dyeing facility with a capacity to process 5000 kgs of yarn per day. “We are planning to double the capacity in the next few months”, says Mr. Manish Mehra, Managing Director of SBYT.
SBYT has all the necessary infrastructure for yarn dyeing including preparatory winding machines for soft packaging and RF dryers and cone winding machines after they dyeing process. The company has established a sophisticated testing laboratory with automated color management solutions.
The heart of this manufacturing unit is the dyeing unit, for which SBYT has installed the new generation Fong’s Allwin and Labwin series of machines. The company has installed 12 machines with varying capacities starting from 3 kgs, which are used for sampling, up to 500 kgs. “In the next phase we will set up higher capacity machines of 800 and 1000 kg dyeing machines as we have increasing requirement from our customers, says Mr. Hitesh Khosla, Managing Director of SBYT.
