Over the last few decades, it has developed into one of the largest textile companies in Argentina by continual investment in spinning, knitting and finishing.
The family-run enterprise is specializes in the manufacture of soft knitting yarns for the domestic market. The good cooperation with Rieter is an important component for its success.
Algodonera del Valle is defying the political and economic turbulences which the eighth largest country in the world is currently experiencing and is modernizing its spinning preparation activities with cutting edge Rieter C 70 cards.
Yarn Production with Rieter Machines in the North
The modern spinning installation consists of a worsted spinning mill with G 33 ring spinning machines as well as a rotor spinning mill with fully automated R 40 and R 60 rotor spinning machines.
It is located in Catamarca, a town at the foot of the towering Andes mountain range. There, super-soft cotton, viscose and polyester yarn blends for the company’s own circular knitting facility are produced on Rieter machines.
Knitting and Finishing in the South
The yarn produced in the North is subsequently sent on a 2 000 km long journey to Patagonia. In the knitting and finishing plant located there, downstream processing through to the textile fabric takes place. The main sales outlet is the agglomeration of Buenos Aires, a region in which more than one third of the approximately 40 million strong population of Argentina is resident.
Rieter - an important Component for Success
Some months‘ ago, a Rieter symposium on the topics of the C 70 card and the R 60 rotor spinning machine was held in Catamarca. Luis Tendlarz, owner of Algodonera del Valle, also attended: “We have been cooperating with Rieter very successfully for more than 30 years and we are entirely satisfied with the service and technology support provided.
"Our spinning mill consists almost exclusively of Rieter machines which produce the required soft knitting yarns that we require for our end products. The new C 70 cards have exceeded our expectations in terms of productivity and quality.”
