Century Rayon products get Oeko-Tex 100 certification

While the Indian textile industry is an important component of the domestic economy, the global importance of the Indian textile sector is steadily growing.

And individual companies are quite capable of achieving global success and distancing themselves from questionable working conditions. Many products of the Indian fibre and yarn manufacturer Century Rayon meet the human ecology requirements of OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

In 1954, Syt BK Birla laid the foundation for the current company in Shahad, about 55 kilometres from Mumbai, the metropolitan area and capital of the federal state Maharashtra.

In the beginning, production focused on rayon yarns for the clothing industry, but in the 1960s new applications soon became available: Textile reinforcement materials for the production of tyres for the automotive industry – so-called cord fabrics – are still used in modern tyre manufacturing.

Today, Century Rayon use state-of-the-art machinery to produce special yarns for technical sectors such as V-belts, fabrics for flexible tubing or fire-resistant fabrics. Beyond this, the company offers an extensive collection of yarns for further processing into different types of fabrics for the clothing sector and the home textiles sector.

With around 5,000 employees at two production units and many years of experience in yarn production, Century Rayon is one of the leading providers in this industry sector.

First-rate quality and a pronounced customer focus play a vital role in the economic success of the company. Shri..O R Chitlange, CEO, explains: “We have been continuously focusing on quality and sustainability since the mid 1990s – we owe that to our customers and our staff.”

The company has been certified to the requirements of the quality management system ISO 9001-9008 since 1995 and the environmental management system of ISO 14001 has been implemented since 2007.

The OHSAS 18001 standard was also introduced in 2007 to form the basis for an efficient health and safety management system. The globally accepted standard focuses on personal safety, occupational health and safety as well as health prevention for employees.
