Pakistan's Nishat Mills installs new Thermex 5500 machine

Pakistan’s Nishat Mills is currently installing a new Thermex 5500 continuous dyeing system along with an Econtrol unit at its fabric plant in Lahore; ordered through the local representative Al Ameen Trading.  

The installation will put the company on course to finish some 4.5 million m of fabric monthly. This will allow it to service important new contracts such as supplying the camouflage gear for the Pakistan Army.

The company’s fabric dyeing plant in Lahore is already equipped with Monforts stentering, sanforizing and other equipment, which will be complemented by the new Thermex and Econtrol systems.

“Our decision to acquire the Thermex system was not only in order to increase production, but also to enhance quality and reproducibility,” says Managing Director Ahmed Jahangir. “We have full confidence in Monforts and the benefit of future quality dyeing. Even before we buy Monforts machinery we are confident about the quality.”

Current finishing output at the plant is 3.5 million m and the target is to reach up to 4.5 million.

“We have also bought the Econtrol system which will help us to reduce the cost of production by reducing water consumption and controlling pollution as well,” said Technical Director Hafeez- ur- Rehman Siddique.

     With two spinning units and an existing Monforts yarn dyeing operation in Faisalabad, a weaving unit in Sheikhupura and weaving, fabric dyeing and finishing, stitching and garment making-up operations in Lahore, Nishat has grown over the years to become one of the biggest vertically-integrated textile operations in the country.

In total, it has some 198,120 spindles and 655 air jet looms, while its two separate stitching units are dedicated to home textiles and garments respectively.

The company is now achieving export sales of over US$400 million a year.  The fabric processing plant has the capacity to process over 10 million m of fabric monthly and has been purpose designed to handle heavy weight fabrics such as twills, canvas and poplins, in addition to stretch fabrics in all high density weaves.

Around 70% of this output is in narrow width. The Nishat apparel division is equipped with a total of 1,627 modern sewing machines and completes around 7.2 million garments annually.

The success of Nishat Linen – the company’s textile and home fashion retail chain – has been achieved as a result of the close is attention it pays to quality, design and affordability. 

Nishat’s operations are also equipped with extremely efficient, captive co-generation, power plants to meet in-house energy requirements at all of its spinning, weaving, processing, stitching and apparel units.

It has been a satisfied Monforts customer since starting in house dyeing operations in 1989; following its formation in 1951.
