Gujarat may be next destination for Uster University

For the first time in India, Switzerland headquartered textile yarn quality control equipments producer – Uster Technologies recently held ‘Uster Quality University’, a top management summit in Goa, to which were invited spinners from the Guntur cluster of Andhra Pradesh. 

Gujarat may well be the next destination for the Uster University program.

28 spinners from Guntur textile cluster took part in the three-day proceedings of Uster Quality University, overseen by the senior management team of Uster from India and Switzerland.

Explaining the concept of Uster University exclusively to fibre2fashion, Mr Thomas Nasiou - Vice President (Textile Technology) at Uster explains, “The objective behind this concept is to share our experiences and share best practices followed by spinning mills from around the globe, with top management of Indian spinners, on how to manage spinning with a quality mindset achieving optimum results in profitability and quality”.

He adds, “The idea of this university cropped up in our meeting with our CEO - Dr. Geoffrey Scott and the management team, when we were trying to find ways and means to increase the education of the Chinese spinning industry, especially the awareness for quality. During our discussions, it was decided to include sessions which directly impact production and quality and try to find optimum ways to improve both.

“We first held the Uster Quality University in China and received tremendous positive feedback, which encouraged us to hold the program in India, which has the second biggest textile industry in the world.”

Giving details about the sessions, he explains, “We have split the whole program in to various functional areas. We start by discussing about management from raw cotton to blow room, carding, combing, drawing, ring spinning and finally winding.

“The program addresses optimization of productivity as well as profitability in relation to quality. This program is sort of a back to basics. We will also be discussing case studies alongside”. 

When asked about their future plans on holding more such Uster programs in India, he says, “We will hold these events in other parts of India. Through these events, we will try to help the spinners to improve the bottom-line performance of their mills, optimizing spinning through quality. The next Uster Quality University may be held in Gujarat, which is also famous for its cotton industry”.

When asked about the various new product launches in 2013, he says, “In 2013, we launched Uster Classimat 5. In Classimat 5, we have introduced new ways to classify the quality of the yarn, beyond the normal way of classifying the yarn defects only”. 

“Last week, we announced the acquisition of Jossi Systems, a producer of systems for cleaning cotton and removing contaminating material from cotton at the first stages of spinning production. This acquisition will help us complement and strengthen our position as the world leader in yarn quality management, especially in the field of contamination control. Our target for 2014 will be to integrate and streamline operations of both the companies.”
