Sebahattin picks Monforts Montex 6500 to expand capacity

Vicenta Home is planning to expand its range of home textiles following the installation of a new Montex 6500 stenter. Sebahattin Akyildiz Tekstil, one of Turkey’s leading producers of home textiles, has installed a Monforts Montex 6500 stenter at its production plant in Bursa to expand the capacity for its Vicenta Home brand.
 
Prior to the new installation, Sebahattin had been relying on a stenter from a competing manufacturer. “The Monforts stenter will more than double our production capacity,” says production coordinator Yasar Oztürk. 
 
The Montex 6500 is the first time that Sebahattin has used Monforts technology and was delivered by Elitez Tekstil, Monforts’ representative for Turkey. Sebahattin Akyildiz is located at Bursa, in North Western Anatolia, a city that is renowned for its textile production.
 
The company had been founded in 1991 as a subcontractor for other producers, and finding success in that sector had started its own production line in 1996. In 2010 Sebahattin began a programme of modernisation, expanding its plant and investing in new equipment. The Montex 6500 was installed towards the end of 2013.
 
“We have been very much aware of the reputation Monforts has for quality and reliability,” says Mr Oztürk. “Vicenta brand has developed quickly since we launched it, and the range of products and designs is continually expanding.
 
“Much of our production is based on collections that are renewed each season, and consequently is very time sensitive.”
 
Vicenta is produced for the Turkish domestic market and sold through retail outlets throughout the country as one of the best-known brands of home textiles on the market. The knitted product range includes curtains, drapery, tablecloths and bedding, and features embroidery and lace elements.
 
Mr Oztürk says that the Montex will offer an individual adaptation to all the finishing effects that Vicenta requires for woven and knitted fabrics, and for polyesters, along with special solutions for pigment dyeing processes.
 
“We will now be able to create a greater range of patterns and designs, and experiment with new fabric combinations,” he says. “As we now have such a large production capacity, we have the flexibility to include short production runs to test out new fashions and styles.”
 
Vicenta’s production will be in the range of 120-150 tonnes per month. The Montex 6500 can handle all types of natural and man-made fibres in woven, knitted and warp knitted form, applying dehydration, drying, curing and heat-setting finishes.
