Huntsman Textile Effects said it will work with Panko Vina Corporation to implement a Productivity Improvement Program (PIP) that reinforces the knitwear mill’s growth as a sustainable export business.

The Panko Vina textile mill in Binh Duong Province has already adopted new technologies such as the Avitera SE and Terasil dyes to save energy and water.

“It is now seeking to optimise and standardise its processes and work practices to gain maximum benefit from these advanced systems and further improve yield and product quality,” Huntsman said.

Technical experts from Huntsman Textile Effects will carry out a full operational audit at the Panko Vina facility and recommend ways for the mill to improve productivity and profitability.

They will also train Panko Vina’s technical team to help them further streamline operations.

According to Huntsman, PIP has proven to be capable of reducing water consumption by as much as 50 per cent and energy consumption by 30 per cent, while increasing output by 30 per cent or more.

“Critically, PIP has also successfully improved right-first-time performance by 95 per cent,” it added.

Heun Tae Kim, president, Panko Vina said, “Panko Vina is focused on providing high-quality products in compliance with the most stringent industry standards and in accordance with sustainable best practices.”

“With Huntsman Textile Effects as our innovation partner, we look forward to strengthening our position as a preferred partner of key brand retailers around the world,” he too added.

Paul Hulme, president, Huntsman Textile Effects stated, “As companies like Panko Vina focus on raising standards to maximise productivity and profit without compromising the environment, even more growth is possible.”

“Huntsman Textile Effects is pleased to support Panko Vina and help strengthen Vietnam’s capabilities in high-quality textile production,” he observed.

Huntsman holds regular seminars in Vietnam and also collaborates with the industry to help them adopt new technologies and processes that conserve resources, reduce waste and improve productivity.

Huntsman Textile Effects is currently working with Thien Nam Sunrise to develop a professional training course and help the local industry overcome a shortage of skilled wet processing personnel. (AR)
