As the global market for dyed yarns and fabrics becomes increasingly competitive, Singapore-based Huntsman Textile Effects is helping Queen South Textile Mills of Bangladesh reinforce its industry leadership with a renewed emphasis on environmental and economic sustainability.

Under a Memorandum of Understanding signed on May 4, 2015, Huntsman Textile Effects will collaborate with Queen South Textile Mills to ensure it is among the first to adopt the latest sustainability innovations, Huntsman said in a statement.

It will also support Queen South Textile Mills streamline its operations and optimize its processes by implementing a Productivity Improvement Program (PIP) at the company’s textile mill in Dhaka and providing technical support and staff training.

This strategic cooperation will help Queen South Textile Mills maintain its leading edge through innovation while continuing to comply with the stringent requirements of its export customers around the world.

Queen South Textile Mills has already adopted advanced Huntsman Textile Effects technologies, including the market-leading Avitera SE dyes. An award-winning flagship dye technology for exhaust application on cellulosic fibers, Avitera SE dyes meet increasingly stringent environmental standards and help textile mills improve their productivity and profitability for better economic sustainability. Now available in a broad palette color spectrum with highest light fastness, Avitera SE dyes significantly reduce water and energy consumption and carbon emissions by up to 50 per cent.

“We are honored to be an innovation partner in Queen South Textile Mills’ drive for increased sustainability,” said Chuck Hirsch, Vice President, Sales and Technical Resources of Huntsman Textile Effects. “Bangladesh is an important market for us and we are pleased to collaborate with leading and like-minded companies here, such as Queen South Textile Mills, as they equip themselves to better support brands and retailers in building a more environmentally sustainable textile supply chain.”

Jamie Wong, CEO of Queen South Textile Mills, commented, “Our cooperation with Huntsman Textile Effects recognizes the value of the innovative technologies it can offer and is part of our strategy to achieve long-term sustainability for our business. The tie-up with Huntsman will help give us a competitive edge as we differentiate Queen South in today’s dynamic business environment.”

Experts from Huntsman Textile Effects will carry out a full operational audit at the Queen South Textile Mills’ Dhaka facility and recommend ways for the mill to improve productivity and profitability. Implemented in many mills around the world, the 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 and more using existing plant. Critically, PIP has also successfully improved right-first-time performance by 95 per cent. (SH)
