Yarn dyeing capability leads to new investment plan
Feb '08
With an annual turnover of around US$7 million and some 750 employees, India's Fine Fit M/s head office, garment making-up and knitting facilities are all located in Tirupur, while its fabric processing division is located at the Sipcot Industrial Growth Centre in Perendurai, some 50km from Coimbatore.

With a production capacity of around 35,000 finished basic t-shirts on a daily basis, the Fine Fit Complex in Tirupur covers an area of 1161 m² and houses state-of-the-art European knitting machines, with its automated stitching backed up by the latest printing, embroidery and spreading and cutting equipment.

The range of fabrics being processed by the company includes 100% cotton, organic cotton, polyester, cellulosics and tricots with Lycra, as well as a range of blends.

Its main items for export include polos and t-shirts with a range of structures including pique, interlock, jersey etc.

The company is also very strong in yarn-dyed striped garments, which is one reason it is seeking to start its own yarn dyeing operations, for greater control of quality and lead times, according to director Mr V. Sukumar.

“There is now a very big market for dyed yarns in India,” he said. “and the ability to have our own inhouse supply will greatly improve our operational flexibility.”

With a Monforts DynAir relaxation dryer at the Perendurai plant featuring a width of 2.4 m it handles fabric from a range of European dyeing machines.

DynAir twin-belt dryers with the Montex modular construction are designed for relaxation shrinking of knitted fabrics with feed in either open/wide or tubular form. A special air guidance system with dynamic pulsating air currents allows the fabric to glide through the dryer.

Being a leading manufacturer on the global market A. Monforts Textilmaschinen produces machines and ranges for diving and finishing of woven and knitted fabrics.

Exports exceed 90%. Nearly 100 representatives are located in all textile hubs worldwide.
