PT. Kahatex has become the first company to join BIRLACRIL™ SELECT program, a new Value Chain Management concept launched by Thai Acrylic Fibre Co (TAF), Aditya Birla Group for Textile & Apparel Value Chain. The aim of program is to facilitate global sourcing of products made with TAF’s regular and specialty fibres for apparel and technical textile end-use.

BIRLACRIL™ SELECT program is aimed at bringing together a pool of manufacturers that can provide high quality yarns, fabrics and garments with TAF’s fibres in different parts of the world, to help the entire value chain ¬ knitters, buying houses, brands and retailers - in sourcing the right products for the required end-use.

Mr. Thomas Varghese, Business Head -  Textiles, Acrylic Fibre & Overseas Spinning – Aditya Birla Group further states, “Acrylic fibre industry is going through a lot of changes and our customers, value chain partners, brands and retailers are looking for a reliable set of manufacturers that can provide good quality & high performance fibre, yarns and fabrics to support their needs. After getting feedback from users of products made with acrylic fibre, it made sense to us, as a technology provider to the industry, to start an accreditation program by creating a club of our customers from where these end-users can be assured of getting a high performance product”.

To start with, BIRLACRIL™ SELECT program will be a network of yarn spinners working closely with TAF. The program will progressively broaden to include fabric manufacturers, garment makers etc.

PT. Kahatex is one of the largest integrated textile companies in Indonesia manufacturing polyester chips, polyester fibers, yarn, fabric, garments and socks in a vertical integrated set-up. Its product range spans almost the entire gamut of textile products from a variety of yarns and fabrics to products such as garments, blankets, rugs, carpets, socks, gloves, etc. Its garments, socks, and gloves divisions are 100 % export oriented. Kahatex is one of the largest consumers of acrylic fibre in South East Asia.

Mr. Song Wen Shyang, Managing Director of PT. Kahatex says, “We are associated with Aditya Birla Group for a long time and we see this program as a step towards further strengthening our relationship and becoming a strategic partner. I am confident that we will grow and bring out new and meaningful innovations together for the good of the whole industry. We are looking to add another chapter in our journey with TAF.”

“BIRLACRIL™ SELECT partner network will involve deeper technical, marketing & sales collaboration with Thai Acrylic Fibre. Our partners will have priority access to our technology, innovations, trade connections and marketing & promotion activities”, adds Mr. Varghese, clarifying the benefits of the program. (PC)
