ICC Ltd, a leading Indian company engaged in manufacturing card clothing products and card room accessories for the textile spinning industry, has consolidated its entire production at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Nalagarh, Himachal Pradesh. The company has shifted all card clothing production from its Pune plant to the Nalagarh facility.

The Himachal Pradesh plant currently specialises in addressing the card clothing requirement of the latest generation of carding machines. With the strategic move of closing down the Pune facility, ICC will now be focusing production from that plant and ensure that this single plant caters to the whole range of ICC’s card clothing market.

“The move is strategic, since the Pune plant is 63 years old and was primarily engaged in manufacturing card clothing catering to the low speed and low throughput carding machines segment, while the market is now gradually shifting towards high speed and high throughput carding machines,” Vinod Vazhapulli, CEO at ICC, said in a press release.

“Being a pioneer in the industry, ICC foresaw this shift in market behaviour nine years back, when we started our facility in Himachal Pradesh, where we have installed the most advanced machines which cater to precision manufacturing and highly evolved production technologies,” he added.

“This move to consolidate production under one roof will also enable ICC to improve on time and in full delivery parameters, thereby adding value for our esteemed customers, with better delivery lead times. However, our corporate functions will still operate from the Pune office and we will try to better customer delight, in terms of service and quality,” Vazhapulli informed.

ICC is also in the process of further automating the Himachal plant with more advanced technologies. Additionally, some of the machinery from the Pune plant will be moved to Himachal Pradesh, as a lot of innovation in flexible card clothing products was done in the Pune plant, before it was closed through an amicable settlement with workers.

In the next six months, the company is planning to come up with an array of products targeting high speed carding machines with improved life and surface technology and also, productivity enhancers in the carding equipment and accessories segments. (RKS)
