Karnataka-based Himatsingka Linens, a division of Himatsingka Seide Ltd and a leading producer of bed linen products, is installing three new Monforts units as part of an expansion that will double bed linen output and see a venture into terry towelling. Monforts is a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines based in Germany.

The latest Monforts include a10 chamber Montex 6500 stenter, a Monfortex 8000, and a Thermex CDR with E-Control; all three units feature a fabric working width of 3200 millimetres. The three new machines are all German-built and are being installed by Monforts’ representative for India, ATE Enterprises Private Ltd.

The group is doubling its existing sheeting capacity from 23 million metres per annum to 46 million metres. The company will also be installing for the first time 211,000 spindles as part of its backward integration into spinning, and the entry into the terry towels sector will see it setting up a capacity for 25,000 tons per annum.

At the bed linen mill, the new units will join two eight chamber Montex 6500 units - one of the units featuring a Montex Thermex condensation unit with two curing chambers being positioned on top of the stenter. There is also a Monfortex 7000 model Sanforiser and a Montex Thermex CDR E-Control dyeing range, both with 3200 mm fabric working width.

Expansion of sheeting capacity will enable the company to make printed products, which will enhance its fashion bedding shares in the market, and also help Himatsingka to enter into the basic bedding segments.

Himatsingka’s portfolio of brands includes Calvin Klein Home, Barbara Barry, Bellora, Kelly Wearstler, Beekman 1802, Pimacott, Atmosphere, and Esprit. The company operates manufacturing facilities in India, and retail and distribution businesses across North America, Europe and Asia. Its bed linen unit is located at Hassan, in Karnataka, and its drapery and upholstery unit is at Bengaluru, also in Karnataka. (GK)
