Nahar to increase fabric production with Monforts units
Nov '16
Nahar Industrial Enterprises (NIEL), a vertically integrated textile manufacturer with operations ranging from spinning through to weaving and processing, has announced that two new units of Monforts, a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines, have been installed to increase the production of Nahar fabrics.

Nahar fabrics No 2 division will increase its fabric output by one-third following the installation of the two new Monforts units. Fabrics No 2 division of Nahar Industrial Enterprises will be able to increase its fabrics output from 1.5 million metres per month to 2.2 million metres with the installation of a Monforts Montex stenter and a Thermex continuous dyeing range.

ATE Enterprises, the Monforts representative for India, installed the two machines during the latter half of 2016.

SS Basu, president of Nahar Fabrics said “The division has two process units, the first established in 1999 and the second becoming operational in 2007. Fabrics No 1 unit is producing 2.5 million metres per month. We have not been able to run at our full capacity before, as we did not have the dyeing capacity. Installing the Thermex dyeing range and the Montex stenter will enable us to reach our full capacity of 2.2 million metres within the next 12 months.”

Nahar Fabrics uses exclusively European technology, with equipment from Germany, Italy and Switzerland, and uses dyes and chemicals from Europe. The company has Thermex, Montex, and Monfortex units installed earlier in both of its fabrics divisions. (GK)
