Mafatlal Industries to benefit from new tender system

Nov '09
According to new procedures adopted by different government agencies in their tendering process, it is now mandatory for all government departments to purchase their requirements of textiles and clothing from only composite mills.

A composite textile mill has all process related activities like spinning; weaving and fabric processing under one roof which will help ensure that, strict quality control parameters are adhered to.

In previous years, middlemen or traders would quote the lowest price and get them manufactured in different powerloom factories, which led to inconsistency in the quality of fabrics that was supplied to different government departments.

To understand the new system of tendering Fibre2fashion spoke exclusively to Mr Raghunath, Director, Mafatlal Industries Ltd who said, “Yes, in recent times we are noticing that, the tenders are stamped with the only “Composite Mills” on tenders related to supply of textiles”.

He added by saying, “We are a textile composite unit, registered with all defense establishments and we also deal with all central and state government departments across India. We are one of the largest composite mills having spinning, weaving & processing facilities.”

He continued, “We have such two units at Navsari & Nadiad (Gujarat State) and we also have a composite mill certification to this effect from Office of the Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles. We are doing business with all Public Sector Companies, Armed Forces, Police Departments, State Government /Central Government departments, State Transport Corporations, Municipal Corporations, Para-Military Organisations etc”.

He concluded by saying, “Mafatlal Industries Limited is having nearly Rs 150 crores business per year only from the above departments and this business forms a large chunk of our total business in textiles, which is around Rs 700 Crores including denims”.
