The Premier Mills Group is a long established and well-known manufacturer and exporter of fine combed cotton yarn, producing over 18 million kg of fine combed cotton yarn every year. One of the units of the Group is Coimbatore Polytex Pvt. Ltd. They export to over 40 countries across the world, including Australia, Brazil, Finland, Germany, etc. Recently the Group purchased a new automatic bale opener BO-P from Truetzschler for Coimbatore Polytex.
According to Rohit Rajendran, Executive Director of the Premier Group, “The BO Portal is the safest automatic bale opener introduced so far in the textile industry. It can be commissioned very quickly, and the maintenance needs are minimal. BO-P is showing good performance. It is still early days as it is commissioned recently, but the report from the technicians is very good.”
Coimbatore Polytex has a long standing relationship with Truetzschler – the plant started operations with DK760 cards and has continued to buy Truetzschler cards with the TC15 being installed recently. “Truetzschler is very responsive to customers’ needs and keeps introducing innovations. Moreover, A.T.E. has the best principals in the textile industry, and the sales and service is handled with a lot of maturity. When A.T.E. is behind a principal, we are confident of working with that principal,” said Rajendran.
Coimbatore Polytex started manufacturing 100% cotton yarn in 1991. It was the first 100% EOU spinning mill in South India, and was the first to employ women apprentice workers. The mill has 42,000 spindles manufacturing knitting yarn in the count range Ne30-Ne40, and the production is 16 tons per day.
