Truetzschler India Pvt Ltd and A.T.E. recently completed phase one of the prestigious Sintex Industries Yarn Division’s project of a million spindles at Rajulah, Amreli, in Gujarat. The project once fully operational, will produce cotton, melange and linen yarns.

Sintex Group CEO B B Sharma spoke about the project. Here are the excerpts…

In the light of Sintex’s focus over many years on other business areas, could you tell us how the plan for the mammoth Sintex yarn project emerged?

The idea to set up the plant came with the announcement of the Gujarat Textile Policy and also due to changing dynamics of the Chinese textile industry. Subsidised interest cost under TUFS was also a major impetus along with low labour costs and the power subsidy in Gujarat. Since we were in touch with about 200 global buyers, proximity to Pipavav port came handy. Finally, since Gujarat is a major supplier of cotton, we expected a lower logistical cost for sourcing the raw material. The new plant has 320,000 spindles in its first phase. A similar number will be installed in the second phase, while 360,000 spindles in the last phase will be completed by 2018. A total of Rs 5,600-5,800 crore will be invested. Once completed, it will be the largest textile mill to house one million spindles at a single location in India.

Can you explain how Truetzschler machinery fit in your buying criteria?

The features offered by Truetzshler in their blow-room and cards were unmatched by any other manufacturer. Also the fact that Truetzschler has a world class manufacturing facility in the state of Gujarat itself, at Ahmedabad, lowered our transportation time and costs.

Could you please share your experience working with A.T.E. as a business partner?

We had the earlier experience of working with A.T.E. for our Bharat Vijay Mills. What we liked most about A.T.E. was its partnerships with the best suppliers in the world. We appreciate A.T.E.’s aim to strive to attain customer delight through a focused approach and value added services.

What are your future plans and how do you see the A.T.E. group in your future expansions and modernisation plans?

Right now our main focus is on completing the third and the last phase of this project and we will not hesitate to mention that A.T.E. will surely be part of our future business ventures. We are happy to note that be it spinning, processing, fabric forming, knitting or any of our other requirements, A.T.E. sales teams are always ready to offer us right products and sustainable solutions to suit our demands.
