Premier Fine Linens, leading producer of 100-percent fine cotton bed and table linen and part of the Premier Group, one of Indiaâ€™s oldest and largest textiles producers, to further enhance the quality and innovative potential of its production is investing in a new Monforts Monfortex Sanforiser 8000 and a Thermex E-Control. Although other divisions are long-time users of Monforts technology, this is the first Monforts installation for the Fine Linens division.
The machines are being installed at the Fine Linens mill in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. They will handle widths of 3,200 millimeters and typically be handling weights of between 125 and 250 grams per square meter (g/mÂ²), although heavier fabrics of up to 450 g/mÂ² can also be handled.
Monfortsâ€™ representative in India, ATE Enterprises Private Ltd, is installing the new units. The new installation will greatly enhance quality control of the production, which is at the very top of the fine quality segment of this market.
The company operates 375,000 spindles. Fabric production for its own in-house production and brands is 450,000 meters per month, with another 400,000 meters for contract weaving.
Premier Group is Indiaâ€™s largest importer of Egyptian cotton, and also uses the finest American cotton and superfine Indian cottons. Premier Fine Linens specializes 100 percent in products made from very fine cotton yarn, which are for export only.
Vice President for Fine Linensâ€™ production, R. Mathiyazhagan, confirmed that the division uses 100-percent cotton, organic cotton, Supima and Egyptian and Supima Tencel blend.
All of their dyeing is done in-house, using organic dyes and low-impact chemicals. They recover, process and recirculate their own wastewater, using 99 percent of their own supplies.
For them and for their customers, environmental protection alongside product quality sets their standards and they like to think this is a benchmark that few other producers can match.
Much of their production is based on producing exactly what the customer wants, to the customerâ€™s demand, and although the specifications are always naturally very exacting, their lead times can mean success or not for the customerâ€™s concept.
Monforts will also allow them to increase the innovations and product potential that they offer to their customers. They can offer better color control, and better shrinkage.
