YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-08-06 16:00:00 – Switzerland

The Indian market is one of the most important ring spinning markets in the world and Saurer, a leading textile industry group, has received a new plant from its developers, M/S Shah & Talati, marking the beginning of a new chapter for Saurer in India.

Dr Martin Folini, Saurer Group CEO said that with the establishment of their new facility in Vadodara, they would be in a better position to cater to their customer needs.

The project, located in Vadodara, Gujarat, spreads across 85,000m2 of land and houses world class production facilities for two premium ring spinning brands of Saurer: Zinser & Texparts. The new facility also includes a sourcing hub for the whole group and service stations for several units like Saurer Embroidery, and is built to cater to demands in the domestic, as well as international export markets.

Being close to the customer is essential for speed – the Indian location does not only allow Saurer to supply the Indian market with new speed but also to the essential South East Asian markets, the company reports.

When they announced the land purchase in November 2014 and set the target to move in and start production by end of July 2015, people looked at them in awe. Now the facility is handed over to them and the moving has started. The new project would also see the Saurer Group contribute proudly to Prime Minister Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, said Dr Folini.

Ralph Knecht, GM of Zinser Ring Spinning unit, closely associated with the project said that the Indian textile market is highly sophisticated with challenging customers. The new project in India would allow them to blend German technology with Indian experience and provide their customers with the latest generation of world class products combined with their passion for innovation and quality.

In the initial stage, the factory will manufacture the new Zinser models 71 and 72, both for conventional and compact ring spinning. With up to 1920 spindles, this will be the longest ring frame in the world. Next step would see all the variations of Zinser ring spinning machines and superior automation to be produced at the facility making Zinser the only ring spinning machine manufacturer with 4 ring spinning technologies.
