Slivertex Engineers ties up with Teijin to make mattresses using its polyester f

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-05-04 11:00:00 – Coimbatore

The Coimbatore-based Slivertex Engineers has tied up with a Japanese based company Teijin for manufacture of eco-friendly mattresses under the Fibbo brand. The company produced about 200 mattresses a day now and this would be scaled up to 400 in three months.

According to Slivertex’s Managing Director P Muthiah the raw material (polyester fibre) is imported from the Japanese company, which is used in the making of fibre cushion.

It entered into an agreement with Teijin a year ago for raw material and technology. The raw material (high performance polyester fibre) was sourced from Japan and polyester cushion materials were made in Madurai. These were then made into mattresses here.

The production capacity of the Madurai plant is 10 tonnes a day and the Coimbatore unit makes close to 200 mattresses every day.

The company had invested Rs. 15 crore at its plants in Coimbatore and Madurai and planned to invest Rs. 10 crore each in Pune and New Delhi to set up new facilities this year.

The Pune plant would be to make acoustic material with the same raw material and the New Delhi plant to make products for the automobile sector.

Besides mattresses, the cushion material can also be used in bedding, sofas and vehicle seats.

Kenichiro Yabuki, managing director of Teijin India said that it supplied the products to the Indian market from its manufacturing facilities in other countries. It needed to see increase in volume of sale to invest here.

He added that the 98-year-old company was present in India since 2007 in automobile applications, protective apparels, photo voltaic modules for the solar energy sector and electrical and electronic product segment.
