Those who are looking to get into the garment manufacturing business have a number of choices available to them. Many companies have started out small and have grown their business in the meantime. However, there are a few companies that have managed to stand out from the crowd and have become the top manufacturers in their respective regions.
1 Sutlej Textiles
Founded in 1934 by Dr. Krishna Kumar Birla, Sutlej Textiles and Industries is Asia’s largest textile mill. Its roots extend back to pre-Independence India. Today, the company’s manufacturing facilities are spread across three states in India, producing an assortment of yarns, fabrics and other related items. Its flagship product, Face Mask, is a testament to the company’s dedication to quality. Its product portfolio includes drapery fabrics, home textiles and synthetic staple fiber.
The company also runs three manufacturing units in Rajasthan and Chenab. Its operations include dyeing, spinning, processing and finishing. Its products are manufactured under various brands, including American Silk Mills in the US, Nesstar in India and a host of other names. A total of 20,600 employees are employed at the company’s three mills, in addition to the ones at its various units.
The company’s Q4 EBITDA reached a healthy Rs 133 crore. The best part is that the EBITDA was up a whopping 206 per cent on the previous year. This is primarily attributed to the company’s eponymous flagship brand, Face Mask, which accounts for over one third of the company’s output. The company has also received an approval from the Competition Commission of India. The company is currently looking at setting up a green field project in Jammu & Kashmir. This project is estimated to cost Rs.914 crore, which will be financed through debt.
The company also cites a recent study by the Centre for Policy Dialogue that showed that the industry is currently seeing a slowing down in the number of woven garment exports. However, the report shows that the industry is rebounding in the early months of the current fiscal year. The good news is that there is evidence to suggest that the sector is refocusing on the alternatives. This is particularly evident in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also worth noting that the industry has recently launched a new website for its customers, aiming to make the buying process easier and more customer-centric.
The company’s top-notch quality Face Mask has been on the market since the company’s inception, but it isn’t just the company’s most impressive product. Its other, lesser known offerings include a range of multifold yarns, synthetic staple fiber and polyester fiber from PET bottles. The company has recently added an additional 120 metric tons per day of capacity for recycled polyester fiber. This is a fairly substantial increase in capacity for the company, which had a capacity of about four million pounds per day in 2008.
The company’s Q4 EBITDA is only a small percentage of its total income, which was over Rs. 817 crore in the first half of the financial year. The company’s most recent financial results for the quarter ended 30 September 2022 indicate that the company has successfully transitioned from being the country’s largest textile producer to a global leader in value-added synthetic yarn and other fabric-related products.
