Ludhiana (India)-based apparel exporters Kay Jain Processors, part of BG Group, which is solely committed to quality services for its consumers, is now venturing into the open-width knit fabric segment which is gaining huge popularity in Ludhiana. BG Group is into knitted fabrics, value-added apparels (menswear) and home furnishing (bed linens).
The company has almost completed the process to install open width compactor and six chamber stenter for knitting, dyeing and finishing process with an investment of US $ 1 million. The new setup will be fully operational in the next few months. Namit Jain, Partner of the company told Apparel Resources, “We already have a setup for the finishing of tubular fabric, now our focus is also on open width fabric as its demand is growing multifold. We have knitting and complete processing of the same. I feel that this is the best time to invest for future as lean period is the best time to expend further.”
Currently, the company has production capacity of 5,000 kilograms per day (cotton and polyester cotton fabric) and it will be 8,000 kilograms per day after the expansion. The organization consumes 50 per cent of the total production of fabrics. Around 60 per cent of its garment production is for overseas market like US, South Africa, Germany and Middle East nations such as Kuwait and Dubai. Most of its buyers are wholesalers and importers.
“If things work according to our planning, I am targeting our business to be double in the next two to three years,” concluded Namit.
