USTERIZED® brand by Uster, Switzerland-based leading high-technology instrument manufacturer of products for quality measurement and certification for the textile industry, has now 68 USTERIZED® certified spinning mills worldwide, 21 of which have held the accreditation for 10 years or more.
During 2016, nine more spinning mills successfully passed the audit process and earned the USTERIZED® certificate. The programme requires spinners to meet stringent technical specifications and implement efficient processes for quality yarn production. The company provides support to the spinning mills throughout, with training courses and visits from specialists to support the mill, ahead of the USTERIZED® certification audit.
The interesting fact that emerged out is India now has the largest number of USTERIZED® spinners as per the count of long-term and new members at the end of 2016. Other strong USTERIZED® markets are in China, Turkey, Indonesia and Pakistan. These spinners, and others worldwide, have earned the right for their yarn to carry the USTERIZED® brand label – for instant recognition of quality consistency in trading and deliveries to fabric producers.
The USTERIZED® quality seal supports high quality and consistent quality yarn by assuring that certified spinners are capable of meeting this requirement on a continuous basis. A key aspect is the maintenance of consistent environmental conditions in the spinning mill laboratory, to ensure reliable measurement of quality values with USTER® instruments for testing fibre and yarns.
