Perfect Sourcing - - Inside -

GTE’S first edi­tion in Ahmed­abad re­cently con­cluded on a pos­i­tive note. The in­dus­try is reel­ing un­der pres­sure post GST as trans­ac­tions have been af­fected, how­ever, see­ing the traf­fic of buy­ers at the ex­hi­bi­tion one thing can be said that the spirit of ap­parel in­dus­try of In­dia is re­ally amaz­ing. De­spite be­ing sur­rounded by so many ob­sta­cles in the trade at the mo­ment mainly be­cause a lot of seg­ments in tex­tile and ap­parel in­dus­try are still un­or­gan­ised and fall un­der small and medium scale, the in­ter­est and cu­rios­ity to look for lat­est tech­nol­ogy is highly ev­i­dent.

Ahmed­abad, which has al­ways been a tex­tile ma­jor hub with many big mills like Arvind, Chirpal, Ashima and sev­eral oth­ers hav­ing their of­fices there, is now mov­ing to a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. Most of the com­pa­nies are ver­ti­cally in­te­grated and are now get­ting into large scale man­u­fac­tur­ing of gar­ments. While ear­lier Ahmed­abad was mainly known for pro­duc­ing for the lo­cal mar­ket, it is now ex­pand­ing its wings to the ex­port mar­ket also. This opens huge op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­pa­nies to of­fer

tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments and this is the op­por­tune time to step in.

The first day of the ex­hi­bi­tion be­gan with in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony in the pres­ence of ravi pod­dar, pres­i­dent, Gear (Gar­ment ex­porters as­so­ci­a­tion of ra­jasthan) and arpit Shah, Vp, GGMA (Gu­jarat Gar­ment Man­u­fac­tur­ers as­so­ci­a­tion). While the first and sec­ond days saw an av­er­age turnaround and traf­fic of vis­i­tors, the third day turned out to be great as, brav­ing heavy rains, the vis­i­ta­tion was very high. The vis­i­tors were not only from Ahmed­abad but also from nearby places.

Most of the ex­hibitors who in­ter­acted with Team Per­fect Sourc­ing stated that Ahmed­abad is a grow­ing mar­ket and def­i­nitely price sen­si­tive and ne­go­ti­a­tions are made till the last penny, how­ever, the in­ter­est in ma­chines is gen­uine and the buy­ing power is also good. An­other im­por­tant ob­ser­va­tion about this hub is that ‘law of land’ has a strong in­flu­ence, one buys and oth­ers fol­low, which can prove to be ad­van­ta­geous to many tech­nol­ogy sup­pli­ers.

Sew­ing to fin­ish­ing, CAD/CAM, em­broi­dery, test­ing, wash­ing, dig­i­tal print­ing and other forms of tech­nol­ogy were seen at the ex­hi­bi­tion. Most of the ex­hibitors re­ported a good re­sponse and were sat­is­fied with ser­vices and ar­range­ments made at the fair.

“Ahmed­abad is def­i­nitely an emerg­ing mar­ket in gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing; peo­ple have seen our machin­ery and have liked it. We are get­ting good re­sponse from the ex­hi­bi­tion,” said

Man­preet Singh walia from INL in­ter­na­tional. He also men­tioned that post GST, “busi­ness has not changed and In­dia is a grow­ing mar­ket and we are look­ing for­ward to a good busi­ness year ahead.”

“Our ma­chine is a ne­ces­sity for all print­ers, re­gard­less of make or tech­nique, as a heat dif­fuser is a must to trans­fer the print from pa­per to fab­ric, said

Vishwa pratap Singh, pro­pri­etor, Green tech,

Noida. The com­pany mainly caters to ex­porters and man­u­fac­tures in Noida.

“Ahmed­abad has been a very im­por­tant mar­ket for us as we have set up many labs here and in the fu­ture also we ex­pect the busi­ness to grow from this tex­tile hub,” said Man­jit Singh Saini, MD, para­mount in­stru­ments.

“We have seen a good re­sponse at the ex­hi­bi­tion and there is def­i­nitely a lot of po­ten­tial for growth; even though it is a price sen­si­tive mar­ket there is gen­uine in­ter­est to buy ma­chines,” said Vi­raf turel, MD, turel Group.

Tukat­ech also re­ported a good re­sponse. Umesh Gaur, pres­i­dent, tukat­ech in­dia said, “It has been an ex­cel­lent plat­form and on the first day it­self, we have booked an or­der for our spread­ing ma­chine.”

Over­all, the show was rated to be good and now every­one is wait­ing for the next edi­tion.
