AHMED­ABAD (IN­DIA) EVOLV­ING INTO GARMENTING HUB: ALLURES THE PIONEERS OF TECH­NOL­OGY SO­LU­TION PROVIDERS

Stitch World - - NEWS -

Short­en­ing of lead times have led gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers to ag­gres­sively fo­cus on cost cut­ting and also stream­line their sup­ply chains. The highly com­pet­i­tive at­mos­phere and the more strin­gent eco­log­i­cal pa­ram­e­ters make way for in­no­va­tions and changes in the present pro­cesses. Gar­ment wash­ing and fin­ish­ing is one such process that has es­sen­tially adopted the global stan­dards. Pi­o­neer in gar­ment fin­ish­ing ma­chines, laun­dry equip­ment and dry-clean­ing equip­ment, Xcel Stiro is catch­ing up with this trend to stim­u­late cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

“Till the time we don’t have our ser­vice cen­tre, we don’t sell our prod­ucts in that city. But the sce­nario has com­pletly changed af­ter the com­pany’s tie-up with IIGM which runs its own of­fice in Ahmed­abad. With this joint ven­ture, Xcel Stiro is show­ing its sturdy pres­ence in the un­tapped po­ten­tial mar­ket,” adds Deepak Chawla, Di­rec­tor, Xcel Stiro.

De­spite the emer­gence of the tex­tile in­dus­try in Ahmed­abad, the fact can­not be de­nied that the tex­tile in­dus­try must look at pro­vid­ing a one-stop ‘sus­tain­able’ so­lu­tion along the whole tex­tile value chain from pre-treat­ment, through dye­ing to fin­ish­ing. The need of the hour is to im­part an un­der­stand­ing of ‘en­vi­ron­ment im­pact min­i­miza­tion’ to the tex­tile in­dus­try own­ers.

“We have al­ways pro­moted eco-friendly pro­cesses through our prod­ucts which is our long term goal too. In this event, we have show­cased those prod­ucts which coun­ter­bal­ance the harm­ful ef­fects of the present day chem­i­cals in the tex­tile and gar­ment fin­ish­ing process,” claims Deepak as­sertively.

To reach out to the mar­ket, Xcel Stiro par­tic­i­pated at GTE Ahmed­abad and dis­played prod­ucts which cater to pri­mar­ily three in­dus­tries: Gar­ment, Pro­cess­ing, and Hos­pi­tal­ity. Perc

Dry clean­ing ma­chine, DC-100, was one of the prod­ucts that caught the at­ten­tion of the vis­i­tors. DC-100 is a rare com­bi­na­tion of in­no­va­tion and tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise. The ma­chine uses Per­chloroethy­lene (Perc), a spe­cial sol­vent car­rier, for the clean­ing process. The sol­vent has strong deter­gent qual­i­ties and it’s quite ag­gres­sive with all kinds of dirt. The ma­chine op­er­ates as a closed cy­cle with in-built dis­til­la­tion and re­cov­ery sys­tem where sol­vent and sol­vent vapours stay in­side the ma­chine, mak­ing them friendly to the user and the en­vi­ron­ment. The end re­sult is fresh look­ing gar­ments with im­pec­ca­ble fin­ish with­out any shrink­age and smell.

As aptly stated by Deepak,“The ma­chine uniquely stands out in the mar­ket as highly ad­vanced and one of its kind with op­tional wa­ter/oil­based perc re­cov­ery unit. It re­duces power con­sump­tion by up to 20%.”

XST 30 softener wash­ing ma­chine with dryer was also up on dis­play at the show. The ma­chine is made from Ital­ian tech­nol­ogy. The gar­ments in this ma­chine are soft­ened and dried
