Karnataka-based Himatsingka Linens, a division of Himatsingka Seide Ltd and a leading producer of bed linen products, is installing three new Monforts units as part of an expansion that will double bed linen output and see a venture into terry towelling. Monforts is a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines based in Germany.
The three new machines are all German-built and are being installed by Monforts’ representative for India, ATE Enterprises Private Ltd.
The group is doubling its existing sheeting capacity from 23 million metres per annum to 46 million metres. The company will also be installing for the first time 211,000 spindles as part of its backward integration into spinning, and the entry into the terry towels sector will see it setting up a capacity for 25,000 tons per annum.
Expansion of sheeting capacity will enable the company to make printed products, which will enhance its fashion bedding shares in the market, and also help Himatsingka to enter into the basic bedding segments.
