Sintex Industries Chooses Truetzschler And A.T.E. As Partners For Their One million Spindle Dream Project

Truetzschler India and A.T.E. recently completed phase one of the prestigious Sintex Industries – Yarn Division’s project of 1 million spindles at Rajulah, Amreli, in Gujarat. The project once fully operational will produce cotton, melange and linen yarns.

The idea to set up the plant came with the announcement of the Gujarat Textile Policy and also from the changing dynamics in the Chinese textile industry at that point of time. Subsidised interest costs under the TUFS also proved to be the major impetus along with low labour cost and the power subsidy in Gujarat. Finally, since Gujarat is a major supplier of cotton, we expected a lower logistical cost for sourcing the raw material. The new plant has 320,000 spindles in the first phase which is completed. A similar number in the second phase is going on and 360,000 spindles in the last phase will be completed by 2018.

A total of 160+ Truetzschler cards were delivered with matching blow-room capacity. Of this, 54 Truetzschler cards are installed under one roof, and this is the first installation in India where such a large number of cards are operating under a single roof. All the machines are running satisfactorily. Truetzschler machinery for the next phase is also under delivery right now. A total of Rs. 5,600-5,800 crores will be invested and once completed it will be the largest textile mill to house one million spindles at a single location in India.

To mark the completion of the first phase of Sintex’ project, the A.T.E. and Truetzschler India teams met the management of Sintex Industries. A small memento was presented to Amit Patel, Group Managing Director of the Sintex Group, by G V Aras, Director of A.T.E. Enterprises Pvt. Ltd. and Joseph Thomson, Director of Truetzschler India.

B. B. Sharma, CEO and Girish Mahajan, Vice-President (Projects) of Sintex were also present during the occasion with Ashish Sharma, Vice President of Truetzschler India and Sandeep Bakshi, Regional Head, A.T.E. Enterprises Pvt. Ltd., Ahmedabad.
