Trident Group, one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of terry towel, home textile, yarn, and paper in India, has recently ventured to produce bed linen and has installed a total of five new Monforts machines on the production line. Monforts is a global leader among the manufacturers and exporters of textile machines based in Germany. Trident Group has installed five new Monforts machines for its new bed linen venture which has been commissioned in Budni, near Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh, Central India. For the production of bed linen, Trident is using two Montex 6500 stenters, two Monfortex 8000 sanforisers, and a Thermex with CDR E-control technology.

Each of the machines has been installed to handle an extra-wide width of 3200 mm. The new Monforts machines were manufactured in Germany and installed by A.T.E. Enterprises Pte. Ltd, Monforts’ representative for India, in close coordination with the strong and able Trident technical team. Chief Executive Officer of the bed linen division of Trident Group, Rajesh Singh said, “The installation was completed in a remarkably short time. This facility is purely for bed linen and came on-line in the shortest time we have ever seen. For five Monforts machines, it was a very impressive achievement. This new venture was launched in late 2014 to produce bed linen and by the end of Feb 2016 we were in production. The expansion into bed linen represents a $250 mn investment and included the installation of 500 air jet looms.”

“Our production capacity is around 43.2 mn mtr per annum of bed linen fabric, equivalent to 7.5 mn bed linen sets per annum. The bed linen unit is backed by a ring spinning unit with 190,000 spindles making the bed linen plant a vertically integrated self-reliant facility manufacturing top-quality bed linen products,” he added. JP Shukla, President bed linen dyeing and processing from Trident said, “We are committed on producing the highest quality terry towels and bed linen products, and we know that Monforts can help us in maintaining our quality standards. Along with the Monforts machines, we have installed the highest quality air jet looms, continuous dyeing and processing equipment, and fully automatic cutting, stitching, and packing machines.”
