People get a chance to see whatever new products that have come into the market and manufacturers get a chance to display new kinds of yarns, which is a good thing. Last year, we had launched a new brand called ‘Ray One’, which is doing very well in the market. We have also brought in a new technology called spool spun yarn technology, which is used for manufacturing high quality superfine denier viscose filament yarn. Now, we are trying to consolidate our presence in the knitting segment. Yarnex 2016 being held in Tiruppur, the knitwear capital of the country will help us do that. The event will definitely give our business a boost.”
Mr. Ashwani Sharma, General Manager (Marketing), RSWM Ltd, Tiruppur noted: “We have been taking part at Yarnex/TexIndia for the past seven years. Over the years, we have seen the event grow bigger – the footfalls have increased, the conversion rates have increased, and the fair has grown popular. We have displayed our range of yarns here. We specialize in value added products, which is the need of the hour in the industry.”
Sharing similar views, Mr. Chanraj, Sales Manager, Amarjothi Spinning Mills (P) Ltd, Tiruppur said: “We are regular participants at Yarnex Tiruppur. We have also participated in Yarnex event in Delhi in the past. We are satisfied with the way the event is managed.

As you know, South India is the main market for textiles. 45% of spinning happens in Tamil Nadu, mainly in the Coimbatore – Tiruppur cluster. More and more people here are looking towards imported cotton. We are very happy to say that we have got around 10 to 12 new mills who want to try out our cotton. We want to come here again and again.”
Mr. S.P. Kaushik, G.M. (Marketing), Nandan Denim Ltd., Ahmedabad said: “We are the flagship company of the Chiripal Group. We have exhibited 100% cotton indigo dyed yarn in cone form, which needs no introduction in the industry. This is the first time we are participating at Yarnex and we are impressed with the way the event has been managed. We are also impressed with the number and quality of the visitors Yarnex 2016 has drawn. We will definitely be participating in the next year’s event too and we also hope to increase the scale of our participation.”
