Sarla Performance Fibers - First Indian Company to manufacture Nylon 66 High Tenacity Yarn Highly Technical value added product currently manufactured only by few companies world wide now being produced in India
Mumbai, 10th July 2013: Download This PDF

Sarla Performance Fibers, a 100% EOU engaged in the manufacturing of high value added nylon and polyester yarn and threads and enjoying strong customer relationships with renowned brands across the Americas, Europe and Asia, has begun manufacture of Nylon 66 high tenacity yarn.

Nylon 66 high tenacity and lower shrinkage yarn product is a niche and specialized offering. High end users include parachutes, car air bags, specialized sewing applications in automotive, shoes, leather, Industrial filters, hoses etc.

Commenting on the successful completion and inauguration, Mr. Krishna Jhunjhunwala, Managing Director of Sarla Performance Fibers said, “We are delighted to announce that after a significant amount of time, effort and investment, Sarla has now begun the manufacture of Nylon 66 joining the elite league of few companies having similar offerings. This high tenacity and lower shrinkage product has strong demand for premium applications the world over.”

The transaction is being funded via a combination of $ 10 million debt while the remainder is from internal accruals. Expansion or setting up of new textile plants targeting the apparel industry in the US is becoming more attractive as a result of NAFTA & CAFTA agreements which make imports into the US extremely uncompetitive.

Sarla Performance Fibers investing $ 13.8 million to set up facility in USA
Unit to create 100 new jobs in Colleton County, South Carolina
Mumbai, 26th December 2012:

Sarla Performance Fibers, a 100% EOU engaged in the manufacturing of yarn and threads and enjoying strong customer relationships with renowned brands across the Americas, Europe and Asia, has announced that it will locate its new manufacturing operations in Colleton County, South Carolina, USA.

The Company, which is based in Mumbai, India and has manufacturing facilities in Silvassa and Vapi, will establish a new yarn and thread manufacturing facility in Colleton County under the name Sarlaflex, Inc (a Wholly Owned Subsidiary) located at Industrial Park in Walterboro. The facility will serve customers in the apparel and upholstery markets. The new plant is expected to commence operations in the first quarter of FY13-14.

Sarla is investing $ 13.8 million into the business which is expected to create 100 new jobs in Colleton. The plant will import polyester chip and produce POY & DTY that is NAFTA/CAFTA compliant.

The transaction is being funded via a combination of $ 10 million debt while the remainder is from internal accruals. Expansion or setting up of new textile plants targeting the apparel industry in the US is becoming more attractive as a result of NAFTA & CAFTA agreements which make imports into the US extremely uncompetitive.

Additionally, Sarla has a very strong customer base enjoying valued relationships with renowned brands all across North and Central America and this facility will give the Company an even better customer reach and understanding of their requirements which in turn would strengthen and deepen its associations with customers.

Commenting on the announcement Gov. of South Carolina, Nikki Haley said, “We are thrilled that Sarla Performance Fibers has chosen South Carolina for its new manufacturing facility. The announcement is another indication that companies from across the globe are seeing the benefits of doing business in our state. It’s also exciting to see Sarla Performance Fibers invest $13.8 million and create 100 new jobs in one of our state’s rural areas.”

Commenting on the announcement, Bobby Downs, Executive Vice President of Sarla Performance Fibers and President of newly formed subsidiary, Sarlaflex said, “We are pleased to establish our U.S. presence here in South Carolina. Colleton County offers us an excellent business environment, skilled workforce talent, exceptional market access and close proximity to the Port of Charleston. We appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials in bringing this project to fruition”

Mr. Krishna Jhunjhunwala, Managing Director of Sarla Performance Fibers said, “We are delighted to announce that Sarla will now be setting up a manufacturing unit in South Carolina for the manufacture of POY & DTY. This initiative which is the first of its kind by an Indian textile company will enable us to better understand and relate to the needs of our customers and as a result expand and deepen relationships. By setting up of this facility alone, we will be creating about 100 new jobs and are very excited to contribute to the economic development of South Carolina.”

CLOSE
November 10, 2010
Sarla Performance Fibers (SPFL) reported significant improvement in Consolidated H1 EPS of Rs.17.86 on the back of 20% increase in sales. Most of the sales increase was driven by export of value added high tenacity nylon and polyester yarns. SPFL –Standalone sales (excluding trading sales) volume rose by 25% and average selling price by 3% during the first half of the financial year. Savitex, a joint venture company of SPFL in Central America also supported this growth by increasing its revenue by 16%.

Commenting on this H1 performance, SPFL’s MD Mr. Krishna Jhunjhunwala said “We have been working hard to achieve a strong growth. Our growth in Q2 is especially noteworthy because the RM cost pressure was quite sudden and sharp. We have managed to pass on some of the material cost increases and expect to pass on further going forward. Had it not been for this sharp spike in RM cost, our earnings would have surged further. SPFL is benefiting from its recent presence in Turkey, Portugal and direct sales to large customers in the US”. He also mentioned that “demand in Europe and US market continues to remain under pressure but that has increased scope of low cost outsourcing and SPFL is well positioned to benefit from the same. Current situation in Europe and US also presents the company with the opportunity to carry out strategic buyouts and partnerships to increase its sales further in these markets and reach large customers directly.”

SPFL has cash (including cash equivalents) of Rs. 88mn and working capital debt of Rs 279mn at the end of H1. Company’s book value stood at Rs 118 per share at the end of H1, an increase of 8% over FY10. SPFL continued to monitor foreign exchange situation and does not foresee any major threats on this front due to its natural hedge of imported raw material.

Last year, SPFL invested in wind power capacity of 1.250 MW by spending Rs. 63mn. This year, depending upon the cash surplus and attractiveness of the returns it will consider investing fresh funds in wind power. In core business, the CAPEX needs are limited and are unlikely to exceed Rs 30mn (excluding Building CWIP) this year.
