INFRASTRUCTURE

We believe our fabrics tell the Beekalene story – the finest craftsmanship, design, research and technology to create unique collections. Our customised fabrics are born from a state-of-the-art, fully vertically-integrated manufacturing facility, equipped with the latest technology for both sampling designs and producing them.

 

We convert yarn into finished fabric at our factory itself because we always strive for a superior product. Our manufacturing plant in Mumbai is equipped with state of the art European and Japanese machines that control all aspects of production in-house. All our fabric is put through a rigorous testing procedure at our laboratory to ensure optimal quality and shade consistency before it leaves the factory.

 

Our emphasis on innovation and personal service sets us apart from the rest of our industry. Each senior designer at Beekalene works on a single market from concept to realisation with the best tools and workers at his disposal. We deliver half a million metres of finished fabric per month i.e. 6 million metres a year.

 

Our technological capabilities include:

  • Yarn Dyeing: We have the latest Fongs yarn dyeing machines, Monga Strayfield RF dryer and SMEW winding machines
  • Fabric Weaving: We have Sulzer projectiles and Vamatex rapier dobbies for weaving plains, semi-plains, stripes and checks. We also have Somet rapiers with Staubli jacquards.
  • Embroidery: In 2009 we installed two Tajima multi-head machines. Today, in 2013, we have 32 multi-head machines.
  • Fabric Processing: Comprises fully-automated jet dyeing machines, soft-flow machines, a stenter and an auto dispensing machine to ensure the best possible product.
  • Printing: we have a Le Meyer transfer-print machine - Warp Knitting: we have 8 Karl Mayer and Liba machines that can produce 350,000 metres of cloth a month
