AMANN India Begins Operations at New Production Site in Tamil Nadu

By Fibre2Fashion

AMANN India has started production and commercial operations at its new state-of-the-art production facility in Ranipet/Tamil Nadu. It is part of the Germany-based international sewing thread producer AMANN Group. For more than 15 years, AMANN India has been offering high-quality sewing and embroidery threads for the Indian shoes and leather market.

The production facility spans across 32,000 square metres. Specialising in sewing threads for various applications, the site boasts an initial production capacity of 800 tons per year. With a workforce of 200 employees, the company aims for a gender-balanced ratio of 50:50.

“22 January 2024 marks a special milestone in the establishment of the AMANN India production facility. On this day, production operations began, which was celebrated by the team who had worked hard to achieve this in the months before,” the company said on its website.

The site is the company’s first to utilise Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD), a water treatment process designed to eliminate all liquid waste from a wastewater system, enabling wastewater-free production. This technology focuses on reducing economic wastewater and producing clean, reusable water. Through ZLD, 100 per cent of the water used is purified and remains in the cycle, with only 9 per cent needing replenishment due to evaporation.

Additionally, the AMANN India production site is equipped with its own rooftop solar system, ensuring 100 per cent utilisation of solar-generated power within the factory premises. As AMANN's rooftop solar system cannot solely meet the energy demand, a hybrid model incorporating an off-site solar farm will be employed. Consequently, the entire energy demand of the AMANN India production site will be fully met by solar energy, the company added.
