Milestone Achieved: Opening of Our New Sustainable, State-of-the Art Production Site in Ranipet/India

Company Announcement

We have achieved a major milestone with the official opening of our first production plant in Ranipet/India on 18th of April 2024. It is our most sustainable production site equipped with state-of-the-art technology to protect the environment. In Ranipet, we will produce sewing and embroidery threads of the highest quality for the leather and apparel industry. AMANN has been represented in India since 2007 with sales offices in Chennai, Bangalore and Gurgaon. 

Peter Morgalla, Member of the AMANN Board of Management and Chairman of AMANN India:

“We are very proud to put this plant into operation today. We have closed the gap and are now able to offer our customers a comprehensive network of sales offices, delivery options and short lead times throughout Asia. Moreover, we will also provide Technical Advisory Services for our customers to exploit the full potential of our products.” 

 Key figures about the new plant:
  • Location: Ranipet/Vellore in Tamil Nadu within the “leather belt”

  • Product scope: high quality sewing and embroidery threads for leather and apparel industry

  • Production site space: 32,000 square meters

  • Employees: 200

Sustainability profile of the new plant

The investment into our new production site reflects on our serious commitment towards the environment:

  • By using Zero Liquid Discharge (ZDL), all extracted water remains in a closed cycle system. Only 9% of fresh water has to be replenished due to evaporation.

  • Energy demand is mostly covered by a comprehensive photovoltaic system, additional demand is supplied by a nearby wind and solar park. 

  • The boiler for steam production – important for the dyeing process of the threads - operates with biomass. 

Going the extra mile

To us, profit and good business conduct do not exclude each other. In our new production plant we have implemented:

  • Appropriate working conditions - audited and certified according to Indian Regulations and German Production Standards, annually reviewed

  • Gender Equality

  • AMANN Kindergarten / Creche

  • Primary Healthcare

We will provide our customers excellent Technical Advisory Services including in-house training, material testing and analyses. Besides our high-quality product portfolio, we also develop special threads together with our customers to fulfil their individual needs.

Sanjeev Grewal, Regional Business Director South West Asia and Middle East and Managing Director AMANN India, emphasises: “Success is always the result of a trustful collaboration. Our global brands and Indian customers are the key to our success. We are very grateful for our long-term business relationships which form the foundation for our today’s role in the Indian sewing thread industry as quality and innovation leader.” 

We are happy that we can now serve our customers in India from India!
