Trident Group: Pioneers in home textiles market
The group has catapulted to become the largest manufacturer of terry towels and one of the largest integrated home textile manufacturers in the world; a feat nonpareil.
The group began with a solitary unit making high-quality yarn. However, in due course, the group catapulted to become the largest manufacturer of terry towels and one of the largest integrated home textile manufacturers in the world; a feat nonpareil.
Success breeds success
In 2013, Trident started another journey from Budhni in Madhya Pradesh, the heart of India. Spread over an area of 800+ acres, the Trident Budhni plant is a convergence of modern machinery, best-in-class processes and the passion for excellence. The plant houses its home textile businesses that are vertically integrated — from cotton to yarn, and yarn to towel and sheeting. Stationed at its Budhni facility is also the world’s largest terry towel factory; spread across an area of 1 kilometre.
