Voltas, SHIMA SEIKI join hands to expand footprint across textile industry
Voltas Limited and Shima Seiki (Shima) have entered into a distribution agreement for sales and marketing of Shimaâ€™s products in India.
The knitwear industry in India is expanding at a rapid speed. There is an ever increasing demand for knitted apparels. Not only major brands, but numerous designers have also incorporated knits into their clothing lines. The application of knitted products is also increasing and going beyond garments to home textiles, upholstery, shoe uppers, etc.
The co-operation will focus on leveraging Shimaâ€™s ability to provide leading edge products and the long standing expertise in â€˜computerised flat knitting machinesâ€™, â€˜WHOLEGARMENT Machines and Total Fashion Systemsâ€™ while building on Voltasâ€™s established sales and marketing network across the country.
Commenting on the association, Mitsuhiro Shima, President of
Shima, said, â€œWe are happy to be associated with Voltas. This association adds the required market reach to our established portfolio of products and thus expands the companyâ€™s position as a market and technology leader. We are confident that this association for sales and marketing would bring a win-win situation for the two companies and our customers too.â€
