Team Textile Focus Recently talked with Mr. Subael. He has demonstrated their specialties, Challenges and future Plan-
Specialties: Penta Group has expertise in padding jacket, fleece jacket, denim jacket and all kinds of woven bottoms item. Recently they have started some beachwear collection production as well.
Challenges: As we import all our raw materials, so the main challenge for us is to meet the lead time. Time become an issue as we have port congestion, a lack of road infrastructures. Customs takes huge time for clearing goods like viscose, as they go through testing process. Our Competitors claim to deliver goods within 30-60 days whereas we take 90 days just because of these issues. We need immediate support from Govt. to free the port making it easy for us to achieve our target in due time.
Price is another challenge. Most of the time, we compete with factories in terms of price. Buyers also create some problems just before opening L/C.
Future Plan: We are now focusing on adding value to our jacket product and also focus on beachwear collections. My plan is to keep the factory small but ensure a high tech facility. I believe in Practicing sustainability not just by certification, so we are focusing on waste minimization and energy savings
