Gulshan Spinning achieved higher customer satisfaction for their quality products

“Ensuring quality is not an easy task because Bangladesh does not produce cotton. 100% cotton we have to import from other countries where almost 50% comes from India. Sourcing raw material is the most vital point to ensure yarn quality and that’s why we source mainly from CIS countries.”

Salman A Rahman, Director, Gulshan Spinning Mills Ltd & BTMA

Gulshan Group is a renowned business entity in Bangladesh doing diversified business since 1995. Gulshan Spinning Mills Ltd, a concern of Gulshan Group, has set their level to the customers by maintaining the consistency of quality.

Quality is the strength

Spinning is the backward sector of garments industry. “To produce a quality garment you must need the quality yarn and that is our strength,” Salman said.

“Ensuring quality is not an easy task because Bangladesh does not produce cotton. 100% cotton we have to import from other countries where almost 50% comes from India. Sourcing raw material is the most vital point to ensure yarn quality and that’s why we source mainly from CIS countries.”

Salman A Rahman mentioned some points by which they maintain quality-

  • Raw cotton source from CIS countries
  • Ensure high micronaire value (micronaire values between 3.7 and 4.2 are optimum for cotton yarn spinning)
  • Remove dead fibers and PP manually during bale opening
  • Skilled manpower
  • Well-equipped laboratory

Difficulties in cotton sourcing

Usually, spinners have to put their order before the season and it is uncertain that what would be the raw cotton quality. On the other hand, a country like Bangladesh has no influence in the world cotton market.

“We have some fixed seller and we usually don’t purchase cotton from others. Because, long term business relation makes things easy that creates commitment and our fixed sellers understand our demand,” Salman stated.

“We always try to make a report on our own to ensure the raw cotton quality. If we find any extremely low-quality lot then we send back. This consumes significant time but we give zero tolerance about quality.”

“Lastly, I would like to say that all together we have built this industry, around 40 million people depends on this sector. So, all the stakeholders and government should nourish this sector for more growth,” Salman concluded.
