India-based textile and garment manufacturer Prem Durai Export (PGC Industries) recently installed
a LTE260-4s automatic cutting machine from Italy-based Bierrebi Italia, a producer of cutting
technologies. PGC’s cutter features four tension-free fabric feeders, and uses current inverter
technology and fiber optic transmission to perform at a high and consistent level of quality,
according to Bierrebi.
PGC employs approximately 8,400 people and has a turnover of more than US$85 million. The
company has grown successfully over the past three years and is targeting 75-percent growth in
Back in 1997, PGC was the first company in India to purchase cutting technology from
Bierrebi, and the company has continued to install updated Bierrebi machinery as production needs
have increased. Bierrebi credits the successful installations at PGC for helping it enter the
market in India – the company now has more than 30 lines installed in India.
