TOBEL, Switzerland — April 1, 2015 — Switzerland-based Santex Group signed a contract with Gain Lucky (Vietnam) Ltd. at the beginning of the year. The contract includes the delivery of six Santashrink drying machines. Santashrink is the perfect solution for shrinkage, relaxation, and tensionless drying of tubular or open-width knitted fabric. Installation of the new machines is planned in batches until mid July.
Gain Lucky is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ningbo Shenzhou Group, a major producer of knitted fabric and clothes based in Ningbo, Zhejiang, China. In 2014 Santex already provided four Santashrink drying machines to Gain Lucky during the first phase of the project. All machines are manufactured by Santex (Shanghai) Textile Machinery Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Santex Group. Santex founded its subsidiary in Shanghai in 2005 in order to provide Chinese customers with high quality textile machinery and local services. The well-known manufacturer of machinery for knit fabrics finishing is committed to develop and maintain the Chinese textile market.
There have been major investments in Southeast Asia during the recent years–especially in Vietnam and Cambodia. Some Chinese textile manufacturers have set-up production plants in those countries. High quality, low maintenance costs, and on time service are the most important criteria, when it comes to investment decisions. This has been the main reason for Gain Lucky to choose machines from Santex.
