State of the Art Processing of Hosiery

A seminar entitled "State of the art processing of hosiery" was organized by the Chemical Division of Sandoz Pakistan Limited in Karachi recently. The seminar was largely attended by hosiery and knitwear manufacturers and their technical staff and dealt with such important subjects as pre-treatment of cotton hosiery, criteria for dyestuff selection, shrinkage control etc. Those who presented solutions to some of these problems in their presentation included Mr. Lookman Poonawalla, Technical Director, Mr. Mujtaba Rahim, Product Range Manager and Ms. Moazzama Khatoon, Product Manager Dyestuffs.

By the use of slides and charts produced after careful research these speakers highlighted the basic problems of the industry and ways and means to overcome those problems. Intense questioning by participants added to the knowledge level of the programme and its practical use in the industry. A scientific method of solution to these problems was adopted and each major problem was braken down into its component parts to clearly identify the areas that could be improved. The method and resultant solutions were greatly appreciated by all participants.

Mr. Farhat A. Mirza, head of Chemical Division, Sandoz Pakistan in his closing address expressed the confidence that Pakistan's Hosiery and Knitwear Industry will soon surpass the industries of such developed nations as Italy. He said it is heartening that Pakistan's value added hosiery goods are now being supplied to the major fashion houses of the world and because of their high quality and competitive prices will make further progress in the future. He assured the industry that Sandoz is committed to supply the vital technical and other back-up services that can help the industry further improve the quality of its merchandise. He pointed out that Sandoz has four full fledged scientific centres providing state of the art technical services such as Colour Match Prediction Computer System, selection of right chemicals for various stages of production etc., at Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad and Jamshoro where plans for further investment are also under active consideration. He said that Sandoz is a multinational with a national outlook which puts great emphasis on local production and transfer of technology. He gave the example of local production of Reactive dyes which he said was a landmark in the production of dyestuff industry in Pakistan. He announced further investment in production facilities in Pakistan and said that Sandoz will ride shoulder to shoulder with the industry in its march towards the production of value added goods and boosting of their exports. He invited the participants to take full advantage of facilities being provided by Sandoz and declared that every Sandoz Chemical Division employee was ready to help and assist the industry. On request from participants it was also decided that Sandoz will help them gather information about 'Fashion Shades' demands in various seasons in Western countries which will help the industry plan well in advance to meet new trends.

Mr. M.A. Rathor, Director Marketing welcomed the guests while Mr. Werner S. Zerr, Managing Director of the Company also presided over the seminar for a session.
