Sodaltech’s Paper Conversion Machinery Has 80% Market Share
Sodaltech which manufactures automatic paper conversion machinery for the production of eco-friendly textile paper cones, paper tubes and cores has a massive 80 percent market share in India.
The company’s high-performance paper conversion machinery is used for production of textile paper cones and also textile paper tubes such as DTY tubes and POY tubes.
Their machinery also produces paper cores for paper mill and packaging industries and also edge protectors for protective packaging.
Coimbatore based Sodaltech serves more than 900 customers worldwide, and has achieved leadership and reputation in the industry, by virtue of its customer-centric approach.
Sodaltech was established in 1970, by the late KU Sodalamuthu and has its humble origins in a small workshop which manufactured paper conversion machinery, but currently exports to more than 70 countries worldwide.
The company also supplies pulp moulding machinery which is used to recycle waste paper into value-added products like egg trays, fruit trays and medical disposables like kidney trays and industrial packing buffers.
“Our company prioritises and values customer relationships by offering timely and reliable service to the customers,” KS Balamurugan, Managing Director at Sodaltech told Textile Insights.
“Our machines have a standardised design with robust engineering construction for exceptional reliability and longer life and all machines have easy user interface systems and remote servicing facilities,” he explained.
“Moreover, Sodaltech ensures high-quality standards every time by sourcing components from international brands,” Balamurugan added.
Sodaltech has its own R&D division staffed with well-experienced engineers, while constant research activities enable the company to launch upgraded models at regular intervals.
The company also supplies customised models to meet the demanding requirements of its customers.
Sodaltech has recently launched a brand new heavy duty Spiral Paper Tube Winding machine to produce high-strength textile tubes for the DTY and POY spinning industry, which offers reliable performance even in high-speed spinning machines.
“We are currently planning an expansion of the production facility by adding another assembly area to meet the ever-increasing market demand and to reduce the delivery lead times.” Balamurugan shared.
Additional capex investment has been planned in new Machining Centres, Laser Cutting Machines etc.
Balamurugan expects that the Indian textile industry is poised for rapid growth in the coming years, keeping in line with the increase in demand from within the country and overseas.
“This creates opportunities for Indian entrepreneurs to set up new ventures or expand their businesses in manufacturing high-quality yarn carriers like paper cones and textile spinning tubes to cater to the growing demand,” he stated.
