Akarat Textile Industry was established in 1987. Originally,
we were located in Prapadaeng, Samutprakan. Our factory
was set up only as a weaving mill to supply greige (loomstate)
wide width fabric for our bedding customer.
At that time, there
were very few factories that can bleach and print wide
width fabric in Thailand. And those that do use very old
machines so quality is poor. Our customer had to send
our greige fabric to these factories for bleaching. After
bleaching, they had to send the bleached fabric to another
factory for printing. There were a lot of problems in
terms of quality and delivery since the fabric was not
process all in one factory.
We saw this as an
opportunity to start a factory specialized in wide width
fabric from weaving, bleaching, dyeing, printing and finishing
all under one roof. We have to move to our current site
in Samutsakorn Industrial Estate where a centralized wastewater
treatment is available.
