Candour Techtex Ltd and Amba Projex UK Shaping the Textile Industry


In an ever-evolving technological landscape, textile producers are constantly seeking avenues to innovate and stay ahead of the curve.Among them, Candour Techtex Ltd (formerly known as Chandini Textiles and Engineering Ind Ltd) has emerged as a beacon of innovation, with a rich legacy in woven pile velvet weaving. Moreover, the company’s recent collaboration with Amba Projex UK and Saniti Exports marks a significant milestone in its journey towards technical excellence and market leadership.

Founded in 1947, Candour Techtex Ltd began its journey with a woven pile velvet weaving mill in Ankleshwar, Gujarat. Over the years, the company’s commitment to quality and innovation propelled its growth, leading to the establishment of a new plant in Malegaon, Dist Nashik, in 2023.

The Malegaon facility, spanning 75,000 square feet, represents a strategic expansion for Candour Techtex Ltd, positioning it as a key player in the coating and lamination segment. In collaboration with Amba Projex UK, a renowned provider of machinery, technology, and expertise for technical textiles and composites, Candour Techtex Ltd embarked on a journey to revolutionize the industry.

The collaboration between Candour Techtex Ltd and Amba Projex UK represents a fusion of local industry knowledge and international expertise, aimed at driving innovation, efficiency, and sustainability in textile manufacturing. The partnership has enabled Candour Techtex Ltd to enhance its capabilities in coating and lamination, offering a wide range of products tailored to meet the evolving needs of customers across various industries.

At the heart of the collaboration lies Amba Projex’s state-of-the-art technology, imported from the UK, which empowers Candour Techtex Ltd to achieve superior performance and product quality. The new coating and lamination plant in Malegaon is equipped with cutting-edge machinery capable of handling various fabric types and substrates, including polyester, cotton, and their blends.

These cover four distinct categories: coated fabrics which offer spill and stain resistance, like Indoor/Outdoor, designed for durability in various environments; Home Wash curtain and roller blind fabrics for ease of maintenance with machine washability, blackouts, and FR fabrics. FR is carried out with both Halogen and Halogen-free compounds. Candour is producing the highest quality 3-pass blackout curtains and roller blinds, which are said to offer the softest weaves, textures, and patterns. They also offer 2 pass coating, which is cheaper and has features of absorbing better light, temperature, and sound. For the very economical consumption, they carry out their Single-pass coating.

For Candour Techtex Ltd, innovation goes beyond product development; it encompasses a commitment to sustainability and customer satisfaction. They measure the opacity percentage of their blackout curtains and roller blind fabrics to the AATCC 203 standard, providing effective room darkening and energy efficiency without compromising on aesthetics. Moreover, they offer special coatings like anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-stain, and water repellent, catering to diverse customer needs.

Despite challenges posed by geopolitical tensions impacting raw material shipments, Candour Techtex Ltd remains resilient with strategic stock management and plans for capacity expansion. The company’s vision aligns with the Government of India’s Make in India policy, aiming to capitalize on the growing demand for coated and laminated fabrics in the domestic market.

Looking ahead, Candour Techtex Ltd, Amba Projex UK, and Saniti Exports are poised for a bright future, driven by a shared commitment to innovation, quality, and sustainability. As pioneers in the textile industry, they are set to redefine industry standards and contribute to India’s textile manufacturing prowess on the global stage. Through strategic partnerships and technological advancements, they continue to empower the textile industry and shape the future of textiles worldwide.

“We expect a very bright future in the coating and lamination industry, and our collaboration with Amba Projex UK and Sainit Exports has been nothing short of transformative. With their state-of-the-art technology and expertise, we’re not just meeting industry standards; we’re setting new benchmarks for excellence in textile manufacturing.” – Candour Techtex Ltd
