Nitin Spinners boasts of a vast product presence across India and over 50 countries spread across the globe. Emerging as a solution provider, the Company has slowly and steadily made its presence in key international markets such as the Unites States of India (USA), the United Kingdom (UK) and European nations. With a presence in these key geographies, the Company is well-suited to capitalise on the emerging opportunities in these markets and expand our presence in emerging markets.

Strengthening our capacities Amid the pandemic, we acted swiftly to stay on track with our business goals and invested strategically in the most critical areas of our long-term growth.

We introduced new initiatives and measures across functions, while systems and processes were strengthened manifold to create an enabling environment for the Company to pursue growth.

Our organisational capabilities delivered a strong performance. We have also been successful in almost doubling our international business. While the COVID outbreak was undoubtedly a catastrophic event, we saw in it the opportunity to fast-track our growth process to emerge as a globally recognised player in the textile industry. We focused on enhancing our research and development (R&D) capabilities in such a way that it helps us in creating an innovative portfolio of products that fulfils the unmet and unarticulated needs of our customers.

Pursuing sustainability

We undertook several targeted measures during the year to help us remain on track toward our goal of sustainable, long-term growth. The infusion of new technologies and talent pool across different levels and functions has ushered a new level of dynamism into the organisation as we gear up to become future-ready across functions, systems, processes, and people.

We are excited by the growth opportunities in our textile industry, underpinned by the increasing demand for e-commerce and more sustainable clothing solutions. We focused on offering products made from sustainable fibres like organic and BCI cotton or recycled fibres. Our unique product portfolio, expertise in understanding the best material choices, and customer focused innovation capabilities help us deliver textile solutions that are sustainable by design. This helps us to contribute to a sustainable ecosystem and allows us to grow our existing customer base as well as service new customers.

Road ahead

Our ability to create value is a direct result of the significant efforts and resilience of our people. To capitalise on growing demand and further strengthen our product range ,we are undergoing capacity expansion at our existing facilities at a cost outlay of Rs. 955 crore enhancing capacity of all the three segments. The expansion plans will complete in year 2023-24.
