Heksatex knits stronghold in textile industry
With global demand for knitted textiles and apparel forecast to grow steadily, Heksatex Indah is strongly positioned in the booming textile sector as Indonesia's leading warp-knitting specialist. A manufacturer and exporter of warp-knitted textile for fashion and industrial use, Heksatex is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and advanced workflow systems to serve key markets in Asia, the Middle East and the United States.
"We are one of the few companies in Indonesia and the world with the expertise in warp-knitting," says president and director Pudji Amiyanto. "We can provide elastic materials that are more rigid, secure and metred than woven materials. Warp-knitted materials are versatile and can be used for lingerie, shoes, furnishings, construction and vehicle fabrics."
Heksatex built its stronghold in warp-knitting under the inspiring leadership of Amiyanto, who leveraged his experience as a machine technician for a warp-knitting company to establish Heksatex with a partner in 1992. Assuming full ownership in 1999, Amiyanto continued to bolster the company's productivity, quality and research and development. Heksatex keeps its equipment in top condition, making sure that machines are maintained and upgraded regularly.
Exporting 55 per cent of its fabrics to different countries including Japan, Heksatex also supplies many garment factories in Indonesia that are in turn producing for international labels. "Most of the factories that we supply manufacture for overseas brands. Of the 45 per cent of products that we sell locally, most will also be exported as finished goods," Amiyanto says. The company wins the loyalty of its local and international customers through its commitment to meticulously follow client designs and by guaranteeing quick shipment and competitive pricing.
Heksatex is building a new site in Purwakarta to strengthen its capability in meeting increasing market demand, particularly for technical textiles used in various industries, including automotive, construction, footwear and furniture.
