Yarns and textiles have, over time, evolved beyond garments in their uses. With modern technology aiding research and development, a whole world of new applications has opened for companies in this industry. One Singaporean company in particular has been instrumental in pushing the boundaries of yarn and fabric application, and that is KCTEX International.

Textile solutions expert KCTEX specialises in basic and technical fibres, yarns and fabrics used in apparel, home textiles, automotive fabrics and upholstery and other industrial applications.

“We are behind so many different brands from a variety of segments. We are that one common thread in the supply chain feeding to all the different applications,” says managing director Ramesh Parasuraman. “Customers count on our reliability, timeliness, quality, innovation and product diversity.”

Given the wide scope of applications of its wares, KCTEX works closely with customers to gain valuable insights that fuel its product development. Being on the ground also enables KCTEX to customise products according to specific customer requirements and price.

KCTEX continuously challenges itself to create new products yearly to become a full-scale service supplier. For its latest venture, KCTEX builds on its know-how and has more recently started producing sportswear apparel for select European brands.

Extending its reach, KCTEX has spun a vast net of subsidiaries and distributors in the United States, Europe, Middle East, South Asia, South America and China to serve a global clientele. Whether producing textile for carpets in Turkey, or proprietary fibre for car tyres in Germany, even flame-retardant curtains in many theatres worldwide, KCTEX has the capacity to exceed client demands.

KCTEX’s commitment to customers has fuelled its straight growth path for the past 15 years. In its continuing effort to move the business forward, KCTEX opens doors to more channel partners, agents and suppliers.

“We would definitely add significant value to businesses by partnering with them. We continuously seek newer and more innovative ways of providing sustainable value in terms of service or products,” Parasuraman says.
