At the exhibition of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan, which opened on Friday, timed to coincide with the 15th anniversary of this association, many already well-known private companies presented their products, including «Batly gadam», a member of the UIET, from Balkanabat. This textile company produces high-quality cotton yarns and socks that comply with the ISO international environmental standard. The monthly production capacity of the enterprise, equipped with modern European equipment, is 600 tons of cotton yarn and 2,000,000 different socks.
Enesoltan Mammetnyyazova, a representative of «Batly gadam», said that these products are in great demand both on the domestic market and outside the country. 90 percent of the cotton yarn produced is exported, while the rest is used for the production of men's, women's and children's socks, which are 80% cotton, 16% polyamide and 4% elastane. Soft and pleasant to wear, they come in a variety of colours and designs. If earlier the company produced sock products under two trademarks, now it has launched production under the third trademark «Eco».
To meet the demand for high-quality cotton yarn, «Batly gadam» plans to expand its production by launching a second workshop, for which equipment has already been purchased. In addition, the company seeks to expand its range of products and intends to master the production of towels. According to Enesoltan, in order to purchase equipment for new production and study Chinese experience, the company's management is going to the People's Republic of China one of these days.
«Batly gadam» seeks not only to saturate the domestic market with a variety of textile products and expand the «geography» of export supplies, but also to fully provide production with its own raw materials. In the land plot allocated to the IP in the Serdar etrap of the Balkan velayat, cotton is grown, which serves as the main raw material in textile production. The company believes that the cultivation of cotton and its processing on the spot brings significant economic benefits to the business and reduces the cost of production, and hence the price for consumers.
