Huntsman Textile Effects, the leading global provider of high-quality dyes, chemicals, and digital inks for textile-related industries, has been conferred the ‘Top exporter of the year’ award by the Gujarat Dyestuffs Manufacturers Association (GDMA).

The award, which recognizes excellence in direct exports of dyes and dye intermediaries from 2018 to 2019, was presented by Ranjeeth Kumar, IAS, commissioner, ministry of Small and Medium Enterprises, Government of Gujarat, at a ceremony in Ahmedabad recently, amid strict Covid-19 protocols.

“We are very pleased to accept this award and recognition from the apex body GDMA. It is a testimony for Huntsman’s contribution towards India and Gujarat’s export earnings and commitment towards playing an important role in the economic prosperity of the sector and the region where we operate,” said Kavishwar Kalambe, site director-Baroda, Huntsman Textile Effects.

Huntsman Baroda site focusing on various sectors

Huntsman operates a state-of-the-art global dyes and chemicals manufacturing unit in a designated industrial zone of Padra in Baroda, Gujarat. The facility is spread across 62 acres and offers direct and indirect employment to over 800 people. 

The site is currently involved in a community outreach project with three surrounding villages, focusing on education, health, water and sanitation, and animal husbandry under CSR initiatives.

The GDMA is an apex body of all dyes and dye intermediate manufacturers in Gujarat, established in 1962. It represents 80% of the dyestuff manufacturers of Gujarat, contributing approximately 60% of the country’s total exports. These units have a combined turnover of about Rs 25,000 crore.

The dyestuff industries of Gujarat generate more than one lakh direct employment and 1.5 lakh indirect employment. The dyestuff industry generates approximately Rs 5,500 crore GST and around Rs 700 crore of income tax.

 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
