After experience in Facility Management for 7 years, SILA brings to the best of your knowledge to maintain a textile factory.

5 Tips to Improve Maintenance Standards at Your Textile Factory

In 2012, SILA was asked to propose a solution to maintain a few of Alok Industries’ manufacturing units in Silvassa. Focus was to implement an efficient solution and upgrade the maintenance levels at their factories. After SILA’s success case at Alok Industries, we have grown to service other companies in the Textile Industry across Gujarat, Maharashtra & Karnataka – Bhilosa Industries, The Creative Group, Sanathan Textiles, Color Lines to name a few.

Based on our learnings & experience, we have listed the five most important points to keep in mind when maintaining Textile Factories.

1. Use the Right Machines, Equipment, Chemicals 

Most textile facilities that we come across use local detergents such as phenyl, washing powders, household brooms to clean their Factories. Times have changed drastically. Using high grade chemicals with the technology & machines has allowed us to make the maintenance process more efficient, reducing the dependence on Labor.  

2. Tailored Processes
