Established in 1989, SP Apparels is a leading manufacturer and exporter of garments in India as well as the global arena. The company operates under two divisions: garments (for children) and retail. Under the garments division, the company has been, over the past two decades, a pioneer and a leader in the manufacture and export of knitted garments for infants and children in India and foreign markets.
Under retail segment, the company is the exclusive licensee for the manufacture and distribution of the Hong Kong-based global major Crocodile’s range of branded products in India since 2015.
The group that started as a partnership went on to set up its own manufacturing facility in Neelambur in Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. The company also set up its first embroidery facility in nearby Thekkalur in 2003 and also a flagship factory at Avinashi with complete garment processing facilities in 2004.
Further the company set up dyeing facilities and made strategic investments in several companies (including offshore one at UK) including Crocodile in India. Leading the team is P. Sundararajan as Chairman and Managing Director since 2005, ably supported by S. Latha, the company’s Executive Director and Mr.S. Chenduran as its Whole Time Director.
As a part of its backward integration S P Apparels ventured into spinning during 2007 by taking over an existing unit at Vazhapadi (near Salem, Tamil Nadu). After successfully running for a decade, expansion program was planned in 2018-19 to more than double the output from 2160 tpa to 5400 tpa in the same premises.
Going through its rigorous evaluation process LMW became a clear winner catering to 100% of its expansion requirement. This includes LMW’s latest and most successful Compact Systems – Spinpact, High Speed Combers LK69 and latest Breaker and Finisher Draw-frames LDB3 and LDF3 respectively. The project has all the automation built in viz Link-winders and Bobbin Transportation Systems.
