Belcoro: The seal of approval for high-speed yarns
At the start of the year, three companies in the Turkish textile stronghold in and around Kahramanmaras were awarded globally recognised Belcoro certification by Schlafhorst. Beyteks Tekstil San Ve Tic AS of Ceyhan, along with Akarca Mensucat San Ve Tic AS and Elif Iplik Tekstil Insaat Tic Ve San Ltd. Sti of Kahramanmaras now belong to the exclusive club of companies able to supply certified yarns of the highest quality.
For Beyteks Tekstil, which produces more than 20,000 tonnes of certified yarn a year, Belcoro is an integral part of its quality management. "Through Belcoro certification we show our customers that Beyteks manufactures yarns of high quality and also maintains this high quality level in the long term," says Ali Abdullah Ilbeyli, a member of the management team. "The Belcoro seal of approval will thus become a permanent element of our marketing communications."
For Akarca Mensucat, established in 2002, Belcoro is above all a seal of quality for its high-speed yarns. The company has been able to increase its productivity by 50 per cent with Schlafhorsts new Autocoro 8 rotor spinning machines. "We have benefited inestimably from the know-how transfer in the certification process," says Yusuf Akarca, chairman of the companys executive board. "We delight our customers with optimum quality that can be reproduced economically." High speed and high quality are also important to Elif Iplik. The company manufactures 13,000 tonnes of viscose yarn annually and increased its productivity by 40 per cent with the new Autocoro 8 machines.
