Sakhawat Abu Khair said, “I have always kept the environment in my mind in every aspect. Back in 1996, when I started the factory, I installed an ETP. Back then it was unthinkable.”
Robintex Group, a Germany-Bangladesh Joint venture, has internationally been renowned for its continual accomplishment in exporting quality knit apparel to the international markets from its establishment in 1996.
With the world-leading machinery, technology and expertise from Germany, the USA, UK, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Italy, Singapore and India, it has been resolutely shaped to qualify to be a full-fledged vertically integrated composite knit premise.
Besides all of the required utilities and about 0.71 million square feet of floor space for production, it has plenty of open space, lush greenery and necessary environmental protection measures as well. With 1864 sewing machines, here, about 7500 skilled workforce members are working in an ideal environment to produce about 0.1 million pieces of high-quality and diverse types of knit garments every day.
Conceding to its buyers’ increasing demands, Robintex has now committed an additional investment worth about US$28.20M in the same premise to strengthen and enhance its production capacity.
Robintex has taken initiative to put its footprint in the sustainability and water-saving process. Robintex recently signed a 20 Years Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) deal with Joules Power Ltd (JPL) to install facilities for generating 3.1 MWp (Mega Watt peak) rooftop solar electricity. This will be Bangladesh’s largest Industrial Solar Rooftop Project to be commissioned by Fiscal Year 2020-21.
The electricity will be generated on 32,886 square metres of rooftop area of several buildings of Robintex Group at Rupganj in Narayanganj district. The project will be implemented within nine months under the ‘Opex model’ where the builder will invest some $1.7 million.
Not to mention, Robintex installed a state-of-the-art digital printing machine which print over 70 meter fabric per minute.
Also, harvesting rainwater is one of the projects where Robintex Group invested not for making money rather to contribute to sustainability. To run the project Robintex Group divided it into three segments –
- Average normal rainfall calculation in Bangladesh (mm).
- Rainwater harvesting plan.
- Rainwater harvesting model.
The project designed and constructed based on the forecast and average rainfall of Bangladesh particularly in the Dhaka division area where the factory is situated.
