ST Group set up an open-end spinning textile unit by the name of Golden Fibers, which started operations in 2009. With an installed capacity of 3000 rotors and 15 frames, the mill produces cotton yarn that is either exported or provided to the local market.
Open end spinning or open-end spinning is a technology for creating yarn without using a spindle. It is also known as break spinning or rotor spinning. In this process the fiber sliver is separated into single fibers and in which the separated fiber material is brought by an air stream to a collecting surface from which it is drawn off while being twisted.
