After launching personal hygiene and beauty care products made from spunlaced nonwovens in India, Ginni Filaments is considering expanding into medical products using the innovation unit under its consumer products division.
Sanjay Srivastava, chief operating officer, Ginni Filaments said, “Medical products are on our radar, and we would look at introducing products like disposable gowns, drapes, bed sheets, etc. in this category.”
Explaining the decision to get into the medical products market, Mr. Srivastava added that there is a demand for disposable gowns and the like from the medical industry as the costs of dry cleaning and sterilizing these items is high.
The company will be introducing these products in about seven months. At present, the company is concentrating on the pan India rollout of the beauty and baby wipes made from spunlace nonwovens.
The company will also be introducing more products like skin-firming and whitening masks within the next few months.
Ginni is currently building India’s first spunlace operation, with a capacity of 12,000 metric tons, in Gujarat state, which is expected to be operationational, by the end of the year.
Initially, Ginni will also export spunlaced nonwovens to southeast Asia and the Middle East.
