சேலம் பாலா என்ற என் நண்பர் ஒருவர் சேலத்தில் மெர்லயன் என்ற பெயரில் காட்டன் ஆடைகள் செய்து விற்கும், ஏற்றுமதி செய்யும் கம்பனி வைத்திருக்கிறார். அதில் சில எதிர்பாராத பிரச்சனைகள் வந்துள்ளன. இந்தத் தொழிலில் ஆர்வமுள்ள வசதிபடைத்தவர்கள் அவருக்கு உதவலாம். அல்லது தொழிலில் பங்குதாரராகலாம். தொழிற்சாலையை அப்படியே வாங்கி தனியாக நடத்தலாம். படித்துப் பாருங்கள். முடிவு செய்யுங்கள்.
Reg: Invitation for participation by investment in an Export Oriented Unit.
I wish to introduce myself as Balasubramani, an Engineer who has been in the manufacture and export of woven as well as knitted garments for almost 2 decades now. I started the manufacture and export activity in a small way in 1995 and over the years grown manifold to set up the sate-of-the-art manufacturing facilities at both Salem and Tirupur towns. You may be aware that there are only a very few entrepreneurs who have the combined strength of their own manufacturing facilities and a full fledged supply cum export arrangement fully integrated. We are one among them with our own manufacturing units at Salem and Tirupur and a large storage and export processing units at both the places. We are a high quality conscious firm and in recognition of our quality standards, we have been bestowed with the ISO 9001: 2008 certification as also the Oeko-Tex@ Standard 100 certification for our products as well as the manufacturing facilities.
Over the years, our partnership unit Merlion Fashions had grown and as on date we have a large number of satisfied clients spread across the globe who place repeat orders with us for our products. We have a large contingent of trained manpower who can be deployed round the clock and thus ‘on time’ supply is our hall mark and we have the highest level of service standards. A visit to our manufacturing and export processing facilities will convince any potential investor of our capabilities.
As it happens to any unit in the export trade, our firm was affected by the sudden down turn in Europe and the steep rise in cotton prices rendering our working difficult. Added to this was the failure of a major buyer in USA in not paying our bills in time and the sudden hardening of the support by our bankers. All these had a serious effect and made the working of the units difficult and we have been facing one problem or the other since the beginning of 2011. With our strength and the firm belief that the bank would support us in view of our unblemished track record and the losses suffered being beyond our control, we continued to operate our business though in a reduced manner. Unfortunately, due to the continued negative attitude of the bankers and lack of timely support even for LC backed business, we could not come out of the problems and thus are looking for a strategic investor who can join us in our business and help us to restore the past glory. We are enclosing a brief profile of our company which will indicate the various strengths that are with us.
We are presently looking for an investor who can help us by investing in our firm to the extent of about Rs 5-6 Crores. We are also prepared to have partnership with such an investor and if the investor desires to fully take over the units, we are prepared to look at that option too. As mentioned, our bankers have stopped lending to us and our account has been classified as NPA with the bank. Our immediate concern is to stop the bank from initiating recovery proceedings against us and here we look for the prospective investor to enable us to clear the bank loan which is about Rs.150 lakhs [258620 USD ] as on date (The facilities with the bank are backed by collateral securities amounting to Rs550 lakhs[848275 USD]). We are prepared to enter into a well documented MoU with the investor on mutually acceptable terms and conditions. Having invested heavily in the business and after establishing a name and reputation for ourselves, we do not want any hasty action by our bank to affect the great opportunity available in export business especially when the climate is highly favourable.
We understand that you are looking for an opportunity to make a profitable investment in export business and we are glad to provide you with a platform for the purpose. Please let us know your interest in the venture and if need be, we can sit and discuss the modalities. In case you desire any further clarification in the matter, we are prepared to provide the same to your complete satisfaction. We are confident that your joining hands with us by making a strategic investment or in any other manner that you may consider worthwhile, it will be a win win situation for both of us. We look forward to your response at the earliest.

A satisfied customer is an unpaid salesman and it is very much true in our case. Since beginning our manufacturing and export activity in 2008, we have expanded both in terms of capacity as well as clientele. All new clientele were references of our old customers whom we could retain because of our quality, and commitment to supply. From a small beginning with 23 workers in 2008, we are a 250 plus company today catering to domestic as well as export markets across the world.
We are proud to say that we have strong communication network and respond fast to the customers’ requirements. We have well laid down systems and procedures, people who are well versed in all activities and an exclusive export division to cater to the requirements of our overseas clients.
We do have an integrated management system that enables us to monitor our processes with accuracy and to ensure timely delivery of our commitments.
We may further add that we possess latest technology in terms of machinery that can meet any requirement of a customer. We have two large plants one at Salem exclusively for Woven Fabrics and the other at Tirupur for Hosiery items.
As mentioned, our factories are capable of producing all types of clothes and garments and can run round the clock to meet even immediate commitments from clients. As Salem is well known for yarn and dyed fabrics, the raw material can be procured with ease and the lead time is very negligible. Besides, by virtue of our past dealings with our clients, we develop designs and fashions/ styles in advance for every season so that finalization of orders can be expedited.
As part of our commitment to a cleaner environment, we use only environment friendly dyes.
We are an SME in the field of export of fabrics, garments and knitted hosiery items and have carved out a name for ourselves due to our non compromising standards on quality and prompt delivery leading to customer satisfaction and retention. We work in close coordination with all export facilitating organizations in India and thus contribute our mite for the International trade from India. The very fact that we have a vast clientele, who are placing repeat orders, goes to establish our credentials.
