Quality, transparency and trust are the core values that drive us at Precot to deliver sustainable cotton products. We are committed to building a long-term partnership based on trust with all our clients.
Around 60 Years in the Cotton Industry
When we started production in 1962, we had an initial capacity of 12,096 spindles. Our first cotton mill was in Kanjikode, Kerala. Now, we have units in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. We have 188112 spindles. This journey has taken us 6 decades and along the way, we’ve grown as an enterprise and a brand. We gradually adopted sustainable practises, starting from growing organic cotton to using green energy. We are proud to be one of the leading cotton mills in India with an international presence. Precot is one of India’s top suppliers of cotton products to textile mills, manufacturers and brands.
Vertically Integrated Facility
Our vertical integrated facility places us at a strategic advantage in terms of production efficiency and quality output. This system allows us to fine tune our supply chain so that we are able to quickly distribute supplies when the demand increases. It gives us more control over the supply chain, from production to delivery. At the same time, it helps lower prices, which is beneficial for our customers.
Cleaning & Peroxide Bleaching
- Fiber Opening
- Pad Punching as per Customer Request
- Finished Product Manufacturing
Sustainability is one of the core principles on which our entire business process is built. From sourcing to packaging, we follow sustainable practises every step of the way. It is because we believe that our success is not just in the profit margins, but also in what we return to the environment and the people who work with us.
We also aim to raise awareness about sustainable cotton products, so the mills, manufacturers and brands that partner with us also use organic cotton. This way, we can soon make organic cotton a mainstream choice across all segments. By increasing use of sustainable cottons, we help the cotton farms, their farming ecosystem and their communities.
At Precot, we follow sustainable practices in three major areas – Sourcing (Raw Material), use of green energy and eco-friendly waste management system.
