Century Textiles & Industries Limited is a Learning Organization. The rich cultural heritage of 102 great years of its progressive and dynamic existence is proof enough towards the high value being given to HRM. Contemporary systems and methods are in place to sharpen the individual skill levels as well as to improve the quality of life. Many research scholars and authors in their publications have quoted company's strong and valued HR policies.

Some of the pointers are:

A scientific way of recruitment and staffing. A transparent promotion policy.
Round the year Training and Refresher programmes.
Equal emphasis on Technical as well as Behavioural training inputs.
Incentives for increasing educational attainment both for the employees and their children.
Focus on spiritual and ethical values.
A number of Employee's Welfare Schemes are in practice


Century Textiles is well known for a vigilant and professional management. To promote Human Resource Development, it imparts regular training to all workers and organises refresher courses for Supervisory and Management cadre staff. It has a team of dedicated and experienced workmen, managerial, technical staff and executives. It has cordial relations with workmen and their representative union.

With planned and channelised material feeding to machines, it has been possible to achieve machine utilisation of 99.5% of the installed capacity and manufacture yarn and fabrics of International standard.


Basic feature of Century's marketing policy is "FIRST SELL, THEN PRODUCE". Century's sales policy for world-wide export is sell for 6 months at a time - (January to June and July to December) and this sale is completed 2 months in advance before the commencement of the period for which the sale is made.

For domestic market the same is for 2 months at a time and that too in advance. By this policy it is possible to control the inventory of fabric to the bare minimum.

All fabrics therefore, are delivered to the buyers in India and world-over only after receipt of full payment through irrevocable letter of credit at sight in case of export and by demand documentary bill in domestic market. This has been achieved as a result of excellent quality of fabrics appreciated by fashion lovers world-over and fair business dealings.

Internationally the Indian textiles are sold with two names viz. Century Textiles and Indian Mills. Century Fabrics for export are offered for pre-shipment inspection to the government inspecting agency, "Textiles Committee" under standard A-1, which is the highest grade under which presently no other Indian mill is offering its fabrics.

Being in the business of textiles manufacturing and marketing, with decades of success in export, Century takes special care with regard to its dealing with domestic and international customers. It is by now renowned for its:

Quick business responses
Planned business bookings
Timely despatches
Meticulous pre-packing quality inspection
Zero-defect fabric
Extra careful packaging
Customer feed-back evaluation
After sales service
Fair business policies
It is to the credit of the mill that it has established and maintained most cordial business equation with a string of leading buyers from all over the globe.


Century stands for energy conservation by process renovation and upgrading of techniques. In recognition to its outstanding achievement century bagged 4 Gold Trophies and one Sliver Trophy from the "I.B.P.L. Urja Research Foundation."


Being environment conscious, Century has adequate pollution control arrangements both for water and air to provide healthy atmosphere in the locality.

Its clean technology for dyeing of sulphur black colour has been cited as a lone example from textile industry world over, in United Nations publication "CLEANER PRODUCTION WORLDWIDE " published from England. For this technology Century also received Indian Merchant Chambers Award as an outstanding contribution in Technology Research pertaining to the textile industry.

In a planned manner. Century Textiles has phased out the use of toxic and harmful dyes and chemicals by switching over to the use of non-toxic, biodegradable dyes, chemicals and enzymes.

Thus, Century Textiles became the first textile unit in India to receive Humano-Ecological Oeko-tex Certificate for "Confidence in Textiles" from Germany for its fabric exported world-over. Scope of the Oek-tex certificate has been continuously enlarged and at present it covers the entire product range being manufactured.

It also became possible to modify the effluent treatment plant to generate Biogas, which is utilised in the mills, making it an example of Wealth from Waste.

Century Textile's case has been elaborated in the changing consumption and production patterns book " UNLOCKING TRADE OPPORTUNITIES " by the International Institute of Environment and Development, London, prepared for United Nations Department of Policy Co-ordination and Sustainable Development. This book was released in Earth Summit +5 Conference held in New York during May 1997.
