The Indian textile industry is not only a prominent employment generator but also an exporter of huge quantities of organic textiles. Being home to the production of 70 percent of the world’s organic cotton crop, India exports cotton in different processing stages from bale to yarn, fabric, and garment. To achieve the goal of sustainable lifestyle, there is a great shift happening wherein the industry is moving away from synthetic fabrics & highly processed fabrics into simpler clothing and fabrics. People are more aware of how certain industrial processes in the textile industry have harmful effects on the environment, if not done sustainably.
Clothing made from organic fibers & sustainable yarns addresses the key requirements of being ecologically conscious and responsible. This is the key factor driving the demand for Organic Textiles. One such company offering a variety of fabrics in Organic cotton and cotton blends is Tirupur-based GMS Processors Pvt Ltd. Founded & Established by Mr. Govind Karnani in 1989, GMS Processors supplies high-quality and cost-effective ready-to-cut knitted fabrics to clients across the country & overseas.
GMS PROCESSORS is an integrated enterprise with extensive experience of over 5 decades in the Knit Fabric & Garment industry. The company’s experience covers key verticals from sourcing of the best quality yarn and fibres, through
partnerships with world-class spinning mills, as well as Knitting, In-House Dyeing & Processing, Import-Export, Retail & E-Commerce. “This extensive experience and knowledge give us an edge in understanding the requirements and solving various kinds of issues of our clients, easily. We have evolved as a company to provide superior quality, premium knit fabrics and specialized fabrics. This evolution has happened naturally and organically,” affirms Sharan Karnani, Managing Director, GMS Processors.
GMS PROCESSORS factory is OEKOTEX, GOTS, BCI & CONTROL UNION certified. Since sustainability is a critical factor for the textile industry in general, the company has invested to build its own Individual Waste WaterTreatment Plant (IETP) within the company’s factory premises.
4-Point Quality Check system
The quality of fabric supplied is a non-negotiable requirement in the textile business. Therefore, manufacturers need to have a thorough quality check before sending goods to clients. GMS Processors follows a 4-point Quality Check system. “Quality is the secret to our success. We believe that offering good quality fabric is a key reason why customers keep coming back to us,” highlights Sharan Karnani.
“Our team comprises a mix of experienced and young executives and managerial professionals. Our General Manager, Mr. P.R.

Each department and category of business has its role carved out. With the combined experience of our founders and well versed on-ground experience of our management, we are on track to grow at well-maintained pace,” adds Karnani.
Talking about the future expansion plans of the company, he says,” We have prepared our 5-year plan of growing our revenue extensively through sustainable practices and integrated growth between our verticals. We are looking at adding more value - moving gradually from offering dyeing & processing job work-services, to supplying good quality ‘ready to cut’ Knit Fabrics. The next stepping stone which we look to move towards is further strengthening our infrastructure and building a vertical setup where we can manufacture and supply finished garments.” The key goal for GMS PROCESSORS PVT LTD is for all production processes to be outlined to achieve Sustainable Growth.
