Prilla 2000 Receives Oerlikon Schlafhorst Belcoro® Certification

Germany-based Oerlikon Schlafhorst, a business unit of Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG, has awarded Belcoro® certification to Prilla 2000 (PTY) Ltd., a South Africa-based spinning mill. The certification is presented to textile companies that have installed Oerlikon Schlafhorst rotor-spinning machines equipped with original Belcoro spinning components for the production of Belcoro quality yarns. Prilla 2000 operates five Autocoro 8 rotor-spinning machines that produce Belcoro yarns for the domestic and European markets.

Prilla 2000 employs 280 people in a three-shift system at its spinning mill, and produces 9,000 tons of yarn annually — mainly 100-percent cotton rotor and ring-spun yarns ranging from Ne 16 to Ne 24 for use in terry goods, flat woven fabric and knitted fabric. The company is certified to the ISO 9000 and Organic Exchange OE 100 standards.
