Gul Ahmed decided once again for Benninger: Quality products
from quality machines
Gul Ahmed began its business in the early 1900’s and is now
playing a vital role in the world of textiles. It is a composite
unit – making everything from cotton yarn to finished products.
Gul Ahmed has a huge range of textile machinery – from spindles
and weaving machines to the whole range of finishing machines.
Believing in quality Gul Ahmed has already chosen Benninger
in 2009 for the first time and acquired an original
Benninger-Küsters DyePad for their dyeing department.
Now again the traditional Swiss textile machinery
manufacturer Benninger recently provided a high quality
mercerizing machine DIMENSA to Gul Ahmed. The reason for
choosing Benninger was primarily the technological advantages
such as improved dimensional stability, higher dye yield, better
solidity and appearance of dyed fabric and high lustre.
By using Benninger’s DIMENSA they could increase both - their
productivity and quality. According to Gul Ahmed, they now
benefit from even dyeing results which in turn leads to even
fabric appearance and exact identical color depths not only over
the width but also in length direction of the batch. Thanks to
the unmatched fabric control and the possibility to apply
maximum tension onto the fabric the lustre and hand of the
fabric are significantly improved.

Sustainable production is always at the heart of Gul Ahmed
and they strive their best to reduce energy and water
consumption throughout the entire production process. They have
already set up a wastewater treatment plant to treat 100% of its
effluent, bringing it to NEQS levels. With their new DIMENSA
mercerizing range they acquired a heat exchanger, which enables
a possible heat recovery up to 50% and therefore reduces energy
Gul Ahmed is using Benninger machines primarily for producing
sheeting fabrics for major clients all over the world.
The name Gul Ahmed is globally synonymous with quality,
innovation & reliability and so is the name of Benninger. It is
a common objective for both companies to continue enhancing the
success of their customers by increasing the technological lead
and keeping the quality standard at the highest level.
