How to set up a woven bag processing factory? We are frequently asked by investors from abraod. Although woven bags are widely used all over the world, the weaving bag factories are still concentrated in Asian countries such as China, India and Vietnam. In many countries where woven bags are frequently used, there are still no woven bag factories. What is the reason for this? Some of them are due to technical problems. Although the equipment shortage can be solved by importing, there are no skilled workers in production technology. When the equipment operation failure occurs, no technicians can solve the maintenance problems timely and accurately. Even if the technical problems are solved, the damage of machine parts still needs to be solved by importing, too much time consumption, it affecting production progress. In addition, the investment in the woven bag factory is huge, especially the production line of PP woven bag fabric, from drawing to Circular loom weaving, the investment could be millions of US dollars, which is not affordable for small and medium-sized investors.
What’s more, there are still huge advantage in labour cost and production rates in Asian countires. Direct importing of finished products from Asian countries is still cost effectively.
However, direct importing of finished woven bags also has its inherent disadvantages, that is, timeliness.
For example, a customer in the Caribbean area needs 50000pcs of flour woven bags. He contacted with a manufacturer of woven bags from China, ranging from negotiation to confirmation of orders and then to factory production, which will takes around 15 days. Then custom clearance, sea transportation, then land tranportation to destination, it will totally takes like 2 months. This is a disaster for urgently required bags. So, all around the world, small processing plant has begun to appear recent years. They import semi-finished woven bag fabric rolls from China and purchase some equipment for cutting, sewing and printing. After receiving the purchase order from their customers in their country, they use the woven bag fabric rolls stored in the warehouse, and to process according to the requirements of the customers, and deliver the woven bags to the customers in a very short time. This is a perfect combination of production cost and delivery time, which will become a long-term development trend in the future.
