Royale Linens acquisition brings Yunus closer to U.S. market

Kearny, N.J. – Yunus Textile Mills, a Karachi, Pakistan-based manufacturer of sheets, comforters, comforter sets, bed ensembles and accessories, is in the process of acquiring Royale Linens here, and is making additions to all elements of its business, from manufacturing capacity to design, sales, distribution, and service.

Yunus generated approximately $200 million in revenue in 2006, roughly $120 million of it in sales to the U.S., according to the company.

Royale Linens has been involved in a strategic partnership with Yunus Textiles for more than five years, and will continue to operate with the same management after the ownership change, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Yunus Textile Mills, the company said.

Royale Linens president Dave Kaliski, noted, “The new formalized association with Yunus Textile Mills will eliminate obstacles in the supply chain and bring the expertise of Yunus manufacturing to the market with expanded product and a quick response dedication to inventory management.”

Yunus ceo Muhammad Ali Tabba said that he was “tremendously pleased with the growth of the company.”

Yunus will upgrade its manufacturing facilities with at least a 15% increase in sewing capacity in 2007, starting with the installation of additional automatic sewing equipment for sheets, said coo Nisar Palla. “The new equipment will greatly enhance the manufacturing capacity and flexibility of our company,” Palla said.
