The Russian industry holding BTK Holding opened in 2015 in the town of Shakhty of the Rostov region a unique complex of enterprises, equipped with the latest equipment, providing a full cycle of high-tech textile production from synthetic fibers.
BTK Holding is located on the territory of the former Shakhtinsky cotton mill named after the 50th anniversary of the USSR (KBC) - one of the giants of the Soviet light industry, which was launched in 1970. The company specialized in the production of knitted and weaving products, and also performed a full cycle of fiber processing - from yarn to finished fabrics and garments for various purposes. Odanko, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, production gradually fell into disrepair.
The production area of the former KBC in the town of Shakhty was acquired by BTK Holding in 2013. In the course of a large-scale reconstruction, all production and administrative premises were overhauled to meet the requirements of installing the latest modern textile equipment.
Currently, the premises of the industrial complex meet all international requirements for modern production and are located on an area of 120,000 square meters. m

All production sites are equipped with a park of unique modern equipment.
At the initial stage of the production chain, the world famous washing units TRIKOFLEX and EXTRACTA,
developed by the Swiss company Benninger, are used. TRIKOFLEX washing machines are designed to clean the
fabric before the dyeing process: washing the sizing agent, removing residues of the dressing (adhesive
solution for sizing the bases of the fabric in order to give it strength and smoothness) and other
With the help of the EXTRACTA unit, excess dyes are washed off after printing.
The dyeing area of finishing production is equipped with the following types of equipment: Inspection Machines MAAG (Switzerland), intended for visual inspection.
Having a reflective mirror and loupe in the car improves viewing and inspection efficiency.
Universal drying-spreading machines MONFORTS (Germany), which can perform a complex of finishing operations (soaking, drying, broadening duck, shrinking on the base, cutting and gluing the edges of knitted fabrics, etc.) These machines provide high-quality processing, smooth the fabric, straighten curved edges and in some cases correct diagonal weft yarns.
Dyeing machines from FONG ‘S (Germany) and VALC HENRIKSEN (Holland) are used to dye the fabric. A
distinctive feature of the FONG ‘S machine is the uniform application of dyes, the smallest mechanical
stress and the minimum web tension during dyeing.
Jiggers of VALD HENRIKSEN are universal machines and are used for pretreatment, washing and dyeing fabrics. For applying a multi-color printed pattern on the fabric, a machine for printing with cylindrical mesh patterns like ROTASCREEN-TG from ZIMMER (Austria) is used.
The new ROTASCREEN-TG has the latest state-of-the-art paint and cleaning solution distribution system, which reduces consumption and makes it uniform, as well as simplifies the process of washing and processing mesh patterns.
For fixing the printing composition is used steam machine continuous SALVA DE (Italy).
To ensure vapor-permeable and at the same time water-repellent properties of the fabric, a special membrane is used, which is glued by the SANTEX machine (Switzerland) on the reverse side of the fabric with the help of hot melt adhesive.
Knitwear and weaving
Knitting machines and circular knitting machines are manufactured by MAYER & CIE (Germany), knotting and
drawing machines made by USTER (Switzerland) and SANTONI (Italy). The weaving industry uses bioxial and
multiaxial machines from KARL MAYER (Germany), a leading European manufacturer of specialized equipment
for technical textiles. The rapier weaving machines DORNIER (Germany), which are distinguished by high
performance, flexibility and reliability in operation, are installed.
The machines are equipped with numerous patented devices that provide a new level of product quality and machine reliability. In particular, with the help of the patented PIC (Permanent Insertion Control) system, continuous electronic control of the main duck input elements is carried out.
Thanks to the ServoControl mechanism, the pressure is regulated (supply of main and transfer air (pulling nozzles, which varies depending on the time of arrival of the thread).
Innovative solutions of the company LECTRA (France) - software and equipment for the implementation of the whole complex of works, from design to cutting industrial fabrics, are used at the sewing production. Knitwear is sewn exclusively by JUKI sewing machines (Japan). PFAFF machines (Germany) provide operations for sizing stitches. Also, the clothing industry is equipped with modern complexes for wet-heat treatment, ironing presses and ironing tables.
