INKA 2019

We want to thank our customers one more time for the past year and for your good cooperation. Year 2018 was especially meaningful for Inka, because we celebrated our 120th anniversary.

This year we are investing especially in developing our production methods and manufacturing processes, and for this purpose Ella Teivainen has been appointed Inka’s production development engineer starting from 2nd of January 2019. We have also invested in new machines. We have purchased a finishing machine, a festooning machine and a roll and spool winder, that we aim to have working by the end of February. In addition to the things mentioned above, we will also implement ISO 14001 in 2019.

Virrat County’s Enterprise of the Century

                                                                                                                                               The nearly 120-year-old company, Inka, was chosen as Virrat county’s enterprise of the century in November. Inka was chosen based on the following factors: Inka has operated in the textile business for a long time, it has employed many generations during the years and the brand is well-known in several industries around the world.

Inka manufactures hundreds of articles to different industries, and it employs 39 people at present. Inka’s main market areas are Finland, Scandinavia and the Baltic countries, but it also exports goods to Asia.

We are grateful and happy for the recognition, and thankful to our employees and stakeholders who have made it possible. This is a great start for 2018 and Inka’s 120th birthday.

Developments at Inka

There are two big developments at Inka, we want to inform our partners about. The first one is the new dyeing machine, that has been used since November. With the new machine we are able to dye with bigger volume compared to our previous dyeing machine. Polyester, polyamide, cotton, acetate and viscose are the materials that can be dyed with the new machine. The maximum width is 300 mm, and speed 10 – 30 meters in a minute.

The other development is the new IBS Enterprise ERP system from Iptor Supply Chain Systems, that will be implemented in the beginning of 2017. New system enables us to focus on our core business and add value for customers by decreasing lead time, increasing delivery reliability and improving customer service, because with IBS Enterprise it is easier to control and manage different processes. The system has been developed especially to manufacturing business environment. It covers all the processes from supply chain planning and management to bookkeeping. We will also implement Apix e-invoicing in the beginning of 2017.
