WUXI, China, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleantech Solutions International, Inc. ("Cleantech Solutions" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: CLNT), a manufacturer of metal components and assemblies used in in various manufacturing industries, including clean technology, textile dyeing and finishing machines, today announced that its operating company, Wuxi Huayang Dyeing Machinery Co., Ltd. ("Huayang Dyeing"), a variable interest entity, received a purchase order in January for its newly developed air-fluid, dual-use dyeing machine from a leading weaving and dyeing enterprise based in Shaoxing, China.
The Company's new air-fluid, dual-use dyeing machine uses both air flow and fluid flow in the dyeing process. It allows users to customize the dyeing process according to the specific type of textile. It is equipped with a series of specialized and patented components, including nozzles, cloth wheels and cloth spreaders, which help ensure greater color evenness and reduce defects. It can be used on a wider range of textiles and uses 60% to 70% less water, about 30% less power and 40% to 50% less steam than traditional models of high-temperature, high-pressure dyeing machines and reduces the use of additives by about 50% while shortening dyeing time by 1 to 2 hours.
Pursuant to the purchase order, Huayang Dyeing will provide the customer 12 units of the new air-fluid, dual-use dyeing machine. Huayang Dyeing received an advance payment of approximately RMB0.7 million ($0.1 million), and will receive an additional RMB5.6 million ($0.9 million) upon delivery, and will receive the remaining RMB0.7 million ($0.1 million) within seven months of delivery provided that all products are installed, tested and running smoothly. The Company expects to begin delivering the equipment in May 2015.
"We are excited to receive this purchase order from one of our long-time customers, who has been testing prototypes of our new air-fluid, dual-use dyeing machine over the last six months and we believe that its satisfaction with the quality, energy efficiency and environmental benefits are reflected in this purchase order," said Mr. Jianhua Wu, Chairman and CEO of Cleantech Solutions. "As the Chinese government continues to enforce stricter emission standards and the adoption of energy-efficient textile processing and production equipment, we are very optimistic about market demand for this new dyeing machine in the Chinese market."
Cleantech Solutions plans to showcase its new air-fluid, dual-use dyeing machine at the 17th Shanghai International Textile Industry Expo, one of the largest exhibitions for the textile and garment industry in Asia that will be held from June 15 to June 18, 2015 in Pudong, Shanghai, China. The Company hopes to attract more customers from both domestic and international markets, especially from Southeast Asia where textile manufacturers traditionally purchase expensive imports from Europe and Hong Kong.
