India's PDS Multinational Fashions Limited has acquired a 50 per cent stake in Filkor Limited, a UK-based entity, with an investment of £500,000 through its subsidiary company Smart Notch Industrial Limited. PDS is a design-led sourcing, manufacturing and supply chain platform catering to leading brands and retailers with a presence in over 22 countries. The global apparel industry annually produces massive levels of waste from the disposal of its excess stock, which amounts to apparel and accessories worth tens of millions of pounds. These huge waste levels go on to significantly contribute to environmental problems such as landfills, wastewater and global greenhouse gas emissions. Filkor has effectively developed an automated repurposing system, which by using patented collection and processing methods, produces and utilises the resultant waste to create a brand-new substrate that can be used in a wide range of global industries. This repurposing system enables the product to be securely destroyed in one single operation, effectively and quickly, providing fashion houses with a socially and environmentally acceptable solution. “We are thrilled to add Filkor to our portfolio which enables repurposing and upcycling and is expected to benefit the fashion industry. For us at PDS, sustainability and circularity are critical and investments like Filkor enable us to further strengthen our capabilities and have a positive impact on the ecosystem in which we operate,” said Pallak Seth, vice chairman, based out of Hong Kong. “PDS is carefully identifying opportunities which are in sync with our overall vision, and we are also focusing on technologies and solutions for the future. Filkor fits perfectly within our portfolio from both a business and environmental perspective,” said Sanjay Jain, Group CEO. “We are all very excited about the opportunity that has unfolded as a result of this investment with such a prestigious brand, PDS, and we are now looking forward to taking this amazing Filkor process globally across the fashion world,” said Barry Kane, managing director and inventor of the Filkor Process.
