About Centex Fabrics Export Unit
“Centex Exports” was established in the year 1969, by Mr. R.P.D. Sood, father of Mr. Vineet Sood, with the motto of “devotion to excellence”. Under the transformational leadership & vision of Mr. Vineet Sood our Managing Director, Centex has grown constantly in terms of quality & processes. With Mr. Vineet Sood’s die hard approach and positive attitude towards every situation, it has inspired everyone in the organization to strive for excellence. With the continuous efforts of our innovative & professional team, today we are known for our artistic range of products all across the world. We challenge ourselves to do something new and extra ordinary everyday which would help us to delve deep into our potentialities and strength.
The continuous innovation in design, colours, fabrics & treatments and the in-house facilities, with a capacity to prepare 3,00,000 units per month, ensure that we remain more than ready to meet the expectations of our valuable customers worldwide which includes Chopard, Burberry, Coach, Polo Ralph Lauren, Mulberry, Hugo Boss, Gap, Banana Republic & many other leading high end brands. We aim to be one of the largest state of the art scarf manufacturing facility in the world and this has evolved from our achievements in the past, which are: 1) as we began to export, one of the first orders arrived from London’s Marks and Spencer’s flagship store in Oxford Street. This entire stock was sold out within a few hours and this bolstered our confidence in catering the international market. 2) Due to our goodwill in the international arena recently we were chosen to be the partners and provide our luxury scarves as a part of memento for the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
As we always desired to be an integrated organization, this sprouted to the idea of having a new unit 16 acre of size having all operations under one roof, starting from spinning, dyeing, weaving, finishing, printing, basically accomplishing the vision. We believe in Incremental improvement of all the business activities through people management, innovation & creativity. We also keep on exploring the new dimensions of business excellence & creating a holistic environment within organization. Our workforce has been one of the strengths of our organisation due to which today we possess the current status quo.

Vineet always had a keen interest in his father’s company, centex, which was established in 1969. Eager to learn about textile prepare, he began his career working on the factory floor. There, machine technicians and master weavers gave him a solid foundation, crucial to developing the business. With values inherited from his father, discipline, attention to detail and a keen eye for quality, vineet set about putting his own mark on the company. He began to create and experiment, not only with fabric construction and design, but also with machinery. He would modify and innovate to create unique, unrivaled products of the highest quality. This focus on the importance of innovation and experimentation remains the cornerstone of the company’s success to this day.
From vision to reality.
Demand for the product grew at an international level and soon centex began to export to europe and america. One of the first orders arrived in london’s marks and spencer’s flagship store in oxford street. The entire stock sold out within a few hours. This reinforced the company’s confidence for success in an international market.
Since then, centex has gone from strength to strength. The company exports to all corners of the globe supplying to many of the world’s leading brands with the capacity to prepare 300,000 units per month. Vineet’s vision to create one of the largest, state of the art scarf manufacturing factories in the world has recently become a reality. This illustrates what ambition, determination, passion and hard work can achieve.
Looking to the future.
