World’s leading home textiles company Welspun India Limited was named amongst the most ‘Influential Innovators’ at the Clarivate South and South East Asia Innovation Award 2020.
The Mumbai-based company won the award in the corporation segment and was the only player from the textile industry.
The awards were based on an analysis of patent volume, citation volume, patent success, and globalisation level using patent data from Derwent World Patents Index™ (DWPI) and Derwent Patent Citations Index™ (DPCI).
It is worth mentioning here that Welspun India focuses on consumers’ needs and caters to them with innovations like Nanocore technology, which prevents dust mites and other allergens from entering home linens.
Additionally, the company introduced an industry-defining, multi-level traceability process Wel-Trak™ that tracks finished products back to the raw material as well as HygroCotton technology which traps the air in its core thereby making terry towels bloom after every wash and regulates a bedsheet’s temperature naturally.
Every year, Clarivate, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, hosts the Innovation Forum, which also brings together leaders from academic, government and industry sectors across the region to share best practices and transformational initiatives that accelerate the pace of innovation.
“Innovation is an integral part of the Welspun’s DNA and the foundation on which our customer-centric solutions are built. Our innovation-driven approach has helped us to challenge the status quo, set new industry benchmarks and build an industry leading portfolio of 30 innovations over the years,” said Dipali Goenka, JMD & CEO of the company.
She added “We are proud to be recognised amongst the most ‘Influential Innovator’ by an illustrious industry forum such as South and South East Asia Innovation Forum by Clarivate. The award is a testament to our efforts and motivates us to keep developing more relevant and innovative solutions for our customers.”
