A Message to our Family

Sad passing of a Simba legend — Kirit Somaia

On Saturday the 10th of October 2020, we lost a founding member of Simba — and brother to Anil and Ashok — Kirit Somaia, to cancer.

Kirit Somaia was a founding member of Simba Textile Mills and a very respected man for those he touched. The passing of a legend, founding father of Simba and an amazing uncle and father.

Our chairman Hiten Somaia talks about his life and experience with Kirit.

During these trying times,
we are here to help.

For months now, Covid-19 has affected our lives. It continues to affect the lives of Victorians – even as the rest of Australia looks to open up. It continues to affect the lives of our customers in Australia, NZ, the Asia Pacific region and the USA – both directly, and indirectly. And it continues to affect the lives of our suppliers throughout China, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Our highest priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, our customers, our suppliers and all other key stakeholders.

For over 20 years, we have been building a robust supply chain to risk mitigate against local disruptions to supply due to economic, political, industrial turmoil or natural disasters. Pleasingly, our supply chain has stood strong during this pandemic, ensuring continued and on time supply to all customers, and including the delivery of PPE to the front line.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding — we're all in this together, stay safe.

Our priviledge is to partner with industry leaders to help transform their business.

Our Industries

We supply the best value commercial linen across a range of industries.

Commercial Laundries

Laundries across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore that partner with Simba know that they can rely on our robust, agile and proven supply chain to deliver when it counts. Our service to Commercial Laundries extends beyond providing our customers with the best value commercial linen.

Our innovative technologies help our customers shine a light on the usage of their stocks to reduce their operating costs. Simba SmartLinen RFID is a prime example. By deeply understanding what causes a commercial laundry pain, we can show them what stock they have, where it is located and how that laundry is using their stock. This leads to reductions in the amount of linen purchased annually, an increase in productivity, linen life and a significant reduction in loss of inventory.

Another innovation that is helping Commercial Laundries is our PolyCore Yarn Technology. These commercial grade towels are engineered to last up to 25% longer than standard commercial towels while never sacrificing comfort.

Mining and Remote Workplaces

As a trusted supply partner to some of Australia's largest commercial mining organisations, we understand the unique problems that are involved in supplying textiles to remote workplaces.

By listening to the linen management problems of our mining partners, we provide a truly functional textile solution; that has the housekeeping staff from Australia's largest remote workplaces raving about the quality of our textiles and their ease of use.

As a company that puts family first, we also understand the importance of designing bedding and linen that provides its workers with a much-needed home away from home.

Hospital and Aged Care Facilities

At Simba, we have always taken great pride in our history of supplying functional and reliable products for the Healthcare and Aged Care industries. As the exclusive supply partner to the majority of government Healthcare agencies, we understand more than anyone the complexities of supplying linen that performs commercially for our customers, whilst also focusing on the comfort and dignity of our customers end-user.

As industry leaders, we have a long and proud history of only partnering with suppliers who have full accreditations against modern slavery, providing their workers with fair and safe conditions, whilst also working with us towards a shared focus on sustainability throughout every step of the supply chain.

Through performance testing and textile engineering, we offer better performing and more sustainable products such as our Fibresmart™ range of bedding and our Reusable Healthcare Fabrics that deliver smarter solutions that reduce operating costs and the carbon impact of our customers. Our extensive range has been recently expanded to include superior quality healthcare textiles sourced from our partner Medline, the USA's largest Healthcare textile supplier.

In addition to this, we are working with key partners to build a more sustainable future through RFID tracking and data analysis. These data insights help to reduce linen stock and increase the utilisation and lifespan of linen for Hospitals and Aged Care facilities. We will continue to seek innovative new ways to deliver greater value for our customers and build a better, more sustainable world together.

Accommodation

Our long history of supplying hospitality textiles through the largest commercial laundries in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore has given us the opportunity to partner with the biggest names in hotels and resorts, as well as leading holiday parks and serviced apartments.

Our expertise in commercial textiles has earnt us a level of trust over 30 years by consistently delivering to our customers exacting brand standards. By listening to the housekeepers and procurement managers within the Accommodation industry, we have gained a unique insight into the demands of our linen.

This has helped us engineer new and innovative product solutions to the toughest of textile problems such as our Polycore™ Yarn Technology. Polycore™ produces a significantly stronger commercial towel that lasts up to 25% longer than standard commercial towels, without sacrificing feel or customer comfort.
