CCI Launches the COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ at ITMA 2023

12/06/2023 10:22 AM

An essential new measurement tool for spinning mills launches at ITMA 2023 on June 8th, that allows mills to evaluate their performance vis-à-vis others and definitively show the positive impact of U.S. cotton: the COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™.

"The benchmarking capability of this tool from Cotton Council International (CCI) has the potential to transform a mill’s performance," said CCI Executive Director Bruce Atherley. “The COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ shows how mills compare to their direct competition and how sourcing U.S. cotton ultimately increases productivity and provides higher yields. Visit Stand H2-A303 at ITMA 2023 today to meet our COTTON USA SOLUTIONS® team and learn more.”

The COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ (patent pending) anonymously collects data from participating spinning mills and gives performance measurements across five key cost drivers: material yield, machine productivity, labor productivity, efficiency management and energy management. Data security is a top priority, and anonymity is guaranteed.

The launch of this exclusive tool at ITMA 2023, the world’s largest international textile and garment technology exhibition, follows a successful pilot program of the COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ involving 47 mills across 13 countries. The pilots showed that U.S. cotton increased labor productivity and leads to better running conditions/less ends down, higher yield in combed and carded yarns, higher machine productivity and higher spindle speed.

The COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ is available on an invitation-only basis to spinning mills that are members of the U.S. Cotton Trust Protocol® and consume at least 10,000 bales of U.S. Upland and Supima cotton.

Interested in learning more about how the COTTON USA Mill Performance Index™ can improve your mill’s performance with U.S. cotton? Visit our COTTON USA SOLUTIONS® stand at ITMA 2023 or contact your local CCI representative via
