Javeed Matin

The management team is headed up Javeed Matin, who parlayed his experience in the trade finance business to acquiring a mill in the Southern U.S. that was ready to go under. In 1996, Matin purchased the looms and installed them in an ancient mill in Comilla, Bangladesh, where Velvet Textile Mills would first fly its flag. Three years later, Matin funded the growth of Velvet Textile through a reverse merger into a publicly trading shell in 1999.

In 2004, Matin and Veltex again went trolling for acquisitions, picking up KCA Garment near the end of the year. KCA's facilities employ 900 workers, churning out about $29-million worth of products during 2004 (all figures in U.S. dollars unless specified otherwise), a figure expected to rise by 20% during 2005.
