Samrat Spinners Ltd (SSL) formerly known as Sree Satyam Spinning and Weaving Mills is a part of the Satyam group which also manages Satyam Computers. The company, in 1987, discontinued the production of cotton yarn and switched over to the production of synthetic yarn due to the grim situation that prevailed in the cotton yarn market. The company established itself in the synthetic market and also entered into the specialised field of high twist yarn. From Feb.'88, the company started exporting to European countries. It was awarded The Best Export Effort in the State award from the Government of Andhra Pradesh for 1988-89. In 1992, the company took up the production of acrylic yarn and grandrelle yarn, which was accepted well in the market. The company has also increased its captive generation capacity, whereby it can meet 100% power requirement. During the year 1999-2000, the operations of the company improved significantly due to establishement of higher quality standards and earned a cash profit of Rs.61.74 lakhs. Considering the advantages of exports, the company has also converted its unit into 100% E.O.U.
