Arvind Limited, which is on expansion mode, has launched its largest garmenting hub in Gujarat comprising three manufacturing facilities in Bavla near Ahmedabad.
While two facilities of the $1.7 billion textile-to-retail conglomerate have commissioned already, the third will start operations over the next few weeks.
Commenting on the development, Vijay Rupani, Chief Minister of Gujarat, said, “Setting up of the garmenting hub by Arvind is a progressive development for Gujarat. These facilities will help in creating employment opportunities for inclusive development of the state.”
He added: “The state government, through the new garment policy, aims to attract Rs 1 trillion in investment and create 1 million jobs in the next five years. Our government will continue to provide support for all initiatives towards fulfilment of this goal.”
The hub by Arvind Ltd will generate an additional revenue of Rs 10 billion and will provide employment to 12,000 people.
