Kitex Garments Limited, a Kerala based company, has decided to set up an apparel manufacturing unit at Gopalpur in Ganjam district in Odisha at an investment of Rs 177 crore.
According to officials, the project will create employment opportunities for over 5,000 people, with a majority of them being women.
The proposal came through Odishas Single Window for Investor Facilitation and Tracking (GO-SWIFT) portal.
Last month, Kitex decided to increase its production capacity by more than 3.5 times to meet increasing demand.
Sabu M Jacob, chairman and managing director, Kitex Garments, said, “Currently, we are producing six lakh pieces of finished garments per day for ‘just-borns’ and babies up to 24 months.”
He added: “We have now decided to increase the garment production capacity to 22 lakh pieces per day by 2025.”
