Kerala has cleared the decks for an apparel park in Angamaly with the Government's Industries Department giving in principle approval for the Rs 11-crore project, a leading newspaper has reported.

The proposed 40,000-sq. ft. facility will comprise a design factory with advanced facilities. It will also have space for individual units with 50 to 75 workers as well as a training institute, said Gracy Thomas, Managing Director of the Angamaly-based Mahila Apparels Garments Cluster.

According to the project report, 10 per cent of the cost will be borne by Mahila Apparels Cluster while the Kerala Government will bear the rest of the cost.

The facility is expected to boost business at the garments cluster up to 300 per cent. At present there are 73 units working out of the garments cluster, which has a turnover of Rs. 1.25 crore annually. Each of the units has an average worker strength of 10 to 15.

The garments cluster now directly exports shirts to Oman. Once the park is established, production of shirts is expected to go up to 500 per day from the current 200 pieces per day, said Ms. Thomas.

The launch of the garments cluster in 2007 has given a big impetus to the garments business in an around Angamaly with the cluster members sourcing large stocks of raw materials from places like Ahmedabad, Surat and Mumbai and supplying them to the garments units. Bulk purchase has helped reduce the cost of the raw materials. (SH)
