Faisalabad Garments City (FGC) is likely to start operation from January end next year.

Recently, Dr Mirza Ikhtiar Baig, Federal Advisor on Textile Industry visited FGC, and was quite pleased with the rapid and smooth development and its completion of the project before time.

According to Dr Baig, this is the most prestigious project of Textile Ministry that will give the required fillip to the garment exports of the region.

While speaking exclusively, Mr Mukhtar Ahmad Sheikh, Chairman, FGC Company told Fibre2fashion.com, “This project is divided into four phase. The building covers a total of 400,000 square feet area. In the building there is a basement plus five floors. Three floors are already ready. Available carpet / working area would be 36,000 square feet, which is divided into two parts.”

He further informed that there will be facilities for water, gas, electricity. They will be giving rent and lease to different companies. They just have to bring their machinery and can start their business. Even in the complex there would be 80 feet wide road.

Faisalabad Garment City Company has been acquired in Faisalabad Industrial Estate Development & Management Company (FIEDMC). The FGC Project will have a capacity of over 12,000 stitching machines. A large number of workers employed in these factories would be women and youth.
