The earnings of WIL, a part of the US$ 3.5 billion Welspun Group, have also surged from Rs. 4.246 billion during the fourth quarter of last fiscal to Rs. 6.938 billion during the period under review.

Mr. Rajesh Mandawewala, Managing Director of WIL, said the textile industry in India is showing an upward trend and WIL being one of the major home textile players in the world has performed very well during the quarter.

He informed that various measures were taken to consolidate WIL's manufacturing operations during 2011-12.

He revealed that Welspun Global Brands Limited (WGBL) is being merged into WIL to deliver superior quality products and services to customers.

Post-merger, production and marketing business of both firms would come under single umbrella of WIL, while the name of Welspun Retail would be changed to Welspun Global Brands.

WIL is today one of the top three home textile manufacturers in the world. Its business is spread across the globe with a distribution network in over 32 countries including the US, the UK, Europe, Canada and Australia with more than 90 percent of its total production being exported.
