Shri Govindaraja Textiles Private Limited (SGT), part of the Aruppukottai, India-based Jayavilas Group, is investing more than US$ 40 million to set up a yarn manufacturing plant in the US state of North Carolina.
 
SGT, which produces 100% grey cotton ring spun and open end yarns for weaving and knitting and polyester cotton blended spin yarn and polyester viscose blend yarn, will create 84 jobs over the next two years in Eden city, Rockingham County, announced North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker.
 
“The company will not only buy North Carolina cotton, but will produce the combed yarn here as well,” said Secretary Decker in a press release.
 
“SGT has decided to set up a state-of-the-art yarn manufacturing facility in Eden after an extensive search and comparative study that we undertook amongst nine different states and various counties,” stated Ramkumar Varadarajan, managing director of SGT.
 
“The input cost advantage and the skilled workforce present in Eden will aid in our successful implementation and operation of the project,” he added.
 
The NC Department of Commerce’s Rural Infrastructure Authority Board awarded a $750,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to the City of Eden to assist SGT with up to 50 percent of building up fit costs. The company will locate in an 180,000-square-foot building at 335 Summit Road that was formerly owned by Karastan, Inc.
 
Welcoming the SGT’s decision to invest in Eden, the city’s Mayor Wayne Tuggle said, “Eden has a rich textile heritage and it is gratifying to see this company invest in our community and provide much-needed jobs.”
 
The Jayavilas Group is the largest spinner in India with a total installed capacity of 1.1 million spindles and has a workforce of 30,000 employees.
