Common facilities for GDMA members on its way

Feb '08
The Gujarat Dyestuff Manufacturers' Association (GDMA) is all there to ensure that its members can easily export their chemical products to the European Union in accordance with the Regulation, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) norms.

For this very purpose, GDMA has proposed to set up a common facilities for its members at an estimated cost of Rs30 crore.
The development will include installation of ultramodern quality control laboratory, common spray drying facilities and upgradation of existing effluent treatment plant.

Mr Manish Kiri, Honorary Secretary for GDMA, told Fibre2fashion about the reasons behind bringing up these developments, “We have around 960 members, all of them are from manufacturing industry, and looking at the trait we have found that this step would help our members from small and medium scale to cope with the current scenario. Depending on the success of this common facility in Ahmedabad, we will implement the same in rest of the region.”

Mr Kiri also stated, “We have approached the Central Government for subsidy which will even encourage public-private partnership. Once the fund is secured, quality control laboratory would take around 6-8 months and other common facilities will take at the most 2 years time to get started.”

Furthermore, the association is also planning to form a cluster mechanism for its members for making it comparatively easy and reasonable to get registered with REACH regulation in the EU.

Talking about other measures taken by GDMA, Mr Manish asserted, “From time to time, we arrange seminars, training programs and even industrial tours for our members. A delegation will soon be visiting China to help improve its trade relations with the country.”

The GDMA is also keen to continue its exports to EU and has therefore projected to open an office in UK to take care of its member exporters and importers.
