Things are moving fast following the decision of Indian garment manufacturer International Stitches to backward integrate into fabric processing. At retail level, the company, with its head office in Tirupur, has just launched its Groggy brand for the 16-24-year-olds market in India, and also acquired the licence to produce clothing featuring characters from the global cartoon hit 'The Simpsons.'

At the same time, it has formed a new subsidiary, Indian Color Care, a newly-built plant at the Sipcot Industrial Growth Centre in Perundurai, some 50km east of Coimbatore.

Indian Color Care is equipped with the very latest, state-of-the art European processing machinery, including the first Monforts Interknit line in India.

The company began trading as International Trading Inc., a government-recognised export house and the Indian office of the Canadian Trio Group, to which it still has links.

“But we soon realised there was no future in simply outsourcing and saw opportunities to expand into garment making,” explained President, Mr Vishal Kumar.

The Indian Stitches garment making-up plant in Tirupur now houses some 400 sewing machines, along with automatic printing and embroidery machines, cutting and slitting and CAD-CAM design stations.

As solely a garment maker, however, the company has recently become frustrated with its lack of control over certain parameters.
