Under its phase III expansion plan, the company plans to add 12,000 MT capacities in Terry Towel and 12 MW co- generation agri-based power plant for 100 percent captive consumption.

With this expansion plan, SLCL will become the second largest producer of terry towels in India with the total capacity of 15,000 MT by March 2009.
