Welspun India forays into flooring solutions
Dec '16
Welspun India Ltd, one of the world’s leading home textiles companies, has forayed into flooring solutions with the foundation stone laying of Rs 600 crore state-of-the-art facility in Anjar, Gujarat to manufacture carpets, area rugs and carpet tiles. The new facility will have an annual capacity of approximately seven million square metres.
The upcoming facility will house one of the most modern plants in the country. Most of the capital expenditure will be done over the next 18 months, the company said. The new project ushers in a new chapter of Welspun’s growth story by adding flooring solutions to its current portfolio of home textile products. It also strengthens Welspun’s commitment in enhancing employment opportunities in Kutch region by creating more than 7,000 direct and indirect jobs.
“I applaud Welspun Group for reinforcing its commitment to ‘Make in India’ with this new carpet project. I appreciate Welspun’s commitment to Gujarat for creating employment opportunities in the state and contributing to its overall economic development,” said Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani after laying the foundation stone for the new carpet facility.
Speaking at the ceremony, BK Goenka, chairman, Welspun Group, said, “Flooring solutions has immense potential as a growing business. We believe that this segment will benefit from the synergies with our existing product line and customer base thereby creating strong growth opportunity for the domestic as well as international market. The investment represents our ongoing pursuit of expansion and is a testimony of our strength as one of the leading manufacturers globally.”
Welspun has also inaugurated a first-of-its-kind facility to treat 30 MLD waste water at Welspun City in Anjar. The facility will recycle and treat the waste water generated in Anjar and Gandhidham-Adipur. Welspun will reuse the water obtained after Biological treatment, Ultra Filtration & RO processes for its production activities. This will reduce the company’s dependency on the Narmada River resulting in increase of fresh water availability for the communities for domestic use. 
“With the inauguration of our waste water treatment plant, we are hoping to set an example for the industry by preserving a scarce resource like water for the communities around our manufacturing facilities,” said Goenka. (RKS)
