Managing Director Welspun Global Brands Ltd
What are those steps that you have undertaken to safeguard the green belt?
We carry out plantation on regular basis in our plants and in neighbouring villages, such as rain water harvesting system in Anjar plant. In Anjar, a total of 800 million rain water was harvested in year 2010 and 1100 million litre of rain water was harvested in year 2011. New rain water infrastructure is commissioned time to time to harvest maximum rain water.
What are your further expansion plans in domestic and international markets?
We are looking at expanding slowly in both markets. We are seeing a glut in capacities in the bath segment. Bedding segment is also seeing some increase in capacities. Internationally, we are focused on growing in non-US markets.
Moreover, where do you see export market is faring globally?
It is difficult to predict how the trends will pan out but we are watching the market very closely.
How do you see the future of home textiles as many international players are vying over the growing regions?
Like any business, there will be a growth and then a period of consolidation. The players who have a strong business model and can differentiation as well as also evolve with time will survive. However, the market remains huge, hence, immediately, we see this market being able to accommodate the number of players it currently has.
