Once fully operational, the Rs 300 crore project in Dahegam will employ more than 10,000 people and produce over 24 million garments annually.
“Gujarat has always been a leader in textile manufacturing. The Gujarat apparel policy will have a far-reaching impact on helping the state forward integrate into apparel manufacturing and develop vertical solutions for global brands. This progressive policy from the Gujarat government will go a long way in making Gujarat a hub for the end-to-end textile and apparel value chain,” said Punit Lalbhai, executive director of Arvind.
“We plan to commence commercial production in the fourth quarter of 2018 and we plan to create 10,000 jobs, a majority of which will be women. We are excited to support the Gujarat Apparel policy whose aim is to create 1,00,000 jobs in Gujarat. We are confident that with such a conducive policy Gujarat will emerge as a major destination for garmenting,” said Kulin Lalbhai, also executive director of Arvind.
Arvind is one of the largest manufacturers and exporters of textiles products with a turnover of nearly $1.5 billion in FY 2016-17. The company’s own brands include Flying Machine, Unlimited among others, while its licensed product brands include big global names, such as Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Arrow, Gant, Nautica, IZOD, US Polo Assn, Hanes, Sephora, The Children’s Place and Gap, and Aeropostale to name a few.
