Dubai-based textile company United Aryan plans to build a garment factory that could employ up to 10,000 workers at Olkaria geothermal fields in Naivasha town of Kenya’s Nakuru county to take advantage of lower electricity costs. The factory, likely to come up in the next two years, will manufacture apparel like trousers, knit tops, fleeces, shirts and robes.

The factory, which is likely to offer indirect employment to around 40,000 Kenyans, will manufacture products for sale in Kenya, the United States and Europe, according to company founder-chairman Pankaj Bedi.

United Aryan currently operates at Baba Dogo’s Balaji Export Processing Zone in Ruaraka, where it manufactures apparels for export, an African business daily reported.

Covering 20 acres, the factory will have six units with the capacity to produce and wash more than 100,000 pieces of attire daily. (DS)
