Orient Craft Limited, a 40-year-old apparels manufacturer based in Gurugram, recently started operations at a new garments factory it has set up in Irba, about 25km from Ranchi. The factory, inaugurated last week in the presence of chief minister Raghubar Das and union textiles minister Smriti Irani, is Jharkhand’s first garments manufacturing unit.

The Irba unit has 225 knitting machines with full facility to train, manufacture, finish and pack. It has an optimum capacity of 2 lakh garment pieces a month and employs 900 workers, all trained in the unit.

The company eyes a turnover of Rs 50 crore in the first year of operation before its mega unit in Hotwar in the same state with cumulative employee strength of over 10,000 turns operational by the end of March 2018, according to Indian media reports.

Company chairman and managing director Sudhir Dhingra expects around 3 Lakh new jobs in the garments sector in the state in two to three years.

Orient Craft supplies a wide range of garments, home furnishings and knitwear to brands across the world, including GAP, Polo, Marks & Spencer, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Debenhams, Zara Home, Armani and Hugo Boss. (DS)
