Export garment units in Erode district face paucity of tailors

Mar '07
Erode Textile Readymade Garments Exporters Association is planning to start a Common Facility Centre (CFC) in Erode to help readymade woven garment exporters.

Woven readymade garments worth Rs250 crore are exported from Erode every year.

Exporters here get orders worth about Rs1,000 crore annually but are unable to execute the orders due to unavailability of tailors here.

"Within two years, the readymade garment industry in Erode has made rapid developments and till 2004 we used to export readymade goods worth only Rs 100 crore. We now execute orders worth Rs 250 crore. But we cannot meet bulk orders owing to manpower shortage," said S. Sivanandhan, Secretary Erode Textile Readymade Garments Exporters Association.

The Association has made provision for free training in tailoring and garment industry-oriented programmes to unemployed men and women but after getting trained they leave Erode for better prospects.

Some readymade garment manufacturers get heavy orders but for want of enough machinery execution of orders gets delayed.

The CFC to be set up at a cost of Rs1.25 crore will help readymade garment manufacturers avoid delays.

Sivanandhan said as on date 3,000 tailors were required and many readymade garment manufacturers were now offering attractive salaries, provident fund, daily allowance and other facilities. Collector T. Udhaychandran has been requested to depute SHG members for tailoring training.

The Association will participate in the buyer-seller meet to be held in Tirupur in May.
