The Hyderabad facility is a part of the large-scale expansion plan of Gokaldas Exports of growing from the current 24 mn garments annually to 26 mn in 2007 and 30 mn in 2008. The support of the Andhra Pradesh government and the availability of cheap and skilled labor in Hyderabad have been the prime reasons for Gokaldas to put up a facility here. “As we enter the new and more aggressive growth phase it becomes imperative for us to scale up our production capacity and we were looking at multiple locations for setting up our new units." said Mr. Rajendra Hinduja, Director, Gokaldas Exports. "The pro-activeness of the Andhra Government and its industry-friendly measures clinched the decision in favor of Hyderabad.
