Welspun unveils India's largest spinning facility

Dec '14
Welspun India Limited (WIL), part of the US$ 3 billion Welspun Group, has unveiled its new spinning facility at Anjar in Gujarat, which is India’s largest spinning facility under one roof.
 
The new, world-class facility was inaugurated by Gujarat chief minister Anandiben Patel and Union Minister of Textiles Santosh Kumar Gangwar at Welspun City, a 2,500 acre township set up in the heart of Anjar town.
 
The expansion project reflects the ethos of the Government of Gujarat’s recent ‘Farm-Factory-Fabric-Fashion-Foreign’ Textile Policy, which is aimed at strengthening the entire textile value-chain, WIL said in a statement.
 
The new facility will be instrumental in doubling WIL’s spinning capacity to over 3,00,000 spindles, thereby fulfilling nearly 70 per cent of the company’s internal yarn requirements. It will also decrease WIL’s dependency on external sourcing.
 
With the opening of the new facility, WIL is envisaging more emphasis on better quality and increased profitability, which in turn will help consolidate its leadership position in the global home textiles industry.
 
“This expansion of our Anjar plant is a major milestone that represents our long-term commitment to the Indian economy and the Central Government’s ‘Make In India’ vision. Our core competencies of quality and innovation will get further strengthened through increased self-sufficiency, better quality control and an efficient supply chain that will enable us to take the next leap forward. We are very grateful to the State Government of Gujarat for extending their proactive support as we expand our operations,” said Balkrishna Goenka, Chairman, Welspun Group.
 
On the occasion, a book celebrating women’s empowerment and women achievers was also launched. The book is a compilation of real life stories of women that represent the myriad hues and fabric of the Kutch region. The book summarizes how Welspun has played a crucial role in their empowerment by providing them a sustainable livelihood, thereby enhancing their social stature both within their own families as well as in society at large.  
 
WIL is among the top three home textile manufacturers in the world and the largest home textile company in Asia. With a distribution network in more than 50 countries and manufacturing facilities in India, it is the largest exporter of home textile products from India. Supplier to 14 of top 30 global retailers, the company has marquee clients like Wal-Mart, JC Penney, Target and Macy’s to name a few. (RKS)
