Ocean India laid the foundation stone for the construction of its state-of-the-art knit fabric manufacturing unit at Brandix India Apparel City [BIAC] in Visakhapatnam.

Ocean India is a joint venture partnership between Fountain Set [Holdings] Limited [Hong Kong], one of the world's largest knit fabric manufacturers, Brandix Lanka and Hirdramani Group.

Fountain Set [Holdings] are recognized in the industry as a global player supplying to over 40 countries to internationally renowned brands and has long been a driving force in the global market through its vertically integrated operations.

This new venture with its world-class manufacturing unit will not only serve the needs of apparel manufacturing units in BIAC, but will also cater to India.

The 75-acre facility, situated within the 1000-acre Brandix Apparel City in the Special Economic Zone [SEZ] in Visakhapatnam, is projected to be one of the largest textile-manufacturing units in the region. The unit is expected to be ready for commercial production by the second quarter of 2008.
