AP mandates govt organizations to purchase uniforms from APCO

Dec '08
Andhra Pradesh State Handloom Weavers' Cooperative Society Ltd., popularly called APCO was set up to protect the interest of handloom weavers in the state. It was set up basically to extend marketing support to its affiliated Primary Cooperative Weavers' Societies registered under the cooperative fold in the State.

It is providing direct employment to hundreds of thousands of weavers and indirect employment to many other people in the state. But as each and every handloom cluster or cooperative is going through a tough period, so is APCO. The Andhra Pradesh government has now made it mandatory for all A.P state government organizations to purchase their uniform needs from APCO.

This was announced by the Vice-Chairman and Managing Director of APCO, Mr Kishore Babu. He also urged the common man to purchase APCO textiles and in the process help hundreds of thousands of workers from distress. He also added by saying that the 12,200 handloom units under the body would be supplied yarn at discounted rates with immediate effect.
