ITF to set up plug and play stitching units in TN

Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu

The Indian Texpreneurs Federation (ITF) has appealed the small and medium apparel and home textiles sector to expand by setting up plug and play garment stitching facilities in small towns.

Giving a five-point suggestion for growth of the textile sector in the state, ITF convenor Prabhu Damodharan and board member Saravanan, who met the ministers, said the state could work out a roadmap to capitalize on the opportunity emerging with MITRA park scheme by creating an integrated plug and play apparel park to build scale, competitiveness and enable the medium sized companies to expand.

 ITF said in a memorandum to textiles minister R Gandhi and industries minister Thangam Thennarasu, that they can pick 10 to 15 small towns with good workforce availability and create small plug and play infra for stitching facilities. This will spread the sector in various parts of the state, avoid overcrowding in a few clusters and create new employment.

Underlining the need to devise a special theme to brand the textile and apparel sector in the state, ITF said that such a branding would also help the sector capture the market share in value-added products.
