A new type of textiles for Indian textile workers
An Indian textile factory has announced plans to open a new textile export and textile milling facility, bringing production of textile garments to India by 2020.
The plant, called Kerry Joyce Textiles, will produce textiles in both cotton and wool and will employ 200 people, the company said in a statement.
The textile export factory is the second such venture by Kerry Joyce Textiles after it opened a factory in Kolkata in the southern Indian city of Kochi in 2017.
Kerry Joyces is a textile manufacturer based in Mumbai, India, which makes garments for global brands including Adidas, Bottega Veneta and Uniqlo.
The company’s website says the factory will employ approximately 150 people and employ 1,000 employees in the coming year.
The new textile factory will be built at a former textile mill site on the outskirts of Kochipuram in the Indian state of Maharashtra.
The site was formerly owned by the Indian Railways and now houses the KerryJoyce Textile Co. It is the latest project to emerge from the booming textile industry in India.
