As part of its expansion strategy, Arvind Ltd, the $1.7 billion textile-to-retail conglomerate, on Tuesday announced the launch of its largest garment hub in Gujarat with two manufacturing facilities commencing operations at Bavla near Ahmedabad. These manufacturing facilities, set up with an investment of ₹350 crore, will strengthen Arvind’s position in the global textiles and garment market as an integrated fibre to fashion provider and solutions provider to global retailers and brands, it said. These facilities will add a capacity of 3 million garments per month and generate additional revenues of ₹1,000 crore. These facilities are expected to employ 12,000 people as operations reach optimal capacity and many more ancillary jobs are expected to be created around these large-scale facilities, the company said in its statement.
