Power loom cluster planned in Surat

A state-of-the-art textile processing and power loom weaving cluster is coming up in Gujarat, near Surat. It’s planned on 50 lakh sq. mt. of coastal land. However, allotment is awaited. The cluster is for those who want to produce fabric in bulk quantities. Barring a few big process houses and weaving units, most factories produce fabric in smaller volumes. But importers prefer suppliers who produce goods in bulk quantity.

The textile processing units will be connected with a common boiler system thereby discouraging the use of chimneys emitting pollution. There will be wind power and solar power generation, common drainage, CETP plant, tertiary treatment plant etc.

The plan is to have only processing and weaving at the cluster, and also garment units. So investors from Trichy, the garmenting hub, who are looking for expansion will be invited to explore prospects and opportunities.

If everything goes well, textile processing and power loom weaving units in Surat would be induced to shift to the planned cluster. The project has been planned by the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the South Gujarat Textile Processors' Association.

Meanwhile, around 50 textile processing houses in China are willing to set up units in Surat. A delegation will soon visit China to explore possibilities.
