Rosaiah to open Brandix Apparel City on Feb. 5

Project to be inaugurated in Vizag will be a boon to cotton and textile industry

Chief Minister also scheduled to lay stone for Coastal Ferro Alloy Unit at Atchutapuram

BIAC venture proposes to provide employment to 25,000 people

HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K. Rosaiah will inaugurate the Brandix India Apparel City (BIAC) at Atchutapuram in Visakhapatnam on February 5.

During a hectic schedule to the port city on February 5 before leaving for New Delhi, the Chief Minister will also lay the foundation stone for Coastal Ferro Alloy Unit in AP Special Economic Zone at Atchutapuram.

In an interaction with senior officials on Sunday after his return from Tirupati, Mr. Rosaiah said that he was sure Brandix project would be a boon to the cotton and textile industry.

He was informed by the officials that BIAC was a 1,000 acre integrated textile and apparel park with all financial and other associated activities, about 50 km. from Visakhapatnam.

Brandix Lanka, which is Sri Lanka’s largest integrated apparel exporter conceived BIAC and manages it. Other global apparel partners from US, Mauritius and UK support the venture. The venture proposes to provide employment for 25,000 people.
Industrialisation drive

A press release from the Chief Minister’s office said, the State Government would go in for a major industrialisation drive with the twin objectives of rapid economic growth and creating significant employment potential. A major programme in this direction with close coordination of top investors, industrialists, Government of India, CII, FICCI and other private players is on the anvil. The new industrial policy will also be revamped to suit this objective and drive of the State Government, the Chief Minister said.

Mr Rosaiah was told that Brandix’s business model encompassed vertical integration and specialisation in key product categories in both ‘woven and knit’ apparel. To achieve its vision, BIAC has created a vertically integrated apparel value chain and to shore up its smooth operation, centralised infrastructure along with common services and facilities were provided at the Park.

Four more units coming up at Brandix apparel park
:cheers:
Our Bureau

Visakhapatnam, July 8

Four more units are being set up in the Brandix apparel park near Atchyuthapuram in Visakhapatnam district by the end of the current financial year, according to Mr Vinu Sudan, Director of Brandix Apparel City.:banana:

He told reporters here on Thursday that at present four units were functioning in the park and 5,100 were employed in the units. The number of jobs would double after the completion of the four units. “More importantly, rural women are getting employed in the units. Their skills are getting upgraded. There is a distinct change for the better in their life style,” he said.
:cheers:
He said Brandix had so far invested Rs 200 crore on building up infrastructure in the park and the four functioning units. “The four units under construction are investing roughly Rs. 400 crore and the total investment by the end of the current fiscal would be Rs 800-850 crore," he explained.
:cheers:
In response to a question whether the progress was slow and when the promised 60,000 jobs would be generated in the park, Mr Sudan said 30 units may come up in the next five years in the park, and 60,000 jobs would be a reality by then. “Considering the global recession and the fact that an apparel park had to be built here from the scratch, our progress has been quite remarkable. No other park has achieved the same pace,” he claimed.

He said the State Government had leased Brandix 1,000 acres for the park, of which 250 acres was the non-processing area. Of the rest, 600 acres was set apart for units and the remaining area was used for roads and other requirements.

Mr. Sudan said the Brandix park had been accorded the SEZ status.

VISAKHAPATNAM: After a dry spell of nearly six years, Brandix India Apparel City (BIAC), a special economic zone (SEZ) for apparel manufacturing set up by Sri Lankan apparel major Brandix Lanka Ltd on the outskirts of the Port City, is all set to draw its 'biggest' investment ever from Chinese textile major BROS.

It is learnt that the company is mulling an investment of around Rs 500 crore for setting up a plant spread over nearly 100 acres at BIAC.

In April this year, a Chinese delegation led by the secretary general of the China Chamber of Commerce for Import & Export of Textiles, along with senior officials of leading Chinese apparel and textile manufacturers, had visited the Brandix SEZ. While Brandix officials refused to comment, state government officials confirmed that a big Chinese investment for BIAC was indeed in the works."We are in advanced stage of talks with BROS. The company is evaluating the opportunities offered by the Brandix SEZ and is also examining the policies of the government relating to cotton import and exports. The company already imports Indian cotton and is keen to have its base in India to process the raw materials here, for which they have chosen BIAC. The company will make 'substantial' investments and it will be a big boost for the state and the SEZ as well," Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) managing director Jayesh Ranjan said.

The Chinese investment is expected to come as a booster shot for the Brandix apparel park that had been languishing for want of investments. and has even been facing the prospect of a part of its 1,000 acres land being denotified for domestic production as it had failed to draw the requisite investments in export units, sources said.

At the time of setting up shop, BIAC had committed to the state government that its apparel park would employ around 60,000 people and bring in investments worth $1 billion. However, because of bleak conditions in the textile sector, BIAC has neither been able to provide employment nor bring in investments as assured in the memorandum of understanding (MoU) inked with the Andhra Pradesh government.

According to information available on the BIAC website, though the SEZ has a capacity to house 30-32 units, there are only 13 units, of which three units belong to Brandix Apparel India. The other operational units, according to the BIAC website, include UK-based Quantum Clothing, Hong Kong-based Pioneer Elastics and Vardhman Yarns & Threads Ltd.

BROS produces mid-to-high level melange yarn, which is produced by the combination of at least two or more fibers, and its products are used by global brands such as GAP, Old Navy, Esprit, Polo, JC Penney, Nautica and Burberry.
