Kolkata-based Mini Club Exports is coming up with its new factory!
The childrenswear manufacturer, which currently makes 80,000 to 1,00,000 pieces per month, is planning to increase production by around 50 per cent – and to realise it, a new facility will be started.
To explore new machinery, Ronit Agarwal, Director, Mini Club Exports, also visited a technology event recently.
Ronit told Apparel Resources, “We strongly feel that only by doing volume orders, one can survive in the business today. There are no margins at all. We are bringing every process under one roof (stitching to value addition and finishing), so the expansion will cost us around Rs. 30 crore including land and machinery.”
Along with the domestic market, the company is also exporting its products to Middle East countries. Ronit sees more growth in organised Indian retail market compared to any segment. He added “We are also working with such value retailers and their orders are growing. We expect at least 25 per cent growth year-on year basis.”
“Like others, we face several challenges in business. Right from sampling to dispatch, garment industry is a big challenge in itself. Top management is now completely into problem solving or avoiding the problem by planning things well in advance,” concluded Ronit.
