To achieve its aim of supporting textile value chain partners across the country with design development and technical support, Aditya Birla Group, the world's largest viscose staple fibre (VSF) maker, is organising a conclave in Coimbatore. With this initiative, the company wants to help propel the country to be the world's top cloth manufacturing hub.
As part of the national drive, called Liva Accredited Partner Forum (LAPF), aimed at improving the entire gamut of the textile value-chain, Birla Cellulose -- the pulp and fibre division of Grasim will organise another such conclave in New Delhi followed by this Coimbatore event being held tomorrow.
The conclave is expected to witness a gathering of over 200 value-chain partners, including spinners, fabricators and processors. The company has also decided to partner with Mumbai-based Netcarrots to implement a customer relationship marketing programme for the stakeholders assembling in Coimbatore. The company has also tied up with Bombay Textile Research Association to undertake quality improvement programmes and stringent audits for the partners.
The LAPF programme already has around 250 members, including spinners, weavers, knitters and fabricators, with major participation from textile hubs such as Tirupur, Erode, Ludhiana, New Delhi, Kolkata, Surat and Bhiwandi near Mumbai, among others.
