A hub for minor readymade manufacturing units, Manaparai based in Tamil Nadu may soon get a textile park that would give a potential platform for small power loom manufacturers to promote their products in both domestic and international markets. With road and rail connectivity, a textile park there would greatly help employment generation.
At a four-day buyer seller meet, the Tiruchirapalli District Tiny and Small Scale Industries Association (TIDITSSIA) pitched for the textile park in the area. The event has an exhibition featuring 23 stalls that would likely benefit the small scale manufacturers to find suitable buyers and establish their brand name.
Around 25 acres of land in Mondipatti village near Manapparai has been identified for the textile park., Manapparai is an ideal location for a textile park since the quantity of minor readymade manufacturing units and even exporters are highest among the district. TIDITSSIA wants the Powerloom Development and Export Promotion Council (PDEXCIL) to help small power loom manufacturers and promote textile industries in Tiruchy district. According to the Council, Tiruchy functions as a textile sector hub for the adjoining districts including Ariyalur, Perambalur and Pudukkottai.
