Commenting on the performance, Madhu Sudhan Bhageria, Chairman & Managing Director, Filatex India said, “As the standard of living improves, demand for man-made fibers will see a boost globally and locally. In India, as we move away from an agrarian economy, natural fibers are becoming expensive and more difficult to grow due to paucity of arable land. Synthetic Fibers are gradually replacing them as they offer similar quality and properties at much affordable cost. At Filatex, we are preparing for this boom by manufacturing top quality and cost-effective yarns. We are expanding capacity to meet growing domestic needs along with our already flourishing exports business. We are also exploring technology for manufacturing value added fabrics which are currently being imported.”
