More facilities at new unit

According to Todi, “The facilities at the new unit would include knitting and cutting, producing innerwear garments, end-to-end production facilities, warehousing facilities, quality control, and all logistics support, with a mix of imported and indigenous knitting machines and machines.”

“The main products planned in this unit shall be vests, briefs and cottswool with product mix, depending upon the overall market plan of the company in future. The garments will be marketed and distributed under the existing LUX brand, and thus strengthen overall volumes of the company,” Todi added.

The listing of the company on the exchange is expected to enhance the visibility for the company’s equity shares, and also provide liquidity for existing and prospective investors.
