Georgian textile firm Tiflis Textile has opened a new sock knitting facility in Tbilisi, the country’s capital. The constriction of the 2 mn euro plant, which has included the installation of a bank of the latest Lonati sock knitting machines, is part of the ‘Produce in Georgia’ programme. This involves the distribution of government grants and infrastructure support, both which are aimed at building up the country’s burgeoning textile industry.
