Made in Telangana apparel will be available for export across the globe within the next six months. Youngone, a Korean manufacturer of clothing, is setting up factories in Kakatiya Mega Textile Park (KMTP) which will be operational in six months. Youngone Chairman and Chief Executive Ki-Hak Sung, in a video conference with Industries Minister KT Rama Rao and Rural Development Minister E Dayakar Rao recently, reiterated their plans to make five of their factories functional in six months and take up three more lately in phase-2 of the Kakatiya textile park.
“Made in Telangana textiles will be rolled out from Warangal’s Kakatiya Mega Textile Park after six months,” Ki-hak Sung informed Rama Rao. Though Youngone factories were supposed to be ready in early 2021, there was some delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Warangal would be the base for Youngone’s operations in the country, Sung told the Minister. Rama Rao stated that Youngone Corp operating from Warangal should be seen as a milestone for the Indian textile industry.
