As Surat is a hub for textile industries any exhibition related to textile industries is always a grand success for exhibitors as well as visitors. Moreover thanks to SGCCI for managing an excellent exhibition pavilion with easy access and enough parking facility. So for response is concerned, it was reasonably good, according to Mr. Hansrajbhai A. Gondalia, Director of Aalidhra Group of Industries.

 Mr. Gondalia did not see any new innovation at SITEX 2022. He said: “Covid has definitely impacted all industries. In our case, we could maintain profit, employees, and operation with no growth within years 2020 & 2021.”

 “Volume-wise Indian textile industry is quite small compared to China’s and hence value-added fabrics, garments, and yarn manufacture are a better option for Indian textile industries. Accordingly, jacquard weaving has a good future in days to come,” Mr. Gondalia opined.

 Talking about his company, Mr. Gondalia said that Aalidhra is dedicated to developing, manufacturing, and market high-tech machines on its own research & development. “Our R&D department is sharing approximately 20% of profit every year. Aalidhra is only a principal manufacturer in India for many types of machinery for textile.”

 Mr. Gondalia was all praise for the labor force in India, saying that “labor force available to owners of textile industries holds excellent intelligence & hardworking natures. So let us utilize our natural gift and adhere to innovation, committed to quality and performance.”
