Perfect Sourcing - - India News -

Hand­looms and Tex­tiles Sec­re­tary I. Srini­vas Srinaresh an­nounced that the State gov­ern­ment had iden­ti­fied Visakhapatnam as a po­ten­tial zone for tech­ni­cal tex­tiles with spe­cial em­pha­sis on med­i­cal tex­tiles due to ware­hous­ing and port fa­cil­i­ties. Med­i­cal tex­tiles are tex­tiles used in hy­giene, health and pri­vate care as well as sur­gi­cal end use. These are ob­tain­able in wo­ven, knit­ted and non-wo­ven struc­ture based on the area of ap­pli­ca­tion. Med­i­cal tech­ni­cal seg­ment in­cludes tex­tile prod­ucts for hy­giene, hos­pi­tals, per­sonal care and sur­gi­cal ap­pli­ca­tions. Prod­ucts like di­a­pers, san­i­tary nap­kins, dis­pos­ables, con­tact lenses and ar­ti­fi­cial im­plants come un­der this. Srinaresh said once med­i­cal tex­tiles were pro­moted in a big way in Visakhapatnam, it would give scope for in­vest­ment in an­cil­lary units. .
