A pioneer of technology in India

HK Magu, Former Chairman, AEPC said, “A couple of years back ago, we had neither the facility to upgrade our machines nor required quality standards. GTE is one of the pioneers of technology in India.

More investments needed

Smaller countries like Cambodia and Vietnam are doing a great job in terms of technological advances. A single factory in these countries can produce over a lakh bra cups and panties a day. “We too need to provide more investments and other infrastructural facilities to set up such factories in India,” added Magu.
