The consequential thrust in demand for yarn and fabric activities have accelerated the drive in Tirupur Knitwear Market.
KPR’s trendsetter welfare facilities and the dedicated employee’s participation increased the productivity even during the COVID period ensuring KPR’s outstanding ability and sustained competitiveness.
Proving its strong fundamentals and leadership, KPR mill company was able to withstand all hurdles during this tough situation by delivering great performance.
