In 2012, SILA was asked to propose a solution to maintain a few of Alok Industries’ manufacturing units in Silvassa. Focus was to implement an efficient solution and upgrade the maintenance levels at their factories. After SILA’s success case at Alok Industries, we have grown to service other companies in the Textile Industry across Gujarat, Maharashtra & Karnataka – Bhilosa Industries, The Creative Group, Sanathan Textiles, Color Lines to name a few.
