All its factories are approved by its customers thus giving it an advantage and creating an entry barrier for newer players to enter this business. Most of the garments are exported to America since America is the biggest market available, it gives enough scale to company to expand the operations and grow comfortably. PGIL has minimal amount of Debt and has a good working capital cycle which shows that it has operational efficiency.

In house product development and design:
PGIL has a dedicated in-house design team of 75 designers located in Hong Kong, India and Indonesia. This team on a regular basis shops in markets all over the world and visits all the globally renowned fashion and textile fairs to collect design ideas. They are well-equipped to serve the global brands from concept boards to customers. New design ideas are generated from marketing team which is positioned in Hong Kong, London, USA and Germany as they are close to the actual buyers. Focus has been on creating brand specific product designs to generate and accelerate business opportunities for the global brands and retailers.

Capacity Expansion:
PGIL is undergoing capacity expansion in South India for a total investment of around Rs. 20-27 crore, funded through internal accruals and a TUFS (Technology upgradation Fund Scheme) loan. The new facilities are expected to be instrumental in helping the company raise its cumulative production capacity by about 7% to 4.09 million pieces/month, through the addition of 1300 machines to reach a total of 9800 machines spread across India, Bangladesh and Indonesia. PGIL plans to install 500 new machines in Bangalore, adding 180000 garment pieces per month. At Chennai, PGIL is installing additional capacity of 800 new machines, which has got commissioned in December 2015. PGIL has taken a 60000 sq. ft. facility in Peenya, Bangalore, on long term lease, while in Chennai it has acquired a contiguous land parcel measuring 4.72 acres, on which it has built a facility to manufacture an additional 200000 pieces a month.

Geographical shift:
With South India fast emerging as the new garment manufacturing hub of India, the proposed capacity expansion is expected to help PGIL to reduce its geographic concentration risk by diversifying operations across North and South India. Another significant reason to move south is to gain a competitive edge to meet complex and diverse product design requirements of leading global retailers. The Southern marketplace known for certain fabrics and skilled and disciplined labor, higher output, lower wage cost, low attrition levels, low rejection and special expertise in wovens, will provide good operational flexibility.
