The investment by SV Pittie Textiles is the largest single investment in the U.S. cotton yard sector. 

SV Pittie Textiles, a leading India-based textile manufacturer, is making the largest single investment in the U.S. cotton yard sector, according to Vinod Pittie, chairman of Shrivallabh Pittie Group.

The group announced plans on July 7  for a $70 million factory near Sylvania.

Construction is expected to begin this year, with 250 jobs phased in over the next four years.

“We believe there is a significant market opportunity for yarn manufacturing in Georgia due to a skilled local workforce, proximity to high-quality cotton fiber, the economical supply and reliability of power and world-class infrastructure to international markets,” Pittie said at the groundbreaking ceremony.

The company will manufacture a range of different counts of carded cotton yarn.

Founded in 1898, Shrivallabh Pittie Group has a substantial presence in the Indian textile sector, operating in 13 locations.

The company will also take advantage of the services of Georgia Quick Start, a state program that will provide the company with free, customized workforce training and development.
