Clothing cooperation in India

IndiaElectrotek is a leading manufacturer of antistatic clothing in India. The company’s unit in Bengaluru manufactures garments solely for the needs of Lindström’s customers. As a result of the partnership with Lindström, the Bengaluru unit has grown from a unit of 22 to a production plant employing 140 people. 

“We mainly employ women, and for us it is a matter of honour to be able to offer enough work to secure their workplaces and livelihoods. We want our employees to produce high-quality products, which I believe will only happen through their wellbeing at work. We are currently in the process of expanding our production facilities, paying attention to the wellbeing of staff in the design,” explains T.K. Shankar, Director of Electrotek. 

“We meet our contact persons at Lindström a few times a month for one or two days at a time to go through products, work methods and premises,” says Shankar. “Together we develop our operations to correspond to Lindström’s requirements as far as both corporate responsibility and product quality is concerned. Sometimes the targets are challenging, but our abilities and desire to develop are trusted.” 

“Electrotek is a typical Indian clothing manufacturer for Lindström. The supplier was selected according to strict criteria, and operations are monitored through close collaboration and regular audits,” shares Sourcing Director Kristiina Tiilikainen. “We are also glad to be  involved in the development projects of our suppliers, such as the expansion of Electrotek’s production facilities. We examined the plans together a year ago, and I just visited the plant to ensure the plans are being carried out as agreed,” notes Tiilikainen.
