Alok Industries is one of the largest fully integrated textile companies in the world with a dominant presence in the cotton and polyester segments. Alok has the largest textile manufacturing practice in India. Alok Industries have their manufacturing facilities spread across the country, focused in Gujarat and Navi Mumbai. SILA was awarded the contract for Facility Management – initially soft services.
SILA services their corporate offices in Mumbai and parts of its 550 Acre manufacturing campus in Silvassa, Gujarat. The Silvassa campus includes manufacturing plants, a school, and a residential township development called Alok City.
SILA began providing soft services at Alok’s H&A (apparel brand) corporate office in Ashford Towers, Mumbai, in 2011. In 2012, SILA took over the management of the company’s corporate headquarters in Peninsula Corporate Park, Mumbai. Alok Industries appointed SILA to manage their soft services of premium manufacturing hub at their Silvassa Campus in May 2012. This was SILA’s first industrial project, the focus being primarily on soft services and plant/machinery upkeep.
SILA was able create value at Alok’s corporate offices and at their manufacturing facilities. At the corporate offices, SILA was able to bring about a noticeable difference in the quality of housekeeping services. We ensured that the client was provided with a well-trained team that implemented efficient processes and procedures. At the industrial facilities, the focus was to shift from the reliance on manpower to using more machines. We re-engineered the entire cleaning process at the Alok’s manufacturing plants. This resulted in lower reliance on manpower and an enormous improvement the quality of upkeep at the plants.
