Haribabu lauds Brandix
The district BJP team led by local MP- Dr. Kambhampati Haribabu, MLA Mr. Vishnu Kumar Raju, rural district president Ms. Thota Vijaya Lakshmi, and other BJP party members visited Brandix India Apparel City (BIAC) located at Atchutapuram near Visakhapatnam and were impressed that around 18,000 workforce largely comprising women was employed at a single location.
Terming it as an accomplishment that is exclusive to Visakhapatnam and the only one of its kind in the entire country, they held in high esteem the Brandix Management for doing so and also for implementing various welfare measures such as subsidized nutritious food, maternity care, health care and baby care centre.
Addressing the women workforce, Mr. K Haribabu laid special emphasis on anaemia being one of the major health issues being faced by women.
To address the issue and to convert women workforce at Brandix into a robust and healthy workforce, he suggested them to adopt a nutritious practice of including jaggery and carrot juice in their daily diet. He recommended Brandix Management to introduce the same in the employee canteen that was immediately accepted and implemented by the Brandix Management.
On the land issues of the company. Mr. Haribabu assured full support in addressing them. Taking cognizance of the issues owing to absence of air cargo facility and inadequate shipping infrastructure/facilities at Visakhapatnam, he promised to take it up with the Central and State Governments in ensuring logistic convenience to Brandix.
Mr. Vishnu Kumar Raju appreciated the facilities and excellent work in the textile sector. He complimented Brandix as the ‘Pride of Andhra Pradesh’.
Chief Operating Officer Mr. Ragupathy, and Indian Partner of Brandix Mr. Dorai Swamy, accompanied the delegation.
