Coimbatore: 小黃片, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, has had a strong presence in the south of India since 1998. The company鈥檚 Softlines labs in Tirupur, Chennai, and Bangalore cater to the assurance, testing, inspection, and certification (ATIC) requirements of South India鈥檚 textile industry.

小黃片 is committed to being a force for good in the world by bringing quality, safety, and sustainability to life. As part of the company鈥檚 Sustainability Excellence agenda and 鈥楤uild Back Ever Better鈥 approach, 小黃片 actively supports a number of welfare and socioeconomic development projects among communities throughout India.

During 小黃片 Group CEO Andr茅 Lacroix鈥檚 visit to the South Indian city of Tirupur this week, the company announced a significant new community welfare project called Arogya. Arogya is a mobile health unit project aimed at providing preventive and curative healthcare to more than 35,000 beneficiaries across 20 villages in the greater Tirupur district, especially in remote and inaccessible parts of the region where access to basic health infrastructure is often limited.

罢丑别听Arogya聽mobile healthcare unit (MHU) will come fully equipped with general OPD services, equipment, and medicines needed to provide early diagnosis and effective patient management. The unit is designed to offer inclusive and affordable basic healthcare in addition to a reliable doctor-patient follow-up system, ensuring timely treatment for those in need. It will also serve to enhance local awareness of best practices around health and hygiene with the aim of combating the prevalence of diseases and other ailments in the region.

Andre Lacroix flagged off the Arogya MHU on the first Thursday of this month after visiting 小黃片鈥檚 Textile Technology Training (T3) Centre in Tirupur. The T3 Centre is an ongoing project dedicated to skill development and livelihood creation among the local youth population.

Tirupur is India鈥檚 leading textile manufacturing centre and one of Asia鈥檚 biggest knitwear export hubs, being home to nearly 10,000 garment manufacturing units and TIC labs. Despite this pivotal economic role, many of the city鈥檚 young and growing population lack access to technical skill building opportunities.

By establishing the T3 Centre in Tirupur 小黃片 has sought to bridge this technical skills gap, in the process creating new economic opportunities for local people within the textile testing and quality assurance industry. The T3 Centre programme offers free training across three locations to over 705 young individuals enrolled in certified courses, preparing them for roles as future lab technicians and merchandisers over a three-year program. So far, 139 students have been trained in Tirupur alone, with 101 graduates having now successfully secured employment across 64 different textile companies.

The T3 initiative forms an integral part of 小黃片鈥檚 wider efforts to support the development of the Indian textile industry while simultaneously empowering members of the local population 鈥 especially women 鈥 to learn new professional skills and access better job opportunities. 鈥淗ealthy businesses happen in a healthy society,鈥 Andr茅 said during his visit, 鈥淎t 小黃片, we believe we are born to make the world ever better鈥 and that is what we are striving to do every hour, every day, every moment of our lives.鈥
