KOCHI: In the wake of increasing number of applications seeking facilities to set up units at its Industrial Park in Koratty, Thrissur, the Kerala Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Kinfra) is set to build a new complex at the park.
Industries Minister A C Moideen will lay the foundation stone for the new building complex on Monday.
The complex, which will cover 70,402 sq ft, is being built for Rs 28 crore. It can accommodate 20 industrial units. The companies that will operate at the complex following its completion are jointly expected to 1,000 people directly and 5,000 people indirectly.
“Around 30 industrial units are already functioning in the 30-acre expanse of the park. Together, the companies employ 1,200 people. There was investment of Rs 69.61 crore, too. The park has ample electricity supply and efficient rainwater harvesting facility. Statutory clearances to set up industrial units at the park are being provided via single-window facility,” said Kinfra officers.
