The company has redeployed Alok Industries' manufacturing facilities in Silvassa, Gujarat for exclusively manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE) to safeguard doctors, nurses, medical staff and other frontline workers engaged in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic
Capacity has been scaled up to produce more than 1 lakh PPE kits per day and cost has been slashed to nearly Rs 650 per unit from the about Rs 2,000 apiece imported price. The facility can also be used for exporting PPE in the future.
Reliance has integrated technology, raw material from its petchem plants and 10,000 tailors after re-engineering the plant. The production started in mid-April and has been quickly ramped up to now constitute close to a fifth of India's daily PPE production capacity.
