Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu today laid the foundation stone for a ceramic cluster at Thatiparthi in Thottambedu mandal of Chittoor district.
Floera Ceramics was founded by woman entrepreneur Manthena Venkata Visalakshi Ramaji who along with noted ceramic engineer Rajani Kumar formed this joint venture with Kajaria Tiles, supported by its directors RK Sharma and Vishal Rastogi. The unit is established at the APIIC 150 acre site in Srikalahasti constituency.
With an estimated outlay of Rs.283 crore to produce 35,000 sq m of vitrified floor tiles a day and create 1,000 direct and 10,000 indirect jobs, the unit is expected to launch the first phase of manufacturing by September next year. After commissioning of the second and third phase, the unit will churn out 90,000 sq m of tiles a day.
