The production facility is located in the rural area on the outskirts of the city of Tirupur where many workers live locally and can travel comfortably on foot or bicycle and the company is contributing to the community economy.

They invest in social programs for the employees, such as financing medical insurance, they're paying living wages to their workers which are higher than the minimum wages of the Industrial benchmark described by Indian Labour.
