Balkrishan Goenka, Chairman, Welspun Group, said, “Our investment of INR 2,000 crores not only paves the way for Welspun One to expand into the growing warehousing and logistics market but also significantly demonstrates our ongoing dedication to the Indian economy. This industry is going through a major transformation as more emerging sectors and other businesses create increasing demand. This association will boost our fundamental goal of developing cutting-edge facilities of the greatest calibre and aid us in taking the next leap forward. We are really appreciative of the Karnataka government’s proactive support as we grow our operations.”

The state of Karnataka has shown its support by committing to assist Welspun One Logistics Parks with relevant registrations, necessary permissions, approvals and clearances as per prevailing policies from the concerned departments of the state. This will assure the smooth running of the operations undertaken by the company. To help Karnataka’s logistics industry flourish, WOLP in turn, will effectively supply leading, best-in-class warehouse facilities.
