House of Pearl acquires Gurgaon-based Texport Fashions

Apparel company House of Pearl Fashions Limited has acquired textile exports firm Texport Fashions, for just above $1 mn. Texport will exclusively handle orders from departmental store chain JC Penny of the US. House of Pearls is also looking to acquire another facility in Bangladesh.

The new Gurgaon-based facility will also be used by the House of Pearl for servicing its international clients. It has recently received an order of $8-10 mn from JC Penny and the entire production at the newly acquired unit would be used to meet this demand. House of Pearl has concentrated on the woven segment till now but the acquisition of the Gurgaon facility would help it establish a stronghold in the knits segment as well and would also contribute $15 mn to the company.

With regards to the unit at Bangladesh, where House of Pearls already has a presence, the company may run the facility with a joint venture partner with the details to be worked out in a month's time.
