A couple of Ginning and Spinning mills as well as traditional Batch-process Bleaching Unit provide job-work service to support the activities of core cluster enterprises. A network of traders in the region are involved in supply of inputs and marketing of output to other regions, like Pali and Balotra and Surat (usually) for value-addition before marketing of end-products.
