“We have succeeded in producing coveralls. We are basically meant to produce the garments for the armed forces but with the COVID-19 challenge that the country is facing, we have taken up this challenge under the guidance of Ordnance Factory Board,” said Surjit Das, the General Manager of -Ordnance Clothing Factory of Avadi.
He also elaborated on how the employees at the factory have been working tirelessly to ensure that the country does not face a shortage of PPE.

“We have succeeded in manufacturing the first batch. All our employees who are staying in different parts of Chennai, all of them have come to the factory despite the absence of public transport,” he said.
“The coveralls require a specialised way of stitching and sealing to ensure that the user doesn’t get infected. And they have given their best to learn to stitch a new garment and adopt it in minimum time,” Das further added.
