After Duravit (Leading German sanitaryware manufacturer), comes ToTo (Toyo Toki) to Gujarat to start their Bathroom Ware manufacturing in Gujrat.
During the upcoming Vibrant Gujarat Summit 2011, Japanese manufacturer ToTo is planning to sign MoU to set up a plant here.
Gujarat has some good advantages for ceramic industry. Some of them are: availability of trained manpower, proximity of major sea ports (Mundra/Kandla), uninterrupted piped gas supply, availability of raw materials for ceramic industry.
There are big players like Asian Tiles, Somany tiles, H&R Johnson which are already supplying to premium markets like USA, UK, and Mainland Europe. These companies are also outsourcing most of their requirements from the manufacturers of Morbi.
If the ToTo successfully ventures here then we will see more international majors coming in this vibrant state and then Morbi will be counterpoint of ceramic industry of India.
