Industrial areas in Kochi
Kochi is one of the fastest growing second-tier metros in the country and is now home to several industrial parks. With the advent of the industrial parks and increasing urbanisation during the last 10 years , there has been a boom in the construction and real estate business.
The industrial parks have state-of-the art facilities to cater effectively to the needs of various industry verticals such as IT, tourism, engineering, garment production, food processing, rubber production etc.
The parks based on IT and ITES services are the ones that have seen the most success and Kochi has been named by NASSCOM as the second most attractive city in India for IT-based services.
The presence of big names like BPCL- Kochi Refinery (earlier known as Kochi Refineries Ltd (KRL)), the Cochin Shipyard Limited, Fertilizer and Chemicals Travancore Ltd.(FACT), Hindustan Organic Chemicals (HOC) and Cominco Binani have contributed greatly to Kochi’s status as the industrial capital of Kerala.
