Textile and apparel group Raymond has renewed its contract with men's wear retailer Konaka and sourcing and manufacturing firm Lims International.

The renewal follows the successful completion of the original two-year deal, which has seen Raymond's plant Silver Spark Apparel producing half-canvas men's suits to Konaka.

Raymond will supply up to 150,000 suits a year as part of the agreement.

"With the support of partners such as Konaka, we will forge ahead into the global arena," said Gautam Singhania, CMD, Raymond.

"If we are to work with an Indian company, we cannot think of any company other than Raymond" said Kensuke Konaka, president of Konaka.

Raymond has three garment-making plants in Bangalore, India as well as a design studio in Milan, Italy.
