Located in the south-western part of Chennai, Padalam houses one of our two manufacturing units. The Padalam facility has a GSV audit score of 92% and is a LEED Gold certified unit. With more than 1,200 employees, Padalam contributes over 65% to our total annual production of 2.2 million garments. The unit has two production floors with an in-house testing lab and printing unit with the latest addition of a 32,000 square feet automated warehouse along with a green treatment facility for waste management and an STP plant.
Located in a Chennai neighbourhood, our Perungudi unit has a Grade-A BSCI & WCA audit with an in house machine embroidery unit. Just like our Padalam unit, the Perungudi unit is also equipped with a green treatment facility for waste management along with an STP plant. With over 800 employees contributing about 35% to Evolv’s annual production the unit mainly handles the production of shirts & tops.
Evolv is defined by its people. Our dedicated, eclectic, passionate culture is driven by professionals, with a mission to evolve with the changing world.
Our corporate office houses an atelier unit for developments with dedicated design & merchandising teams which are responsible for all the research and development activities. Our Atelier unit is backed up by a sample production set-up with a total monthly capacity of 5,000 units.
Our manufacturing units have a common in-house testing lab and are supported by facilities for garment processing. After we assess each item’s potential risks during the design stage, before starting the production, we take samples for analysis and testing in the laboratories for a detailed study of the results, establishing whether the items meet our standards and are good to pass on to the next phase of quality checks.

Evolv has recently added a new state of the art warehouse to it’s facility with an area of 32,000 square feet in accordance with C-TPAT norms. Managed through forklift assisted 4D racking system and SAP integrated stock maintenance, the warehouse also follows FIFO methods for optimal valuation of raw material and inventory tracking.

"Evolv’s workforce embracing over 80% of women employees celebrates diversity and women empowerment."
A commitment to increasing the representation of women in the industry has been a vital part of the company’s operations. For employee welfare, Evolv added a Creche and a subsidized food canteen for employee convenience. In support of future generations, we started working with the locals in need: to train students in hands-on apparel design and manufacturing methodologies. This attention to next generation development is an integral part of our people development policy.
