Silk city to auto city
Oragadam is an industrial cluster on the outskirts of Chennai. Located in Kancheepuram district, aka Silk City, Oragadam and Sriperumbudur have emerged the largest automobile electronic hardware manufacturing and exporting hub of India.

Many Fortune 500 companies have set up manufacturing facilities in the belt and many more companies are entering. SIPCOT provides land with rich infrastructure and facilities get upgraded continuously.  The Tamil Nadu government has set up a skill development centre in collaboration with Oragadam SIPCOT Manufacturers Association (OSMA).

The government is building the Rs. 300 crore Oragadam Industrial Corridor Road, which is expected to give a further thrust to industrial activity in the Oragadam-Sriperumbudur region.  Residential activity has also picked up. With the proposed green field airport and good connectivity to city and workspots nearby, people prefer to move here.

Tamil Nadu has been at the forefront of attracting investments by providing single window processing, quick clearances, rich infrastructure and creating a favourable ecosystem for industry. The facelift of Oragadam Industry zone in a short span has set an excellent example of growth-orientation and commitment to industrialise.
