Tuticorin port is on the south-eastern coast adjoining the Gulf of Mannar in Tuticorin district, about 600 km south of Chennai.It enjoys a unique advantage by its strategic location close to the East -West international sea route,barely 125 nautical miles from it.It is the first Indian port to receive ISO 9002 Certification.Tuticorin Port offers round the clock service.The Port records a throughput of 1,03,000 TEUS per annum with an average growth rate of about 10 % per annum

SALT manufacturers in Tuticorin are hoping for support on infrastructure and concessions from Government levies - as available to other industries - to face competition. There is nothing common about salt, it would seem, listening to the uses that common salt can be put to. Apart from serving to add taste to food, it is an important raw material for a range of chemicals and Tuticorin is a major production centre, accounting for about 25 per cent of India's production.

SIPCOT has rendered fruitful services to the state by identifying, developing, maintaining industrial areas in backward and most backward talukas of the State, which had potential to grow. Establish, develop, maintain and manage industrial complexes, parks and growth centres at various places across the State of Tamil Nadu. Provide escort services to medium and large scale industries.

SIPCOT's role in assisting the industrialization in the State is not only quantitative but also qualitative. Instead of just accelerating the pace of industrial growth in already developed and densely populated areas, SIPCOT, as a nodal agency, strives to ensure that disbursal of financial incentives result in spurt of industrial growth in backward and hitherto under developed areas. To ensure a good impact with available limited resources SIPCOT has created industrial complexes, parks, growth centres in various strategically located places, which occupy a place of pride in Tamil Nadu's industrial map.
