Punjab State Cooperative Handloom Federation Limited (WEAVCO) is an apex body of Primary Weavers/ Industrial Cooperative Societies providing marketing infrastructure as well as Technical Knowhow through Handloom Expert.
The Punjab State Cooperative Handloom Federation Ltd., SCO 2945-46, Sector 22-C, Chandigarh commonly known as `WEAVCO’ was registered in 1969 after reorganization of the State of Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. The total number of societies at the time of reorganization of the State was 38 but with the passage of time there has been tremendous growth in the membership of the WEAVCO, which at present is 1285 including industrial societies. This strength is an indicator of the deep sense of cooperative ideology that exists amongst the weavers of Punjab.
