Sri Lankan Army-run apparel units to be upgraded

Jun '12
Ranaviru Apparel industries at Alawwa and Yakkala, run by disabled personnel of the Sri Lankan Army, will be upgraded to international standards under a new modernization programme, which includes raising the quality of the apparel products.
 
In early 2010, the world-wide accepted 5S practice was introduced at Yakkala Ranaviru Apparels in order to improve standards, productivity and efficiency.
 
The very next year, the apparel unit successfully received the “5S Excellence Special Award” in recognition of its efficient manufacturing strategies.
 
The apparel units at Yakkala and Alawwa together produce around 80 percent of Army uniform requirements, and the management of the factories is now striving to increase the output to meet the Army’s 100 percent uniform requirement by raising its production and quality standards.
 
The management is also considering possibilities of making uniform sets for the Air Force and the Navy, in addition to the Army, in future.
 
More than 460 differently-abled soldiers at Yakkala garment making unit produce an average of 1000 uniform sets each day.
 
The Ranaviru Apparels at Alawwa produces around 600 uniform sets per day. Moreover, the factory is currently in the process of manufacturing 100,000 folding mattresses for the Army.
