The Green Plant of Brandix, Sri Lanka's largest apparel exporter, recently hosted two reigning beauty queens on a familiarization visit.

Miss Netherlands Melissa Sneekes and Miss Sri Lanka Maria Colombage toured the three eco-friendly manufacturing facilities that make up the Brandix Casualwear complex at Seeduwa and were briefed on the remarkable savings it had achieved in energy and water consumption and the reduction of carbon emissions by 80 per cent, through a redesign of the building and the installation of eco-friendly air-conditioning.

Commenting on what she saw, Ms Sneekes said: “Concern for the environment is very high in Europe, and I am most impressed by the efforts made by Brandix in Sri Lanka to switch to Green Manufacturing.

The Brandix Green Plant at Seeduwa was an eye-opener for me. Besides being one of the most eco-friendly apparel factories in the world, it also provides a very comfortable working environment.”

“It is very pleasing to see that garments reaching stores in Europe come from such well-designed and environment-friendly manufacturing locations. Congratulations, Brandix.”

Ms Colombage added: “There can be no better example of Sri Lanka's commitment to environment-friendly manufacturing than the Brandix Green Plant at Seeduwa.

The commitment and effort that has gone into creating a showpiece of clean manufacturing is truly commendable. Sri Lanka can be proud of facilities such as this, which demonstrate that we can be world leaders in eco-friendly apparel manufacture.”

The 130,000 square-foot Brandix Casualwear factory at Seeduwa is the Group's lead manufacturing plant for top international retailer Marks & Spencer (M&S), and surpasses internationally-stipulated Green factory standards for energy consumption, water conservation, solid waste management and carbon emissions.

The pioneer of the concept of inspired solutions for branded clothing, Brandix is a preferred solutions provider to some of the world's best brands, including Gap, Marks & Spencer, Victoria's Secret, NEXT, Lands End, Ann Taylor, Abercrombie & Fitch and Tommy Hilfiger.

The Group specializes in casual bottoms, intimate and active wear, textiles, knitted fabrics, sewing and embroidery thread, accessories and hangers and also offers wet processing and finishing and fabric printing.
