Dott. Sandro Veronesi, President of Calzedonia Spa, an Italian company has formally opened this factory on 7th October.

Hon. Dr. Sarath Amunugama, Minister of Enterprise Development and Investment Promotion was the Chief Guest at the factory opening ceremony.

The investment of this project totals Rs.1.75 Billion and employment generated is 2,000. Hence Benji Ltd will play an important role in creating new opportunities for the people of Bingiriya.
