The Tri-Star apparel group has taken up a project under the Nagenahira Navodaya concept to set up a garment manufacturing unit in Thambalagamuwa in Trincomalee district. Giving out details, the Chairman of the Tri-Star group, Mr Kumar Dewapura, said that the new factory would be opened in the first week of July.

He added that the factory would provide employment to around 1,000 rural workers, of which 800 girls and women have already been provided training in stitching of apparels of high quality standards and that also meet international standards. This factory has been set up in an area which was formerly controlled by the Tamil Tigers.

Divulging details he said, “We have invested around US $2 million to set up this plant and it will be able to produce 100,000 pieces per month, mainly targeted for the US market and we are also planning further expansion at this factory and also hope to expand business in the Northern province as well in the near future”.

He continued by saying, “Despite the fact that, there is high risk involved in investing in new businesses these days due to the global economic crisis, We feel, this is the right time for all businessmen to invest especially in the Eastern and Northern provinces and in turn contribute to the development of the country,”

“With the dawn of peace in the country, overseas buyers are now willing to work with Sri Lankan manufacturers again, which will go a long way in creating more opportunities not only in the apparel industry, but across all sectors, due to which the next few years will be quite challenging”, he concluded by saying.
