Lumiere knitted fabric orders surpass expectations
May '13
Lumiere, Sri Lanka’s record setting knitted fabric manufacturing facility has achieved another rare feat within 6 months of commercial production.

This is by achieving an order intake in excess of US $ 1 million for the month of April.

The one building mill often tagged as ‘Hybrid Fabric Engine’ has expanded its product range rapidly after commencing operations with ‘lycra jersey’ production for briefs.

The company is already in bulk production of Single Jersey, Interlock and Rib fabric for briefs, bras (both moldable & non-moldable), vests, T shirts, babywear, etc.

Head of Marketing at Lumiere, Mr. Dharshaka Tillekeratne elaborating on this achievement explained that it is an endorsement of Lumiere ‘Strengths’ by the customers. Despite being a new operation the management staff of Lumiere is with an average industry experience of over 17 years. They are supported by state of art European machinery which are both energy efficient and with high accuracy resulting in top quality fabric.

Explaining further Mr. Tillekeratne pointed out that Lumiere has from the inception given an attentive ear to each and every customer request. All these requests were translated into results by the highly experienced and qualified staff at Lumiere.  This too had a significant impact on the sales achievement.

The initial customers who started business with Lumiere with only one type of fabric have now expanded business to more than 5 types in effect transferring 100% of their businesses to Lumiere. 

Certain customers have gone to the extent of reserving machinery at Lumiere exclusively for their orders while others have given order projections for the rest of the calendar year. All of this has ensured a growth in sales in the months to come.

Lumiere is in operation with the promise to be the trendsetter in knitted fabric production.  Already the company has made many breakthrough announcements including the support for production of small quantities, production of wider width fabric and fast lead time production.

The company in due course is planning to announce further exciting new possibilities in support of the garment industry in the country.  This no doubt will augur well for the growth of the industry in Sri Lanka.
