Reputed fabric producer receives WRAP certificate
Aug '10
For complying with the 12 WRAP principles, South Asia Textiles Industries Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. (SATL), one of the largest fabric producers in Sri Lanka, , has recently been presented with the prestigious Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) certification.

WRAP which mainly concentrates on the apparel, footwear and sewn industries is a social compliance programme, as also the largest facility certification programme the world over. Depending on their level of compliance with the 12 WRAP principles, facilities are granted with a certification for a duration ranging between six months to one year.

These WRAP principles emanate from the international workplace standards, domestic laws and workplace regulations which include human resources management, health and safety measures, environmental standards and legal compliance including those related with import-exports and customs compliance and security standards.

SATL was established by Singapore's South Asia Textiles in April 2004. The company with a 15 million dollar funding from the Board of Investment was set up on the 76 acre land of the formerly State-owned Pugoda Textile Mills in Pugoda, Sri Lanka.

The company produces weft knitted fabrics and even does knitting, dyeing, finishing, printing, brushing and sueding of fabrics for the domestic and global markets. Also, the company in its high-tech factory with modern production technology employs around 650 persons.

Presently, the company has a capacity to produce one and a half million lbs of knitted fabric per month. It also has a garment washing plant.

SALT also holds the Oeko-Tex Class one certification, which is given for compliance with the EU regulations for using Azo-Free dyes and not using forbidden substances and chemicals.

The company also, due to its highly modernized working and constant compliance of global quality standards, has been certified by and is a supplier chosen by Tesco, NEXT, M&S, Bhs, Billabong, GAP, Old Navy, Reebok, Adidas, Disney, Reebok, JC Penney and many others others.
