Sri Lanka's Brandix Group added a few more feathers to its cap, wining eight Presidential Export Awards at a ceremony in Colombo in what has been described as recognition at the highest level of the Group's contribution to country's export economy.

Brandix was recognised as the Sri Lankan Exporter of the Year in respect of 2012 and 2013, was adjudged the Best Exporter in the Apparel Sector in those two years, and was honoured with four Special Awards for being the Highest Net Foreign Exchange Earner and the Highest Employment Provider in the Export Industry in 2012 and 2013, it said in a press release.

The collection of awards presented to the Group by President Maithripala Sirisena and senior ministers of the Government on December 16, made Brandix one of the biggest winners across all sectors at this prestigious event, held after a lapse of several years. Organised by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB), this year's event recognised export performances in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

“Brandix has continued to invest in expanding operations, in new technology and innovation and in eco-friendly manufacture. As a result, the Group has consistently added value to its offering, and helped keep Sri Lanka's apparel industry competitive in the global arena,” Brandix CEO Ashroff Omar said.

“We are also delighted to note that of the eight Presidential Export Awards we won, six transcend the apparel sector, as they are in respect of the entire export industry,” Omar added.

The eight Presidential Export Awards presented to Brandix this year bring the Group's tally of accolades for export performance to 14. Brandix has been a consistent winner of these awards since 2003, when they were known as the National Awards for Export Excellence (NAEE). Brandix was first ranked as Sri Lanka's most outstanding exporter and best in the apparel sector by the Export Development Board in 2003. (SH)
