The employment is expected to be increased to 2500 at capacity. The new factory will be set up on a 10 acre land owned by the Mahaweli Authority of Sri Lanka which was handed over to Brandix.

Brandix will also invest US $ 25 million over the next four years to place the country on the world map as a location for environmental best practice said Chief Executive Officer, Brandix, Ashroff Omar. Over the next four years the Brandix Group will invest US $ 25 million on introducing environment friendly features to their factories.
