US-based sleep and intimate apparel company Komar recently opened an innovation centre at Sri Lanka’s Star Garments, which it acquired in January 2016. US ambassador to Sri Lanka Atul Keshap and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe attended the inauguration. The Star Garments Group operates seven manufacturing facilities with a staff of over 6,500.
The company converted an existing factory into an innovation centre, which hosts a library, sample room, pattern-making facilities and design capabilities, according to Sri Lankan media reports.
“American companies bring the best and highest standards of ethics, of design, of innovation, of technology, of responsible management, and absolutely cutting edge environmental responsibility,” said Keshap. (DS)
