US-based Mila Fashion, part of the Design Studio Group, recently signed an agreement with the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka for opening an apparel manufacturing plant in Welioya. The group employs over 2,000 in Pandulagama in Anuradhapura and Etawa in Kurunegala, and the new venture with $3-million investment will create an additional 1,200 jobs.

The project, staggered across two phases, will deploy state-of-the-art machinery, automation and technology, according to Sri Lankan media reports.

Since its inception in 2009, the group has established itself as a supplier of choice for high street retailers in the United Kingdom and Europe, including Primark, ASDA, Sainsbury’s, ASOS, Next and River Island, from its network of factories in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
