In recognition of its contribution to the Sri Lankan economy, Brandix was awarded 'Exporter of the Year' at the 23rd Presidential Export Awards 2018-19, presided over by President Maithripala Sirisena. The coveted top award for the highest contributor to the national economy across all categories of exports, was among six awards presented to the company.
The other awards bagged by Brandix were ‘Globally Operated Highest Foreign Exchange Earner’, ‘Net Foreign Exchange Earner’, ‘Employment Provider in the Export Industry’, ‘Contributor from the Regions to the Export Supply Chain’ and ‘Best Exporter Award - Apparel Sector’.
“As we humbly accept the recognition bestowed to our company by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board (EDB), we acknowledge the vision and drive of a legacy, Martin Trust, who was instrumental in transforming the Sri Lankan apparel industry and Brandix to become what it is today. Our progressive journey stems from his extraordinary mentorship and guidance, while our continued strength and success lies in the passion and dedicated efforts of our 60,000+ family of inspired people,” said chief executive officer of Brandix, Ashroff Omar.
This year marks the sixth ‘Exporter of the Year’ award for Brandix. As reinforced through its corporate DNA, Brandix continues to inspire and establish a sense of purpose in its people through its values of respect, integrity, teamwork and excellence. The company also remains true to its commitments towards the planet, as demonstrated through its sustainability journey and the most recent milestone of achieving the world’s first ‘Net Zero Carbon’ status for its manufacturing facility in Batticaloa.
On a journey to deliver Inspired Solutions at every point of its operations, Brandix continues to develop, manufacture and market end-to-end apparel solutions to world-renowned brands, whilst inspiring sustainable development in the communities it operates in.
The Presidential Export Awards organised by the EDB is the highest form of recognition for top performing exporters with outstanding contributions towards national development.
