Teejay Lanka, Sri Lanka's largest textile manufacturer, has been honoured for industrial excellence at the recent Achiever Awards by the Ceylon National Chambers of Industries (CNCI). The company bagged the silver award at national level in the extra large category of the manufacturing sector, besides securing a place among the top 10 corporates.

These awards underline Teejay’s standing as one of Sri Lanka’s leading manufacturing entities, and acknowledge continual achievements and contributions to its sector and the national economy. The recent expansion of Teejay India, leading to doubling of production capacity in India and increasing the overall manufacturing capacity of the group to $210 million, and the company’s initiatives in lean manufacturing contributed towards winning these accolades. 

One of Sri Lanka's largest textile manufacturers, Teejay supplies fabric to some of the best international brands across the world. Teejay Lanka is a public quoted company with 39 per cent public ownership. The company is backed by Sri Lanka’s largest apparel exporter, Brandix Lanka which has a 33 per cent stake and Pacific Textiles of Hong Kong which owns 28 per cent of the company.

Teejay’s Quality Circle Award presented by Sri Lanka Association for the Advancement of Quality and Productivity; being bestowed the Compliance Certificate at JASTECA Awards 2017 and being recognised at the Taiki Akimoto 5S Awards Competition 2017 were also contributory factors, the company said in a press release.

"We are delighted that progressing from the Bronze award last year to the Silver this year reflects our continuing journey of excellence. Teejay has established its dedication to not just being a renowned knit fabric solutions provider, but also an innovative and ever-evolving manufacturing brand focused on quality, being socially responsible and highly efficient," Teejay Lanka deputy CEO Pubudu De Silva said.

The CNCI Achiever of Industrial Excellence Awards were presented after a close scrutiny of multiple areas including turnover, value addition, productivity, employment statistics and welfare of employees, statutory responsibility, corporate planning, research and development, quality assurance, environment responsibility, social responsibility, and industrial and occupational health and safety measures.

This was the 17th consecutive year in which CNCI, a pioneer industry chamber in the country, has organised an award ceremony of this nature. The award winners were selected by a panel of reputed judges and were widely regarded as a benchmark of industrial excellence. (RR)
