More recently we have looked further a field for offshore partnerships to link with our customers who have garments made in the Far East.
In Sri Lanka we have linked up with a large manufacturing firm, who have a vertical plant with 400,000mts a week capacity. Over the past 2 years we have produced over 4 million metres for the sportswear market.
They are experts in knitting cotton and cotton blends, together with Polar fleece and more recently with our assistance they have moved into synthetic sportswear. We currently have a large sportswear programme with them.
We are the first company
on the island to offer 28gg double jersey polyester fabrics.
There are 20 machines installed that are 50% owned by Cloverbrook.
We also own a transfer printing machine on the same site, and are
in continual discussion concerning further investments.
