"I always had faith in the local market and have a passion to build our own brand to hit the local and the international market", Chairman/ CEO Thread Works (Pvt) Ltd Gehan De Soysa said at the factory opening ceremony at Lakshapathiya, Moratuwa last week.

The factory was opened with an investment exceeding Rs. 75 million. Thread Works continue to be a manufacturer, retailer and a distributor, providing employment opportunities to many Sri Lankans and expects to generate more opportunities in the future.

It caters mainly to local needs while exporting (around 5 percent) to international markets while Ghana, Australia and the Maldives being their top buyers. Since its official acquisition of the renowned brand Velona in 2008, Thread Works has continued to recreate Velona with a modern outlook refreshing the minds of Sri Lankans of the decades-old Velona brand together with its popular brands Body Fit, Top Gear, Superknit, Arista and upcoming latest Velona cuddles.

The company is a leader in the apparel industry through its diversified portfolio of products ranging from men's underwear, lady's petty coats to children's wear and nappies. "We are a company with high moral standards and take the best effort to fulfill our social responsibility.

We are more interested in volume growth than in value growth", he said. Currently the company produces half a million pieces per month and hopes to increase production further. The success story behind Thread Works is their ever continuing effort to provide quality garments at an affordable price. In the months to come the company will launch its newest product, a baby diaper which would revolutionise the Sri Lankan diaper market.
