27 - Textured Jersey
Textured Jersey entered the Business Today rankings for the first time and is the first company from the apparel industry to so.
It is indeed our pleasure and honour as Textured Jersey to be named amongst the glitterati of the industry and indeed the country. A few years ago we set ourselves some bold aspirations and I was fortunate that we had a team of very dynamic and ambitious people who felt that the sky is the limit to what they could dream. This resulted in a high speed kind of journey where we from a rank of 50, within three years, became one the 20 most valuable companies in the country.
We felt that we could put a brand from the apparel and fabric industry in Sri Lanka on the global map. With that in mind we recently re-launched our company under the brand TeeJay. And we are optimistic that over the next few years we can make this something that Sri Lankans all across could be proud of. We thank BT Options for this recognition because, hot on the heels of being recognised by Forbes as one of the Top 200 companies in Asia under a billion dollars, this award only serves to inspire the team further and to create a fantastic fabric, which supports the amazing apparel industry that we are privileged to have. Thank you to all our customers and partners for the support. And of course my thanks to a fantastic team who are the bedrock on which we do this day in and day out.
