Nike, Uniqlo Vendor in Sri Lanka Gaining From China Slowdown

  • PVH, parent of Tommy Hilfiger, is Teejay Lanka’s top customer
  • Company benefits as production shifts from China due to Covid

Knit fabric manufacturer Teejay Lanka Plc, whose customers include Nike and Uniqlo, is seeing demand pick up as production shifts from China because of Covid lock downs in that country.

The company, which produces about 45 tonnes (1.6 million ounces) of fabric a day in Sri Lanka and an equal amount at its Visakhapatnam, India, facility, plans to scale up operations in the neighboring country by next month, Director Hasitha Premaratne said in a phone interview.
