Two of the facilities of MAS Holdings, Sri Lanka’s ace garment manufacturer that has 53 facilities in over 16 countries employing 98,000 staff, is now the first from the country to bag awards at Global Chemical Leasing Awards in Vienna last month.
The awards recognize case studies and novelties in chemical leasing and promotes the application of innovative business models and innovations in sustainability.
The garment maker’s facilities bagged Gold in Special Innovation (Noyon Lanka) and Bronze in Case Studies (MAS Active Linea Intimo).
