Wilkins Group to open $3m Sri Lanka factory

A Nottingham-headquarted firm which manufactures packaging has invested $3m in a new Sri Lankan factory.

Wilkins Spence Packaging Lanka, a subsidiary of The Wilkins Group, will open the 40,000 sq ft facility in Mawaramandiya on 23rd October.

The company will be relocating from a rented property in Colombo.

Chairman and managing director of the Wilkins Group André Wilkins, said: “Having emerged from a three decade long conflict, Sri Lanka is now experiencing a massive resurgence in economic activity on all fronts. “As major infrastructure projects are put into place, the country is posed to welcome new investors to take economic activity to the next level. This building will house state-of-the-art machinery to produce innovative retail-packaging solutions.”

The Wilkins Group reported revenues of £33m last year.
