Nov 22, Colombo: MAS Fabric Park (MFP), owner and operator of Sri Lanka’s first, second and only privately owned apparel intensive free trade zones in Thulhiriya and Giriulla, recently celebrated 16 years of Sustainable Industrial Transformation.

Its operations focus primarily on the development and value addition of fabrics. MFP spans across a sprawling 165 acres in Thulhiriya and 45 acres in Giriulla. The Zones play a strategic role in the vertical integration of MAS’ supply chain.

MFP provides world-class industrial support services such as centralized water treatment and distribution facilities for industrial and human consumption, meeting World Health Organization (WHO) standards.

, it also has centralized power via a medium voltage distribution system, centralized steam and thermic energy supply and Sri Lanka’s largest combined centralized effluent treatment plant for both biological and chemical treatment. MFP is also the largest multi-site roof-mounted solar generator in Sri Lanka, with 19 installations totaling 23MW spread across the country. It also boasts the largest roof-mounted solar installation with 4.2MW installed on a single 10-acre roof at the Thulhiriya zone.

The Thulhiriya zone comprises of a 10-acre analog forest named Thuruwadula. This is the first replicable analog forest implemented and owned by a non-government agency.

In these two sustainable industrial zones, nothing goes to waste where sludge is co-incinerated with bio-mass to produce steam and thermic energy. Moreover, residue boiler ash is converted to Eco Bricks for construction and in-house manufacture of certified compost fertilizer at a commercial scale.

MAS Athena Learning and Development center is an integral part of MFP. It has numerous training and conference facilities, an auditorium, sports grounds, dine-in, accommodation and leisure facilities catering to meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions (MICE). This is Sri Lanka’s only destination solution that can cater to all corporate and leisure needs in one compound.

Today, MFP has created 12,000 employment opportunities and is the hub for engineered knit and technical textiles housing Trischel Fabric, MAS Linea Intimo, MAS Fabrics Matrix, Textprint, MAS Intimates Thurulie and MAS Kreeda Methliya. These manufacturing plants produce apparel for the world’s top brands.

An event was held to celebrate this 16-year milestone. The key feature was the presence of some of the engineering teams that built this iconic landmark between 1968 and 1971.

MFP continues to innovate and evolve with best practices in sustainable industrial manufacturing, driving MAS’ purpose to be Changemakers, enabling dreams and enriching the fabric of life on our planet. Any global customer buying a product manufactured at MFP can be assured that the product they purchase is ethically manufactured.
