Teejay Lanka PLC, one of the largest knit fabric providers in South Asia, has announced an extension of its support to the University of Moratuwa for another two years, further strengthening a long standing and mutually beneficial partnership.
A memorandum of understanding first signed in 2014 provided the now tight-knit organisations with a framework for a long-term collaborative relationship that has, among others, resulted in all Teejay’s designers being graduates of Fashion Design from the University. Job applications from graduates of the University are also given priority by the Company. Furthermore, the collaboration has resulted in strengthening research, design and technical capabilities and product development on a mutually beneficial platform.
