InQube Honoured with First-Ever Presidential Award as “Emerging Exporter of the Year”
InQube Global, Sri Lanka’s newest entrant in the apparel industry, has made giant strides in a short span of 5 years. A joint venture partnership with Brandix, the company’s global manufacturing capabilities and strategic supply chain partnerships, coupled with their drive for innovation, provide customers with speed, agility, scale and competitiveness.
InQube’s most recent accolade was to be recognised as the Emerging Exporter of the Year for 2019/20 at the 24th Presidential Export Awards ceremony, which was held on the 26th of November under the patronage of His Excellency the President, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Based on their performance during the last financial year, the criteria for this prestigious award include export turnover, number of employment opportunities created, market diversification, growth rate, value addition and the efforts made in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Organised by the Sri Lanka Export Development Board, this prestigious award recognises InQube’s outstanding contribution to the export sector and the country’s economic development.
“As always, we remained agile and pivoted towards emerging market needs and powered through the pandemic. By attracting the right talent, providing them with opportunities and focusing on strategic challenges rapidly, we were able to grow in this competitive sector. This award is a testament to the courage and dedication of our people and the resilience of the company and for that I am forever grateful.” stated Dilan Gooneratne, Founder and Managing Director of InQube, commenting on the win.
InQube’s goal is to create and scale human and planet-centric clothing solutions by fusing future tech with innovative design. Using emerging technologies, advanced material research, and biomechanics for in-depth performance testing, they aim to disrupt the world of apparel and its value chains through a strong stakeholder push towards sustainability.
With the recent acquisition of Hong Kong-based intimate apparel giant Clover, the Group’s footprint spans across Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Cambodia, China, Haiti and the United Kingdom. InQube is creating a paradigm shift in the apparel industry and continues to evolve as it expands its footprint globally.
