Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday opened a state-of-the-art factory producing gloves for export at the Koggala Free Trade Zone.
The factory, ATG Hand Care Ltd., is a $50 million investment that provides 7,000 jobs directly and 10,000 indirectly. ATG Hand Care is a joint venture of ATG Ltd and British investor John Ward Ceylon. Incidentally, Wickremesinghe opened the Koggala Free Trade Zone in June 1991 as the then Minister of Industrial Development. This factory is the last project of the Zone.
