Sewn Export commenced operations in 2010 in a small location at Orugodawatte in the capital city of Colombo. Our export turnover in the first year was around USD 100,000. We were determined to realize our business mission of becoming the largest exporter of waste paper in Sri Lanka. Within this short period of seven years we now remain the fourth largest exporter in the country. There are almost 20 exporters competing with one another for the collection of waste.
We export the following from Sri Lanka and is now geared to supply 1850-2500 metric tons per month.
