Sri Lanka’s BPPL Holdings PLC, which is a brush and recycled plastic products manufacturer, has reportedly recorded consolidated revenue by 31% year-on-year (YoY) to Rs. 3.4 billion.

Ltd. (a leading manufacturer of polyester yarn and mono-filaments using recycled plastics) and Beira Brush (Pvt.) Ltd. (one of Southeast Asia’s leading manufacturers and exporters of professional and household cleaning tools).
BPPL has undertaken a series of key strategic initiatives during the financial year while the product and market diversification efforts of BPPL have also yielded positive results.
“While achieving sound growth in all key financial indicators by effectively navigating the significant challenges posed by the pandemic, we have also laid the foundation for the group’s next phase of expansion,” BPPL Holdings PLC Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Anush Amarasinghe has been quoted as saying. “With these developments complementing the existing investments in cutting-edge technology and a promising pipeline of orders, BPPL is well placed for long-term growth.”
The growth rate recorded by a local company in recycling plastic products is indicative of the growing business/investment opportunities Sri Lanka’s recycling sectors. Sri Lanka is engaged in a programme to minimize solid waste disposal and build the capacity of eco friendly, sustainable waste disposal methods. Given Sri Lanka’s ongoing development programme aimed at placing the country as an emerging business hub in the South Asian region, foreign businesses/investors could explore the growing opportunities in assisting Sri Lanka in achieving sustainable development goals.
