New garment factory to make cop, army attire

Indonesian garment manufacturer Sri Rejeki Isman, better known as Sritex, has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Interior Ministry to establish a joint venture that will manufacture uniforms for the Kingdom’s police and military personnel.

The $50 million venture, to be called Sritex Cambodia, will see the Indonesian firm set up a factory later this year, according to the Jakarta Globe.

Publicly-listed Sritex manufactures military and corporate uniforms and announced last year that they will sell 100,000 uniforms in Cambodia, as part of a global expansion plan, which also includes Australia, Kosovo and several African countries.
