Further Madanayake stated, “We have moved into additional new business ventures such as switches, sockets, electrical accessories and renewable power, which would increase our business potential to serve a vast range of customer segments and improve our business standards as well. The latest introduction of our fire zero and fire survivor cables has also meant to be a promising product in the market, with its remarkable results shown during a shorter period of time.”
“Buoyed by our positive progress this year, we look forward to doing even better in the future, thanks to the immense trust placed in us by our satisfied customers, and with the help of our highly motivated channel partners, key stakeholders and valued employees,” added Madanayake.
