CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE

Mr. Nandana Lokuwithana

Sri Lanka: a pearl in the Indian ocean, a beacon of resilience and hope for a better tomorrow…

Some say the authentic colours of either a person, a company or even a country stand out in difficult situations. And as an entrepreneur, a Sri Lankan and a globally connected individual, I would say that Sri Lanka is showing its colours marvellously. Sri Lanka is a blessed land with multitudinous opportunities. I realized it not only by being a Sri Lankan but also when I was exposed to the world while living overseas.

Like most of the young generation in the ’80s, I too decided to migrate, thinking and dreaming of greener pastures. However, I have realized that there is no other to compare with my birth country. I can vouch now that in Sri Lanka, the prospects are more affluent, brighter and splendid, though I had my share of good fortune in rising from the ranks up the corporate ladder to power with the renowned and the famous in the business world.

After returning to Sri Lanka, I marked my first entrepreneurial venture and a giant step in the Sri Lankan business world with the acquisition of Ceylon Heavy Industries & Construction Company Limited, CHICO, from a Korean entity, in 2009. And it was renamed Ceylon Steel Corporation Limited with the brand name “Lanwa Sanstha Wane”, reinstalling the national pride of a giant in the steel business since 1961; Ceylon Steel Corporation pioneered steel fabrication in Sri Lanka. Not long after, Ferentino Tyre Corporation (Pvt) Limited commenced construction at Horana. Continuing my journey as a proud, 100% Sri Lankan entrepreneur, I initiated my third venture, Lanwa Sanstha Cement Corporation (Pvt) Limited at Hambanthota.

The world we see is spinning in a faster phase than ever when it comes to technological advancement and innovation. Hence I, too, aim to ingrain state-of-the-art technology and advanced technical know-how in our industries so we will be future-ready and on par with the global standings as a country. I firmly believe that if we all Sri Lankans can commit ourselves to catapult Sri Lanka to a future where we are adamantine and indestructible socially, economically, and industrially, no youth have a necessity to migrate overseas for better jobs as Sri Lanka itself would produce lucrative employment and better futures for them.

And that vision of mine will be enriched with our new venture, Lanwa Sanstha Cement Corporation (Pvt) Ltd. Lanwa Sanstha Cement Corporation (Pvt) Ltd., as a sister company of Sri Lanka’s foremost manufacturer of steel Ceylon Steel Corporation Limited, will thrive to become one of the region’s largest cement manufacturers, and the principal supplier for all major construction projects of the country.

Our production is located in the Export Processing Zone of Mirijjawila, Hambanthota, with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility spread across 63 acres. Also, this facility incorporates a host of sophisticated features, including a 2.4km covered conveyer belt connecting the port & factory for increased efficiency, minimal wastage and pollution.

In many ways, we’re optimistic that this venture will significantly boost the economy in terms of technological advancement, environmental friendly technologies and a solution to the shortage of cement, which is crippling the local construction sector.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Mr. Dammika Lokuwithana

I am truly honoured to partner with the Chairman’s vision of boosting the infrastructure development of the nation, and happy that the Group was able to usher in LANWA Sanstha Cement Corporation (Pvt.) Limited as a key player in the manufacture and supply of high-quality cements to the construction industry.

I am, also, happy to announce to all our customers and dealers island wide that with LANWA we have redoubled our mutual trust and partnership, for LANWA now stands as the first and only manufacturer of both quality steel rebars and quality cement, in Sri Lanka.

I have the utmost confidence that the brand LANWA Sanstha Cement will win the trust of all its consumers for its quality of raw material, standards of manufacture, and competitive pricing, just like our very own ‘LANWA Sanstha Wane’–the pioneer and leading brand of reinforcement steel in Sri Lanka for over sixty years.

That is why, from the very start, we were emphatic about commissioning a first-of-its-kind facility with the latest European technology in our mixing plants, so that we create a product that is the best in the market. We were also focused on creating a manufacturing process that is sustainable and environmentally friendly, unlike any other. A 2.4 km fully enclosed conveyor from port to plant, together with a fully automated Stacker Reclaimer Yard, also fully enclosed, ensures that the entire plant environment of 63 acres is dust-free. That is a first in Sri Lanka!

As this catalogue showcases, the products that we have on offer meet and surpass the most stringent quality criteria that the industry demands. It is not only quality cement that we offer when we are servicing the industry. We offer a service that is hard to surpass, for it comes with over sixty years of accumulated experience in understanding the project and the client in the industry, as well.

I am confident that with our island-wide distributor presence that was mutually nurtured to make the brand LANWA Sastha Wane the trusted brand for generations, will create that same customer trust with LANWA Sanstha Cement, for generations to come!
