Kelani Cables PLC, Sri Lanka’s number one brand in secure electrical and communication cables provided knowledge in electrical wire manufacturing to a team of electrical technicians representing Batticaloa district recently.
Training was provided under the Kelani Visura CSR program to a selected team of 50 technicians representing Akkaraipattu, Batticaloa and Kalmunai.
They were provided with transport by the company to travel from Batticaloa and return to their hometown. They were taken to two biggest Kelani Cables factories in Kelaniya and Siyambalape to provide comprehensive knowledge in manufacturing various types of wires and their production processes.
In addition, a workshop to upgrade their knowledge with newest methods practiced in the electrical technical sphere was conducted by B. Sudakaran, the chief engineer of water treating plant in Batticaloa.
Kelani Cables PLC Sales Manager (Distribution) Chaminda Waidyatilleke and Sales Controller Ralph Roshan subsequent to doing a research with Zonal Sales Manager V Aravindan have found out, electrical technicians in the vicinity having nominal knowledge in electrical wire manufacturing process. Thus the team has decided to bring these technicians to Colombo to offer them with the opportunity to witness diverse wire manufacturing processes.
Anil Munasinghe, General Manager Sales, Kelani Cables PLC commented, “Our Company via 'Kelani Visura' CSR program provides knowledge to electrical technicians on an island wide basis. Nearly 20,000 electrical technicians have obtained 'Kelani Visura' memberships already. They with their family members enjoy benefits of 'Kalani Visura' throughout the year. This is the second occasion we entertained electrical technicians at our factories with the object of letting them witness electrical wire manufacturing processes”.
He added, “When we communicated with these electrical technicians, we got to know they have very little knowledge in wires though they have been working in the sector for many years. They lacked knowledge as regards, how to select wires with quality, what goes into the manufacturing process as raw material and tactics to safeguard wires. Thus we offered them this opportunity to visit our factories to witness wire manufacturing process. We intend to provide this opportunity to electrical technicians all over the island”.
