Lanka Special Steel Limited (Lanka SSL), a renowned and trusted name in premium quality wires and a fully owned subsidiary of E B Creasy & Company PLC, recently introduced Sri Lanka’s one and only SLS certified barbed wire, further complementing its position as a long-standing pioneer and only manufacturer for SLS certified hot dipped galvanized (Gi) wire.

The company continues to strive on its quest for quality and innovation and has invested tremendous amount of effort in various research and development initiatives. Scientific research study concluded in 2019 in collaboration with University of Moratuwa found that the service life of its hot dipped galvanized wire exceeds 25 years, taking into consideration the corrosion rates for different geographical locations in the country

An ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 45001:2018 certified company, Lanka SSL has been at the forefront of the country’s galvanized wire segment with a top-of-mind brand, enjoying a loyal and repetitive clientele closer to three decades. Its products are on par with some of the world’s best, manufactured in its state-of-the-art factory situated at Sapugaskanda. Its hot dipped Gi wire is the only one with SLS 139:2003, and lately its barbed wire with the SLS 31:1988 certification.

Pravin De Silva, CEO and Director of Lanka SSL, said ‘As the pioneer in the steel wire industry having a 25 year history Lanka SSL is always committed to continuously improve its product standards to supply superior quality products to consumers. We are happy to announce that our barbed wire is now the only SLS-31 certified product in the country. We are ambitious to further expand our portfolio and markets, whilst placing quality, innovation, and sustainability at the heart of our operations.

The company is poised for expansions across its portfolio in the coming months. During end last year, it embarked on a renewed and strengthening relationship with TATA Steel Ltd’s Global Wires Division which is a long-standing partnership as the sole agent and distributor for all of its premium quality wire products in the country.

Further, Lanka SSL also introduced the ‘Permaweld’ brand welding electrode for all general purpose welding requirements, distributed across the island by Laxapana Batteries PLC’s Hardware Distribution arm.

Its pursuit for providing unparalleled excellence is well commended and recognized with numerous awards. In March this year, it was awarded the coveted National Gold Award- Extra Large Category (Manufacturing Sector) and the Top Ten Award at the CNCI Achiever Awards 2020 for Industrial Excellence, and another Gold Award at the National Convention of Quality and Productivity 2020 held by SLAAQP.

The Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Sri Lanka with the collaboration of the International Labour Organization and the Government of Japan initiated a programme under the project of Socioeconomic Reintegration of Sri Lankan Migrant Workers Repatriated due to the COVID-19 Outbreak. From September 2022 to July 2023, the FCCISL spearheaded this remarkable endeavor, with the joint partnership of National Apprentice and Industrial Training Authority (NAITA) served as the training provider for the programme.

From Matara to Puttalam, the training reached regions far and wide, including Batticaloa, Anuradhapura, Kurunegala, Kandy, Jaffna, Ratnapura, Kalutara, and Galle. Notably, the project embraced inclusivity, with approximately 40 percent of trainees being females.

The 18th edition of the Blue and Gold Hockey Sevens organized by Royal College, Colombo in collaboration with the Royal College Hockey Club (RCHC) will take place on August 12 and 13 from 8.00am onwards at the Royal College main grounds at Reid Avenue.

The tournament is held for the first time since 2019 as Covid pandemic followed by economic crisis prevented the organizers from having the annual event in the last three years.

The tournament provides the young and energetic players coming from diverse backgrounds with the unique opportunity and exposure of displaying their skills and talents in an arena that has not only caught the limelight in the hockey fraternity of the nation but is also an eye-catching attraction on the schools’ sports calendar in Sri Lanka.

The event will see record high number of 66 schools participating in both boys’ and girls’ categories.

The first edition of the Blue & Gold Hockey 7’s took place in 1992 with a participation of only 16 boys’ schools. Despite the success of the tournament, the continuation was constrained due to funding limitations.

However, after a lapse of ten years, the tournament was recommenced in 2002 and brought to action on a very grand scale with tremendous commitment by the office bearers of the Royal College Hockey Club.

Since its recommencement, the tournament has witnessed outstanding progress and has become a trendsetter in improving, developing, and evolving the game of hockey in Sri Lanka.

Dharmaraja College emerged victorious in the Boys category under the Cup Championship when the tournament was held last time in 2019, while Seethadevi Balika clinched the Cup Championship in the Girls category.

Top notch school hockey teams Alocious College Galle, Kingswood College, Kandy, Zahira College Matale, St. Thomas College, Mount Lavinia and Matale, Ananda College, Colombo along with the hosts Royal will be in the fore front to win the title for this year in the boys category, while eight-time champions Seethadevi Kandy and Janadhipathi Balika Vidyalaya, Kotte are expected to give their best in the girls category.
