“This victory we have garnered within a short time span as of 8 years since the inception is a token of encouragement. We also could win ‘Shilpa’ Golden award sometime back. We are willing to obtain the ISO 9001:2015 QMS certificate. The dedication of the staff and the efforts to maintain the international quality standards have been the reason for this victory. Though the entry into the field was compromising, the knowledge I gained in respect of polymer technology from the University of Moratuwa and the training from the National institute of Business Management were of immense support”, added Priyadarshana.
