INSEE Cement, the official construction solutions provider of the ninth Jaffna International Trade Fair 2018 (JITF) held from the January 26th to 28th at the Jaffna Municipal Grounds, further strengthens their presence in the rapidly progressing Northern region as the cement

This is the third consecutive year that INSEE Cement joined JITF, the largest consumer and trade fair in the Northern region to provide consumers with the most innovative and progressing construction solutions, to meet the accelerated pace of development in the peninsula. The INSEE Cement team engaged with over 30,000 consumers, dealers, key officials and delegates, investors as well as representatives of public and private sectors at the JITF 2018. They were introduced to INSEE Cement’s latest advancements, together with the range of solution-based, high-performance cements, mortar and innovative Conwood products.
Conwood products are architectural and decorative building material manufactured as a substitute for authentic wood products used in residential and commercial buildings. Created using the highest quality raw materials with ultramodern Swiss technology, the product range introduced at JITF 2018 comprised of ceiling, wall, floor and other multipurpose decorative material that are durable, termite proof, incombustible and 100 percent eco-friendly.
The INSEE Cement team also heavily engaged with the Northern Region’s Individual Home Builders (IHBs), contractors and masons throughout the days preceding the JITF, understanding consumer requirements, and sharing knowledge and new insight on INSEE Cement’s future-proof products and sustainable solutions.
