Earlier last month, the Sugathadasa National Sports Complex Authority made great strides in the development process of the Sugathadasa Stadium located in Colombo by partnering with New Ashford International (Pvt) Ltd, an enterprise specializing in the sales and service of material handling equipment, compressed air equipment and racking systems.
The link between the two parties was commemorated by presenting the Assistant Director of Sports at the Sugathadasa National Sports Complex Authority with world renowned products such as Ransomes Jacobsen lawnmowers and Bernhard grinders on April 26th.
The enterprise and the products were specifically selected by the authority as they consist of high quality technical specifications and are manufactured in Europe. Both Ransomes Jacobson lawnmowers and Bernhard grinders are brands that are highly recognized around the globe. New Ashford International (Pvt) Ltd has functioned as the exclusive agent in the country for Ransomes Jacobsen for the last fifteen years and Bernhard grinders since last year.
Speaking on this beneficial partnership, Director at New Ashford International Vishal Jayasekera said, “New Ashford is proud to partner with Sri Lanka’s premier multi-purpose stadium and provide Sugathadasa Stadium products which have quality, craftsmanship and expertise spanning over 95 years.”
