PromoLanka Group was awarded the BID International Quality Summit Award in the Gold category for 2016, at a ceremony held in New York. The award was received by PromoLanka Group Chairman and Managing Director Azad Mansoor during the BID International Quality Summit Convention - a gathering of professionals and business leaders from around the world to recognise excellence in quality management.
PromoLanka is the only Sri Lankan entity offering complete turnkey hospitality solutions in Sri Lanka and the Maldives. The extensive PromoLanka portfolio that also includes EuroKitchens Trading and Contracting (Pvt.) Ltd and PromoLanka Marketing together with complete commitment to quality has enabled the company to become the leading supplier to the local hotel industry and consumer household market. The BID International Quality Summit Award recipient is chosen by Business Initiative Directors (BID). Led by a group of qualified professionals from academia, business and engineering sectors, the International Quality Convention in New York recognises best practices and pacesetters in Total Quality Management and Quality Culture. PromoLanka Group was chosen as the winner in the Gold category for its carefully selected product portfolio that ensures quality and
complete satisfaction for the customer, alongside its commitment to the criteria of the QC100 TQM Model. This model has been devised to help bolster customer satisfaction and cost efficiency across all areas of operation. The model promotes an organisational culture of engagement and a proactive approach to improving processes, two commitments PromoLanka had made to its business from inception. At the summit Mansoor shared the company’s remarkable progress to date, as well as a glimpse into the roadmap for its future. “Our commitment to quality has ensured the success of our products and services,” he noted, back in Colombo with the accolade. “This award is a reaffirmation of that continued commitment to further improving our processes and supply systems, ensuring that our customers in the hospitality industry receive the best quality-driven, technologically innovative solutions to their needs.”
Receiving the BID Quality Summit Award represents recognition that PromoLanka follows the path of excellence, promoting ideas of social and business intelligence, the pursuit of continuous improvement, effectiveness and productivity, said BID President and CEO Jose E. Prieto. “The award recipients are symbols of commitment to leadership, technology and innovation, making them models for others in their sectors.”
