Suren Cooke Agencies completes a decade of successful strategic partnership with Riken Keiki Co. Ltd., acting as Sri Lanka’s sole representative to procure and calibrate the industrial safety devices offered by this globally renowned brand.
Riken Keiki, a Japan based company is a world renowned leader in gas detection and environmental measurement products operating since 1939.
These safety monitors are deployed to trace leakages in industries that emit toxic or combustible gases such as, petroleum/refinery, shipping, laboratories and construction. Accordingly, the products procured through Suren Cooke Agencies comprise the full range of Riken safety devices which include large-scale gas detecting alarm systems, super toxic gas detectors, small-sized personal gas monitors, radiation monitors, oxygen detectors, environmental monitoring instruments used for pollution prevention and healthcare etc. The products are used for airborne monitoring, tunnel monitoring, marine monitoring, and in medical environments.
In highly hazardous environments the detectors are vital to trace possible leakages of toxic and combustible gas at an early stage and avert disasters, says the Director, Suren Cooke Agencies, Rajitha Cooke.
In addition to the procurement of the safety devices, Suren Cooke Agencies acts as a part of Riken Keiki’s international support network, offering testing and servicing for the latter’s international customers operating in Sri Lanka.
“International regulations that are in place have made it mandatory for certain industries to comply with calibration and servicing certificates. This is done through testing and servicing of the safety units installed in– for example, cargo or bowsers carrying toxic or combustible gases. Such calibration is a requirement to verify the accuracy of the units and proper functionality on par with manufacturer recommendation,” Rajitha explains.
Commenting on the strategic partnership with Riken Keiki, Rajitha says, “SCA business ethos and partnership decisions are always based on introducing quality and reputable brands to Sri Lanka. All our agencies are renowned global suppliers of quality products. Riken products are of premium quality, accurate, durable and are certified. They continue to refine their technology developed across the years, while investigating and improving on the quality and technical capability of the products. Therefore, we confidently recommend their products, given their high standards. At the end of the day, our aim is to safeguard human lives and assets.”
Prior to the partnership, Riken customers in Sri Lanka had to import directly from Singapore or India and re send the units to the country of origin for calibration and servicing on an annual basis. Suren Cooke’s highly competent team of service engineers are trained overseas to service and calibrate Riken Keiki products in Sri Lanka.
