Inauguration of the MAKEEN Energy Manufacturing Centre

A first class production plant:

2800 square meter assembling workshop with inventory area

1200 square meter fabrication and welding workshop

Electrostatic discharge controlled area for the production of electronic control units and components

Two storey office and welfare complex to provide administrative support

Accessibility to Colombo Port and Katunayake International Airport within a 30 kilometer radius

On Wednesday, 16 August 2017, MAKEEN Energy's new, high-technology manufacturing centre was officially inaugurated in Sri Lanka. The new production facility is meant to manufacture and deliver a wide range of both Siraga and Kosan Crisplant equipment.

The new facility is a means to accommodate a growing demand for Siraga equipment in future, and the manufacturing of Siraga's equipment will therefore take place in the newly inaugurated MAKEEN Energy Manufacturing Centre in Sri Lanka as of 16 August 2017. The state-of-the-art facility will ensure the same European quality standard Siraga customers have been accustomed to, but with enhanced production and delivery efficiencies.

The ceremony 

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Dr. Sarath Amunugama (Minister of Special Assignments - Sri Lanka) and Mr. Lasantha Alagiyawanna (Deputy Minister of Finance and Mass Media - Sri Lanka) together with the Board of Directors and the Al-Ayuni Board of Management as well as the MAKEEN Energy Groups. Representatives from many other bodies, including the Sri Lankan government officials, suppliers, service providers and our colleagues from various parts of the globe also took part in the spectacular celebration. The ceremony was characterised by a vibrant and festive atmosphere with official speeches, cultural events, and of course, a tour of the new manufacturing facility.  

Better service for our customers

We are thrilled about the opportunities this new manufacturing centre will bring. It will support the ever-increasing product range and production volumes of our group and finally allow us to manufacture both Siraga and Kosan Crisplant equipment under one roof. The centre will also facilitate better operating spaces, manufacturing process flows and state-of-the art equipment to boost our production.

Our customers worldwide will receive the full benefits of this new, high-tech manufacturing centre and as a group, we are now even better prepared to take on new and exciting challenges that the LPG cylinder filling industry has to offer in the years to come.

As the new manufacturing centre has been long underway, naturally, the inauguration day was not only celebrated in Sri Lanka, but was also marked across the globe in all our local hubs.
