Beira Brush, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BPPL, recently won the prestigious Presidential Export Award for the ‘Highest Value-Added Exporter in the Chemical and Plastic Product Sectors’ in 2014 and 2015.  The award ceremony organized by the Export Development Board (EDB) at the BMICH was attended by President Maithripala Sirisena.

Operating in a niche segment, Beira Brush has already established a strong track record as a high quality brushware and filament supplier to the US, Canada, UK and Australasian markets. BPPL has established a unique niche in brushware manufacturing that enables it to make use of locally available resources and technical expertise to deliver world-class products.

Chief Executive Officer of BPPL, Dr. Anush Amarasinghe, commented: “We have ambitious plans chalked out for BPPL and are well on our way to achieving them. Sri Lanka is a nation on the march towards prosperity and we want to be positioned as one of the proud local companies that showcase local talent and skills to the world. This Presidential accolade will certainly help us in accomplishing that task.”  Established in 1986, BPPL manufactures a range of high quality, durable cleaning products for both professional and household applications.
