Indian manufacturing giant Mtandt and Sri Lanka’s PromoLanka Group have partnered to launch Mtandt Lanka [Pvt] Ltd. Mtandt is India’s largest manufacturing and rental company for mobile access platforms, aerial work platforms and material handling equipment; all of which will now be available in Sri Lanka.

Mtandt’s focus is on providing safe and economical solutions to the industrial and infrastructure segments. Sri Lanka is currently experiencing a domestic construction boom, growing at 6.5% per year and contributing almost 10% to GDP in recent years. Along with these developments the growth of a supporting industry in equipment and construction related services has been vital to sustaining the momentum, notes PromoLanka Group CEO, Adil Mansoor. “We are very pleased to bring Mtandt’s construction equipment to Sri Lanka, as these products are widely recognized as industry pacesetters, especially in terms of bringing about safety for workers and improving the efficiency on the job, two key elements that are currently void,” he said.

Mtandt Lanka will offer products such as Aerial Work Platforms, which significantly minimize risks when working at heights, and enhance productivity and convenience. Also on the portfolio are Material Handling Equipment, Mobile Access Platform Systems (aluminium scaffolding solutions made for high mobility and increased safety) and Fixed Access and Fall Protection Systems.
