The bottles and bottle caps are manufactured using Japanese technology and modern machinery. As a result of the commitment of the company’s management and staff, the project has achieved continuous success. Dr. Upul B. Senarath said that their aim was to contribute to empower the country’s economy by expanding this project, exporting more products, and earning foreign exchange.
