Aruna Engineering Industries, Ambepussa was honoured with the Industrial Excellence Award for Sabaragamuwa Province at the SLCSMI Industrial Excellence Awards 2017, organised by Sri Lanka Chamber of Small and Medium Industries. The award ceremony, chaired by Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajit Coomaraswamy, was held at Hotel Ramada, Colombo recently. 

With 40 years of long experience, Aruna Engineering Industries primarily manufactures machines engineered to make papadam and noodles, as well as machines needed for dehydration of products such as papadam, noodles, spices, fruits and vegetables. Aruna Engineering Industries has introduced two new semi-automated models of machines for making papadam to the market. One model makes it possible to make 200-250 kilograms of papadam, and the other is capable of making papadam in the range of 300-400 kilograms per day. These two machines are marked by the fact that they are automated so as to work without intervention by the trained human workforce. At the President’s Award ceremony organised by the Rural Industries Ministry, apart from the President’s Award, Aruna Engineering Industries received several awards from the Sri Lanka Board of Commerce.
