RS Steel, a leading steel rods manufacturing company in Sri Lanka, celebrated the dawn of the New Year with its Chairman Dr. Ramesh Shivalingam at its factory premises in Uswetakeyyawa.

The Chairman individually incurred all costs and the donations took place for the sixth consecutive year.

Participants of the occasion were family members of Dr. Shivalingam, RS Steel Deputy Chairman Maithree de Silva, RS Steel senior management and social workers of Uswetakeyyawa.

Dr. Shivalingam speaking at the occasion said his company commenced work every year by engaging in a mammoth CSR project aimed at fulfilling needs of schooling children.

“We have commenced the year 2019 by donating school books and stationary to the children in the vicinity of RS Steel factory. The earnest wish of our company is to see these children grow up with proper education. We wish to see the future generation of Sri Lanka being groomed well to become wise and educated citizens,” he said.

He added: “RS Steel Company that manufactures RS QST RB 500 steel rods became the leading steel wire manufacturing company in Sri Lanka in a very short span. We could achieve this status because of our dedicated and vibrant workforce. Therefore it is our responsibility to appreciate their work and motivate them at the beginning of a new year. Their children received schooling gear today as a part of our appreciation.”
