Recently, the management and employees of INSEE Ruhunu Cement Plant celebrated 50 years on 3 August, at Avenra Beach, Hikkaduwa. The celebration started in June, with a worthy effort undertaken to donate a house for a family in desperate need of one. A magnanimous effort of goodwill took place when members of INSEE Cement Management, Ruhunu Cement Plant Buddhist Association and Ruhunu Cement Plant contractors and business partners came together to build a house for Buddhika and his family. Buddhika works under a third-party contractor of Siam City Cement (Lanka) Ltd., also known as INSEE Cement. The entire Ruhunu Cement plant staff stepped forward to build Buddhika’s house within 37 days and handed over it to the family to coincide with the 50 years celebration of the plant. Buddhika and his family were excited to be a part of the 50 years celebrations event of Ruhunu Cement plant, together with the Management and members of INSEE family. Furthermore, former senior employees of Ruhunu Cement Plant who have been instrumental at the time of inception of the Ruhunu Cement Plant in 1967, were also honoured at the event
