JAT Holdings sponsored the recent fourth edition of the Sri Lanka Wood International Expo 2016 exhibition which culminated with great success at the BMICH in Colombo.
JAT Holdings Managing Director Aelian Gunawardene said, “It gave us great pleasure to present this well-attended exhibition which afforded the excellent opportunity for players in Sri Lanka’s wood working industry to both expand their businesses and also expand their knowledge base about the innovations in the industry.
With more than 100+ companies from 10+ countries showcasing their wood-related products and services, the Sri Lanka Wood International Expo 2016 exhibition also created an interactive and healthy B2B platform for industry stake holders and the public.
This three-day exhibition focused on a comprehensive range of impressive wood and wood working machinery, furniture hardware, fittings and fixtures, timber and lumber, particle boards, MDF boards, panels and plywood, power tools, parquetry, veneers and laminates, wood composites, coatings and adhesives to name just a few.
Organised by Show Craft International Sri Lanka, this trade exhibition gave visitors the unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in a multitude of ways. They were afforded the opportunity to witness live demonstrations of machines and tools, participate in training sessions, compare pricing, learn innovative methods, clarify their doubts, present their queries and receive valuable feedback.
“JAT is one of the leading players in Sri Lanka’s construction industry. We do have a great deal to offer the rapidly changing and challenging environment with our strong portfolio of products and services. Hence our very active involvement with this exhibition,” Gunawardene added.
The JAT enclave at Sri Lanka Wood International Expo 2016 was undoubtedly among the most visited spaces during the three-day exhibition, attracting a few thousand visitors per day. An impressive array of global brands which make up JAT’s growing product portfolio was on display to the public. Among them were Sayerlack, Herman Miller, Permoglaze, Crown, Brush Master, Master Plaster, Borma Wachs, Norton, Nature and Armstrong.
Members of the highly trained ‘JAT A+ Team’ skilled as much as in customer as well as technical skills were at hand through all three days to answer all visitor questions with the personalised touch that is synonymous with the ‘JAT experience’.
