Kelani Cables General Manager Marketing Anil Munasinghe addressing the gathering said Kelani welding cables secured the biggest market share for welding cables in this country within six years. He said the company was able to achieve this feat because of its dedicated sales agents.

“Colombo District has the majority of companies and factories that use welding cables thus they contribute towards the major portion of our market share. Inferior quality welding cables are imported by some quarters to cater to this need. Kelani Cables imports copper that is derived from the finest copper-mines in the world to manufacture this product with highest standards. Our sales agents play a pivotal role in communicating this aspect to the prospective customers to build their confidence towards Kelani welding cables and converting it to sales. I pay gratitude to our Colombo district sales agents on behalf of Kelani Cables,” said Munasinghe.

CIMCO Metal Managing Director Ravi Shankar commended the dedication and enthusiasm of his sales agents. “Our sales agents have clearly understood the impact made on total sales volume of Kelani welding cables via sales in Colombo. Thus I appreciate Kelani Cables PLC hosting this event to recognise this dedicated force of sales agents in Colombo,” he said.
