Kandurata Umbrellas, Sri Lanka’s foremost umbrella manufacturer has unveiled a brand new range of products, especially for ladies and kids this season.
The new range of Kandurata umbrellas are also designed by the masters of the trade and manufactured using the state of the art machinery at Kandurata Umbrellas’ manufacturing plants at Kadugannawa, Gampola and Nawalapitiya.
The new range includes umbrellas specially made for the ladies, such as ‘Colour Change Umbrellas’, ‘Super Shine umbrellas’ and ‘Printed Frill Umbrellas’. The Kids’ range includes umbrellas with handles decorated with pictures of Water, Kitty and Duck themes. The kids range also includes umbrellas with handles decorated with pictures of Bears. Innovations of this kind are however not new to Kandurata Umbrellas, which has found success in both the local and international markets.
Since it was founded in 1978 as a sole proprietorship by the late M.H.M. Thajudeen with only 10 employees and four machines as a cottage industry, Kandurata Umbrellas has made a remarkable growth over the years. Under the dynamic stewardship of Managing Director/Chairman Deshamanya Dr. M.T.M. Nawushad and Director Operations M.T.M. Nawufal who manage the core business, Kandurata Umbrellas currently employs over 1,000 people.
Kandurata Umbrellas has already secured the top slot in the market at the manufacturer of ladies, gents and kids’ umbrellas as well as mosquito nets, raincoats and socks. Their excellence was also recognised at the recently held MAS Lanka Business Excellence Awards as one of the 10 best brand names of Sri Lanka.
