As the number one provider of premium bathware in Sri Lanka, and also a leading supplier of industrial equipment and other engineering solutions, Charter House is well positioned to play a key role in the nation’s rapid progress.

Founded over 20 years ago as a trading company, Charter House has been representing some of the world’s exclusive brands which have helped the company to grow to keep pace with an evolving Sri Lanka.

In the bathware industry, Charter House represents Grohe, Inda, and Bravat – brands which have won global acclaim and found favour in Sri Lanka. Committed to the highest standards of quality and service, the company has serviced some of the finest hotels, luxury apartments and prestigious residencies with the range of quality products they have to offer.

In the industrial segment, Charter House is also a pioneer, providing engineering solutions to a wide range of clients in fields as diverse as petroleum, power and water supply.

Some of the leading product lines it represents are Tokheim fuel dispensing equipment and systems, Istobal garage equipment, Piusi pumping and metering equipment, liquid controls, flow monitoring equipment, Protech lube management systems and a host of other industrial equipment. The company recently secured a contract for the supply of a state-of-the-art lubrication management system for Toyota Lanka’s service bays.

In the petroleum sector, Charter House was the preferred su      pplier to Lanka IOC filling stations throughout the country, where the latest Tokheim digital dispensers are no      w installed. With the expansion of business to the north and the east, Charter House is geared to play a leading role in the building of a new Sri Lanka.

As a first step to diversifying their business, the company established Charter House Engineering, which holds the sole distributorship for Motul, one of the oldest and most trusted brands of lubricants in the world, and one of the main sponsors of the Moto GP. Motul is now widely available through a wide distribution network which has been set up in all parts of the country.

The company is currently in the process of strengthening its distribution network, especially in the north and east, to meet rising demand for Motul products.

In addition to lubricants, Charter House Engineering plans to take over the engineering equipment division currently handled by Charter House and will be providing complete garage and workshop solutions under one roof. This would include vehicle lifts, auto washers, lubrication systems, and vehicle test equipment to cater to the growing demand in this sector.

Built on a foundation of superior after-sales service, Charter House operates a fully equipped workshop that is manned by trained technical personnel. After the company’s recent restructuring, Charter House is prepared to go even further beyond customer expectations to deliver the most professional solutions in the industry.

This readiness is enabled by the company’s investment in its people. Charter House employees are amongst the best-trained in the industry, with periodical training programmes for third party industrial specialist are kept informed on the new technologies and other development necessary to deliver a premium level of service that Charter House customers deserve.

The continued economic development of the nation will require that all Sri Lankan stakeholders join together on the path of progress. As the nation continues to fulfil the promise of its limitless potential, Charter House has shown that it is more than ready to do its part.
