INSEE Cement, recently recognised the exceptional achievements of its business partners at the annual Business Partner Awards 2023 held at the Courtyard by Marriott in Colombo.

This year’s event – themed “Unbreakable bonds, Unstoppable journey, Our strength, INSEE” – held particular importance, given the intense challenges confronted by the construction sector in the past year.

Speaking at the event, INSEE Cement CEO Jan Kunigk highlighted the important role business partners play in the company’s consistent customer-centric approach. “The strong support of our business partners was instrumental in INSEE Cement’s ability to weather the storm over the past year and expand the reach of our superior products and services through turbulent times,” he said. 

In the past year, INSEE Cement added INSEE Sanstha Paint and INSEE Sanstha PVC products to its already impressive products portfolio. “As we broaden our product offerings, our business partners contribute to INSEE Cement’s ability to provide top-tier quality across our total product portfolio. I can say with pride that this is a testament to our collective dedication to innovation and excellence.” 

During the event, a total of 34 awards were presented to high-performing business partners including 11 national awards and 20 regional awards. The event also marked the first time that awards were presented to business partners in the building materials category.
