Grand opening of new electronics factory in Sri Lanka

The official opening featured esteemed guests, including the Ambassadors of Denmark and Switzerland, along with valued customers, suppliers, and trade organisations.

Following a tour around the new facilities, the grand opening was concluded with a celebratory dinner in the evening.

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the construction process as well as installing our equipment in the new factory,” says Chandana Dissanayake, Managing Director at GPV Electronics LK.
