Tokyo Cement remained the largest dedicated cement manufacturer, despite the competition by many local and foreign cement brands. The company continues to invest in research and development (R&D), to strengthen our core products and extend our value-added cement portfolio.
In 2012, we took our R&D activities a step further, by opening an independent cement laboratory in Dambulla that offers testing facilities for construction firms, house builders and even competitors.
Tokyo Cement continues to develop new cement related products and introduce international best practices to Sri Lanka’s construction industry in a bid to support industry development and provide better value for consumers. This process of introducing innovative building technologies and techniques, have gained in importance in Sri Lanka, due to rapid urbanisation and rise in demand for land.
Currently there is an urgent need to reexamine town planning, space management and the efficient use of raw materials for construction purposes, in Sri Lanka. While the Tokyo Cement group looks for ways to develop new cement related products, the construction industry in Sri Lanka as a whole, still lags somewhat, in terms of modernisation.
