Sri Lanka’s Premier Producer of Education Toys has big plans for the future

Panther, Sri Lanka’s leading educational toy and stationery manufacturer
celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. One of the first and only
manufacturers of educational products in the country, the company is renowned
not only for the high quality of its range but also its cost effective principles
and wide distribution network; that make Panther products accessible to all Sri
Lankans, everywhere.   
Speaking
of what inspired him to begin producing educational toys, Managing Director
Mr.Nihal Atukorala said “We observed that there was a severe lack in the
educational toy category, with the items that were available generally priced
way out of the league of most people, and with nothing that could cater to
children who were speaking and learning in our local languages. We are proud to
say that over a short period of time we expanded our operations, and today we
have a team of over 70 employees. We take great pride in harnessing fresh ideas
and talent within our young workforce. In the recent years the female presence
in our workforce has increased to 60%. We are an equal opportunity employer and
we take pride in maintaining the best possible safety standards and   optimum working conditions.”

Talking of the future Mr. Atukorala, said “Our aim was to provide
Sri Lankans with a cost effective product that is effective and of good
quality. Our main product range currently caters to children between the ages
of 2 and 6 and each product is tested to ensure that a child’s skill set is
developed effectively and appropriately. We intend to keep going, researching
and developing more and better products so that we can continue to contribute
to the education sector both here and abroad”.  Proof that their formula is already successful
is manifest in the fact that Nursery and pre-school teachers across Sri Lanka
have turned to Panther Educational Aids to enable them to give children the
skills they need to get a head start in life.
Every Panther product is made to the highest quality standards from
non-toxic paints and materials. Careful research goes into the design and
development of every Panther item and the company counts leading educational
practitioners and child psychologists in the country as consultants on all
their products. These world class products are also exported to the Maldives
Islands, Norway, Portugal and the Netherlands.
Over 5 years after opening their first retail outlet in Kalubowila, Panther
has expanded the outlets potential and now carries out weekend programs
catering to children of all ages “Children can come in and spend time in the
outlet engaged in arts and crafts and other educational activities, guided by
our qualified facilitators. It’s a good, productive way for children to spend
some time in a safe environment” explains Mr.Atukorala.
Panther has created a cross section of products that includes challenging
games, puzzles, books and flash cards that, among other advantages, aid colour
and shape recognition, encourage logical thinking, enhance vocabulary and encourage
cognitive development through play and reading. A full range of the products
they offer can be viewed on their website www.panther.com.
