Indian manufacturing giant Mtandt and
Sri Lanka’s PromoLanka Group have partnered to launch Mtandt Lanka [Pvt] Ltd.
Mtandt is India’s largest manufacturing and rental company for mobile access
platforms, aerial work platforms and material handling equipment; all of which
will now be available in Sri Lanka.
Mtandt’s focus is on providing safe
and economic solutions to the industrial and infrastructure segments. Sri Lanka
is currently experiencing a domestic construction boom, growing at 6.5% per
year and contributing almost 10% to GDP in recent years. Along with these
developments the growth of a supporting industry in equipment and construction
related services has been vital to sustaining the momentum, notes PromoLanka
Group CEO, Adil Mansoor. “We are very pleased to bring Mtandt’s construction equipment
to Sri Lanka, as these products are widely recognized as industry pacesetters, especially
in terms of bringing about safety for workers and improving the efficiency on
the job, two key elements that are currently void,” he said.
Founded in 1974 by Rajkumar Modi,
Mtandt is recognized as a pioneer construction safety solutions provider in
India. The company has now begun partnering with international market leaders
across the world to take its portfolio beyond India. In Sri Lanka, PromoLanka
is the partner of choice. “PromoLanka was a natural fit for us,” says Mtandt MD
Rakesh Modi. “Coming to Sri Lanka at a time like this is an immense opportunity
for us. It’s also a good time to strengthen the conversation about safety in
construction, and the sort of opportunities our rental services can provide to
start-ups and individual contractors.”
Mtandt Lanka will offer products such
as Aerial Work Platforms, which significantly minimize risks when working at
heights, and enhance productivity and convenience. Also on the portfolio are
Material Handling Equipment, Mobile Access Platform Systems (aluminium
scaffolding solutions made for high mobility and increased safety) and Fixed
Access and Fall Protection Systems.
The equipment is available for sale
and rent via Mtandt Lanka, which will prove to be an asset for entrepreneurs
and those taking part-time work.

Unilever Sri Lanka was Mtandt Lanka’s
first major client with a large consignment rental. The company’s commitment to
worker safety and standard adherence is expected to influence others to follow
