“We would also like to assure our valued customers, all other stakeholders and the public that CEAT Kelani complies with all legal and regulatory requirements in the conduct of its business, including the timely payment of dues.”

The manufacturer of nearly half of Sri Lanka’s pneumatic tyre requirements, the CEAT Kelani joint venture’s cumulative investment in Sri Lanka over the past decade alone exceeds Rs 8.5 billion. CEAT Kelani exports about 20 per cent of its production to 16 countries and plays a significant role in helping the national economy conserve foreign exchange by reducing dependence on imported tyres.
