AMW Tyre Manufacturing shifting sights to more positive outlook ahead

Published

on

AMW Manufacturing, Sri Lanka’s pioneering tire manufacturer, has risen above the challenges of the past year with a very positive outlook for 2021. The company has dealt exceptionally well with COVID-19 and thrived amidst the novel market challenges to record impressive growth during 2020. This has been the result of acting quickly and decisively to completely restructure the company’s internal processes so as to cater to a post-COVID marketplace.

Proactively rising to the COVID-19 challenge from the very initial stage, AMW Manufacturing worked closely with the Sri Lanka Standards Institute to implement a state-of-the-art COVID-19 Safety Management System and was the 2nd organization in the country to have its COVID-19 safety system certified.

As a result, AMW Manufacturing managed to continue their operations unhindered while ensuring the health and safety of its associates. With equal proactiveness, the entire organization was repositioned for even greater customer focus, supported by a change of structure, internal processes, intensive training for all employees and a complete overhaul of SOPs to ensure faster response times and a single point of contact for customers. The introduction of Lean management has reduced waste and improved customer value creation while the introduction of cutting-edge automation and information technology, right down to the production floor, has made real-time decision making simpler and dramatically improved operational efficiency.  

“Our strategic initiatives are centered on creating customer centric organization supported by engaged employees, Lean business practices and technology, which will ensure that we live our promise of “Going the Extra Mile””, Added Lasantha Wijeweera, Director – Manufacturing, AMW. “Our focus on superior product and service quality as well as customer value addition has delivered results during the past few challenging months. So, our investments in people, processes and technology will continue, and we are certain of achieving even greater results”.
