The MoU was signed by CEO, Kelani Cables, Mahinda Saranapala and
Senior Vice President, Agriculture, Battery, Porcelain and New Business
of Brown and Company, Panduka Weerasingha.
"Kelani Cables introduced an international standard jumper cable to
their product portfolio recently making it one of the best jumper cables
in Sri Lanka.
The cable is manufactured using pure copper. Due to the quality of
raw materials used the correct amperage is transferred without damaging
the battery and does not effect the lifetime of the battery," a
spokesman for the company said.
CEO, Kelani Cables, Mahinda Saranapala said, "We signed the MoU with
one of the best battery brands in Sri Lanka which is Exide from Browns.
The jumper cable we manufacture is of the best quality like the other
products manufactured by us."
"Research by our R and D department found out that most of the jumper
cables in the market do not meet the minimum standards and this was one
of the reasons to manufacture this jumper cable.
When the jumper cable is not compatible enough to transform the
required amperage from one battery to another the result is damage to
both batteries," he said.
Senior Vice President, Agriculture, Battery, Porcelain and New
Business of Brown and Company, Panduka Weerasingha said, "We plan to
introduce a jumper cable under the BG brand portfolio which is now
considered as a part of a battery.
We selected Kelani Cables to be our partner in manufacturing the
jumper cable because of the quality of the products they manufacture and
the standards they maintain. We see this MoU as an opportunity to
provide the best to our clients who have been with us for generations,"
"The MoU signed between the two companies is a significant landmark
because the two parties are the giants in their areas of business,
Kelani Cables PLC for electrical cables and Exide for automotive
batteries," said Brand Development Manager, Channa Jayasinghe.
