INSEE Cement, Sri Lanka’s leading and only integrated manufacturer of cement has been ranked amongst Sri Lanka’s Most Respected Entities 2021 by LMD magazine. The ranking is based on research carried out by Nielsen involving 800 “Manager and above” personnel within the corporate sector.
The data was gathered through unaided and unprompted telephone interviews, where each respondent was asked to name their picks for the top 3 companies in Sri Lanka, along with other questions. The Most Respected Entities ranking by LMD is one of the most prestigious accolades within Sri Lanka’s corporate sector and reflects the market leading position that INSEE Cement enjoys.
Expressing his pleasure, Jan Kunigk, Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing & Innovations at INSEE Cement said, “Being recognized as one of Sri Lanka’s most respected entities is a testament to our dedication to delivering best-in-class quality, sustainably and reliably. We are achieving this by leading the industry towards sustainable building practices, responsible waste management and digital integration to meet the needs of tomorrow.
Our stakeholders have witnessed and been a part of our pioneering efforts, resulting in them perceiving us as a respected entity. By consistently aiming for excellence, we create world class products that are clean and sustainable, which has earned us a reputation as the industry leader. I take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us and also LMD for providing us with this opportunity.”
INSEE Cement is driven by a core ethos of “Build for Life”, which the company lives true to by driving innovation across the sector and guiding the industry towards more sustainable and green building practices. Its range of Sanstha cement is engineered to be a superior blended cement that is environmentally friendly, while producing compressive strength equivalent to or greater than that of Ordinary Portland Cement.
The Company was also handpicked by the Colombo Porty City project to engineer and supply a specialized variety of cement for this megaproject. Being more than up to the task, INSEE Cement engineered the concretes used to build this modern marvel, which is certified to last at least 100 years amidst harsh marine conditions.
Kunigk further explained that one of INSEE Cement’s strengths has been its collaborative spirit and how that has contributed towards the company receiving this recognition, “One of the reasons we have achieved such a high degree of respect from within the industry, and also from outside, is because we are always willing to share! We share our knowledge, expertise and achievements with all industry stakeholders, including competitors, because we believe in winning through collaboration.
Thus, our efforts and values are on display for all to see. Our open culture of learning and industry-leading innovation, naturally place us in a position that elicits corporate respect and cooperation; both within the industry and with other stakeholders, such as government, to constantly improve standards within the industry. Our INSEE i2i Innovation Space, which is a centre of excellence open to all for collaboration, reflects our ethos and values, perfectly.”
