0 129

Litro Gas Lanka Limited (LGLL) – Sri Lanka’s largest importer, supplier and market leader of LP Gas – played a pivotal role in empowering the country’s key industries, especially the large-scale dollar-earning industries, during the recent crisis.

Despite the forex crisis, Litro managed to continuously cater especially to the B2B sector to ensure export activities are carried out uninterrupted. During this period, Litro also accommodated the clientele of its only other competitor making sure local industries can carry out their operations swiftly despite the less-than-ideal circumstances.

Apart from facilitating an uninterrupted supply, Litro also supported customers during this period by providing logistical services as well as technical support. The Litro hotline/Call Centre remained active and available to customer queries & complaints 24×7.

Commenting on his experience with Litro, President of the Ceramics Association & Managing Director of Midaya Ceramics Pvt Ltd Anura Yoshi Warnakulasooriya stated: “On behalf of the industry, I would like to commend Litro for ensuring an uninterrupted supply as well as offering price reductions and concessions despite the inflation.”

“ This has helped our industry, which is very energy-intensive, to remain competitive globally as well as to bring dollars to Sri Lanka during this critical juncture. Litro’s timely & unconditional support helped us toavoid shipment delays and other issues that would have potentially crippled the industry beyond recovery.”

Meanwhile, the President of the Lanka Confectionery Manufacturers Association — a collective of manufacturers of confectionary items including biscuits S.M.D. Suriyakumara said: “Confectionary industry mostly relies on LP Gas because the alternatives are expensive as well as unsustainable. We commend Litro for closely working with us to make sure the industry is prioritized and catered to despite the limitations in the supply. This protected the industry as well as thousands employed by it.”

Litro provided crucial support to several important industries in the country, including exports, in the aftermath of the global pandemic and during one of the worst recessions in recent history. Litro’s efforts included facilitating continued supply and maintaining price stability by absorbing losses amounting to 1.1bn LKR at the peak of the pandemic in 2021/22.

Litro has since returned to profitability by aligning with the global market’s fluctuations and leveraging technology & extensive dealer network to swiftly cater to domestic & industrial sectors.
