manufacturing facility that is billed to be Asia's most modern. The facility, now nearing completion, is currently at a stage of commissioning of machinery with trial production scheduled to begin later next month.

The project - a bold and decisive initiative by Royal Ceramics Lanka Limited to diversify its product portfolio - was born in late 2005.

As the outcome of careful conceptualization, design and selection of appropriate technology during the last two years, Rocell Bathware (RBL) will be a state of the art production facility equipped with the latest innovations in production and process technologies.

Two of the world's leading bathware technology providers, UNIMAK of Turkey and SACMI of Italy are the lead suppliers of machinery and technology.

At present, foreign installation teams from both UNIMAK and SACMI are collaborating with the Rocell Bathware team to install, commission and transfer technology seamlessly. The production facility is a 180 meters in length with total facilities covering approximately 180,000 square feet.

Design development of the bathware models has been undertaken by two renowned industrial design companies hailing from none other than the design capital of the world, Italy.

Lead designers of the design studios Sisa of Milan and Modelli of Rome have worked tirelessly to produce and perfect a range of bathware masterpieces, exclusively for Rocell Bathware.

Sourcing some of the world's best raw materials for its manufacturing process has seen the company tie-up with a host of European raw material suppliers including WBB of England - the highest quality clay supplier to the global bathware market -. Rocell Bathware will utilize clay from WBB's mines in England for the development of the bathware body.

In addition, the manufacturing facility has one of the most advanced and well-equipped laboratories in Sri Lanka, particularly within the Ceramic industry.

The laboratory will have the capability to conduct R&D and product quality assurance procedures, in-house.

An additional second dedicated product-testing laboratory will carry out functional tests on finished products. These include equipment to conduct dimensional stability tests, tests to determine weight bearing capabilities, flush and disposal testing as well as leakage testing.
