Ceylon Quartz Industries, an affiliate company of the Bartleet Group, won an award at the Bhu Abhimani, Haritha Harasara Pranama Ulela 2019 organised by the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau (GSMB) at the Nelum Pokuna Theatre recently.

It received the award for the Best Value Addition in the Mineral Sector for 2018. The awards ceremony was held with the aim of creating an eco-friendly country.

A spokesman for Ceylon Quartz said, “We thank our foreign partners in Japan/Malaysia – Tatsumori Ltd, their president, Board of directors and all team members for their support and guidance. The Management and all associates of Team CQIL has been the driving force behind the success of the company and their commitment and dedication helped us to achieve the above accolade which we all could be proud of as one family.”

Ceylon Quartz, incorporated in 1991, was a pioneer producer of pure crystalline quartz filler in Sri Lanka, in partnership with Nihon Morutalun Company (Japan) which thereafter sold their shares in 1996 to Tatsumori Limited (Japan & Singapore). Ceylon Quartz was further strengthened by Tatsumori with their supply of revolutionary machinery and technology for the production of quality processed quartz powder. The Company’s expertise is derived from its primary purpose of producing high purity pulverized quartz powder (Si02) and raw material used as filler (for epoxy/resin) in the manufacture of silicon chips and electronic components.

The company looks forward to face the challenges of the next decade by moving to the next level in the chip industry while becoming the number one value-added silicon producer in the Asian region and in the global market, the spokesman said.
