IT and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) company, Kingslake has entered into a partnership with Atire, the tyre manufacturing arm of the Anunine Group, to streamline and optimise its production lines.

Leveraging the globally renowned ERP platform – SyteLine – developed by American multinational enterprise software giants, Infor,  will enable Atire to make significant enhancements in the efficiency and quality of its manufacturing processes.

The optimisation drive is part of Atire’s broader aspirations of becoming the largest forklift tire supplier in Europe and around the globe, using only the finest Sri Lankan natural rubber.

Managing Director of Atire, Kalhara Happuarachchi said, “Our brand has risen in popularity owing to the quality and reliability of our products, as well as the strong emphasis we place on customer-centricity. Based on these twin pillars, we have already sold over four million solid tyres in competitive export markets.

This has helped us to firmly establish our reputation as a brand which can be relied on at all times to get the job done. “Through our partnership with Kingslake and the implementation of Infor’s SyteLine ERP, we are now investing in the next stage of our growth. With this technological infrastructure in place, we intend to further enhance our production capacity, introduce state-of-the-art products, and radically optimise our customer service capabilities,” he said.

Kingslake CEO, Duleep Fernando said, “Leveraging our extensive in-house expertise, we have been able to design best-of-breed solutions that have enabled end-to-end excellence in local manufacturing from product concept, design and manufacture to delivery. We look forward to working together to make technology work for Atire to achieve their business goals.
