AMW opens central assembly facility

Associated Motorways (Private) Limited (AMW) a pioneer in the automobile industry in Sri Lanka,opened their central assembly facility at Sedawatte on November 11.The plant was opened by Len Hunt Chairman AMW and Samantha Rajapakse Group Managing Director, AMW.

The establishment of assembly plants has recently contributed to increasing industry specialization within the Asian region. While in the past automobile companies produced almost the entire vehicle within their production lines, large parts of value-added components are now outsourced, assigning a much larger role to auto parts suppliers than in the past.

The advantage of this strategy is that it enables automobile producers to benefit from economies of scale as they can build more models on the same platform, a trend strengthened by the recent consolidation in the global car industry.

AMW’S new assembly facility is built with the latest technology and is capable of producing an output of 70 units per day at present. Currently the division converts semi knocked down units into completed sellable units in a semi-automated production assembly line.
