Marking 25 years of unparalleled commitment to excellence in Sri Lanka, Variosystems proudly announces the inauguration of its 3rd state-of-the-art production facility, located in Badalgama. This monumental milestone underscores the company’s unwavering dedication to innovation, sustainability, and operational excellence.

“The location in Badalgama is a central component of our vision. We want to support international customers with local supply chains, competitive prices, and global quality standards – true to our motto ‘co-creating leading innovators.’ Through the expansion, we are strengthening our presence in the growing Asian market and our global electronics supply chain,” announced Stephan Sonderegger, CEO of Variosystems, at the opening.

The Variosystems Sri Lanka’s new ultra-modern building represents a quantum leap in manufacturing capabilities. Located in Badalgama, the cutting-edge facility boasts a doubling of production capacity to an impressive 30,000 square meters. This expansion solidifies Variosystems’ position as a global electronics service partner with headquarters in Steinach, Switzerland.

The newly minted structure is powered entirely by renewable energy and sets new industry benchmarks. Advanced technology integration ensures increased capacity and accelerated turnaround times. Adhering to lean manufacturing principles, the architectural design streamlines processes, maximizing operational efficiency. A centralized warehouse with 23,000 cubic meters of storage space supports production across all three buildings, optimizing goods and people movement through strategically placed link bridges.

Variosystems Sri Lanka places sustainability at the heart of its operational ethos. The third building showcases the company’s dedication to resource optimization and environmental stewardship. Featuring solar panels, energy-efficient lighting, water conservation techniques, and cutting-edge waste management systems, the facility exemplifies Variosystems’ commitment to preserving the planet for future generations.

“We are excited to open our new 3rd state-of-the-art production building and create 600 new jobs in the next three years in the local community. We are committed to investing in our future and providing our customers with best-in-class products and service quality while driving economic growth and upholding sustainable practices,” commented Mr. Thevan Satheeswaran, Managing Director (Country Manager) of Variosystems Sri Lanka.
