Nabco made history!
We made history by becoming the first-ever platinum sponsor of one of the premier school rugby teams in Sri Lanka, St. Peter’s College rugby. For nine decades since the inception of rugby at the College, we had the honour of being the first brand to be displayed at the front of the team players’ jerseys. This was a proud moment for us to be able to become a supporting arm for the team with more than finances. We look forward to many opportunities arising from this sponsorship. Well wishes to the St. Peter’s College Rugby Team for a successful season!
Why have Nabco partnered with Modern-Expo?
2021 has been a very difficult year for companies that rely on Chinese manufacturers and shipping. Many organisations that depended on stock from China has continue to experience extremely long lead times and increasing rates for shipping that has led to costs being passed on to their customers. At Nabco we knew very early on that this would not be sustainable, and we needed a European based manufacturing partner.
When we started looking for a new European manufacturing partner, finding a partner that had similar values and business practice as Nabco was very important. We wanted a partner that was customer focussed, flexible and offered a broader range of high-quality retail solutions that would allow for wider market opportunities and growth for our customers and partners. The modern retail landscape is changing. We realised that new and innovative shelving solutions and retail ecosystem products would be necessary for providing our symbol retailers and shopfitting partners opportunities to create modern retail environments and displays.
When I visited Modern Expo’s headquarters with our Commercial Director, Trishan Satyadheva, we were very impressed. Modern Expo are one of the largest global retail manufacturers supplying over 75 countries. They have a vision of what the modern retail ecosystem will be and provide products and solutions for this. This includes design concepts and product development, as well as manufacturing and turn-key projects.
In addition, they had world class manufacturing and logistics facilities. Their entire 112,000 sqm manufacturing facilities are completely based on LEAN production principles. This is backed with the highest quality management certifications ISO 9001, environmental management ISO 14001 and health and safety management ISO 45001. Modern Expo products are all tested for compliance with TUV Rheinland, Bureau Veritas, UL and NSF international certification agencies and national certification bodies.
With their friendly and accommodating team, the professionalism of their operation and their willingness to go the extra mile for us, we knew we had found our partner and Nabco partnered with Modern-Expo.
