Leema Creations joins forces with VTA


Interior solutions provider and furniture manufacturer Leema Creations has partnered with the Vocational Training Authority (VTA), as part of the company’s CSR approach, signing a memorandum of understanding to provide training practice for students in technical and vocational education.

The Minister of State for Skills Development, Vocational Training, Research and Innovation, Dr Seetha Arambepola, was the chief guest. The Ministry Secretary, Mrs. Deepa Liyanage, VTA President Eranga Basnayaka, Founding President of Leema Creations, Channa Wijesekara and Managing Director Shamika Wijesekara were also present.

Practical vocational training plays one of the most critical roles in developing the skills of young people in the country and their employability. Although there are more than 400 public and private technical institutes in the country to provide theoretical education, the provision of practical on-the-job training has always been a serious problem. Wijesekara wrote several important books on wood technology. At the ceremony, Wijesekara launched his latest book, “Lee Weda Prayogika Patamalawa” (Practices on Woodworking), and the first copy was presented to Minister Dr. Arambepola.

The Leema Creations manufacturing facility in Dompe is one of the largest and most modern joinery factories in Sri Lanka, spanning over 60,000 square feet. The factory consists of state-of-the-art computerized precision machinery.

Leema Creations management provides the best possible hands-on technical training to students and turns them into job-ready, productive and skilled wood technicians.
