Executive Comments

1 Mamoru Nagano Chairman - Metatechno Lanka Company (Pvt.) Ltd

Metatechno Lanka was established in the year 2001, at a time when Sri Lanka was under the influence of a civil war. Our company has played a major role in providing employment opportunities for skillful graduates from universities around the country. Metatechno Lanka has contributed to the development of Sri Lankan IT sector by providing Japanese language and IT education to its employees and through the exchange of the IT talent with Japan.
Nearly 20 years after the establishment, Sri Lanka has achieved remarkable progress in the economic and political sector with the end of the civil war of the country. During this period, Metatechno Lanka has also gone through several transformations. The flow of human resources was directed only from Sri Lanka to Japan at the time of establishment. Gradually there is a trend of undertaking development jobs in Sri Lanka, based on human resources returning to the country and this has established the foundation for presence of Metatechno Lanka.
In recent years, we were able to carry out IT business in Sri Lanka without the support of our parent company, Metatechno Inc. Japan. Some of those achievements in technical domains exceed that of parent company Metatechno. Specifically, it has grown to be one of the major IT solution providers to leading companies and universities in Sri Lanka. Moreover, human resources who are working in Metatechno Lanka and their technical abilities are the foundation that supports our development in the future.
In addition to cooperating in business with parent company Metatechno, Metatechno Lanka is directly involved with the overseas business in other countries including Japan as well as local business, which makes them the three pillars to hold them firm. We appreciate your continued support.

1 Naoshi Yamada Managing Director - Metatechno Lanka Company (Pvt.) Ltd

About 20 years after the establishment of the company in 2001, Metatechno Lanka is now on a new stage to make a leap. In addition to offshore development outsourcing from Japan and dispatching Sri Lankan engineers to Japan, which we have been working on as a central business domain, from now on it is necessary to go on a new journey in various fields related to software development and software services and to develop those markets. At that time, we believe that the key factor is “Creating and Providing Customer Value”.

Of course, not only engineering but also all the work done by Metatechno Lanka is focused on “Creating and Providing Customer Value”. And in order to “Create and Provide Customer Value”, we believe that it is important to communicate with each company and every customer.

Based on the established technical backbone we have cultivated so far, we will continue to “Create and Provide Customer Value” to Sri Lankan domestic, to Japan and to the world, so please pay attention for future Metatechno Lanka!

2 Kazuyuki Ikura Director - Metatechno Lanka Company (Pvt.) Ltd

Our company is a Japanese software development company that is head quartered in Kawasaki city of Kanagawa prefecture, which is Japan’s leading business city. Since the establishment of the company in 1984, we have expanded the business steadily by making optimal use of printer firmware, image processing and communication processing. Furthermore, prompted by the mission of “counteracting the lack of engineers in Japan by recruiting and educating top Sri Lankan engineers, who can benefit the Japanese Industry while also passing on the technology to Sri Lanka “; Metatechno Lanka was thus established in 2001. Over the past 14 years, 48 well trained engineers have returned to Metatechno Lanka having concluded their hands on training in Japan. An initiative that we are confident will render excellent results in the long run.

Alternatively, it was not an easy task to capitalise on the inherited technology within Sri Lanka, in terms of expanding the Japanese business by further leveraging Metatechno Lanka. To counteract the lack of sense of unity and overcome this situation, Metatechno group has established an overseas business development section within the company that would focus on quality improvements and enhancing the productivity of the entire group. Concurrently with efforts being made to acquire business propositions from Japanese customers, we are also promoting the business within the markets of Sri Lanka and Japan. Going forward, we are now united as a singular group who is committed to make Sri Lanka and Japan the Hub of IT Business within the Asian and World Business Markets. To achieve this vision, we look forward to your kind co-operation.

1 Keiji Wada Director - Metatechno Lanka Company (Pvt.) Ltd

Sri Lanka is a country with very high educational standards that are apparent through the multidisciplinary engineers at Metatechno Lanka, who are very committed towards their work. All Metatechno Lanka engineers are trained in Japan for a period of three to eight years and they are proficient in English, Japanese as well as the local language “Sinhalese”.

Core businesses of Metatechno Lanka include embedded system development, Device Driver development, Point of Sales (POS) system development, Web Application development, Mobile development & Automobile system testing. Most of the systems were developed for prestigious Japanese companies while Metatechno Lanka also conducts cutting edge R&D projects such as Near Field Communication (NFC).

Within the IT Industry, there are multiple IT companies and experts of Indian origin but few of Sri Lankan origin. As such, with the able partnership of Metatechno Lanka, we put a great effort in developing Sri Lanka as a software outsourcing destination employing cutting edge Japanese technology & quality assurance.
