Sri Lanka’s first ever state run Wheel Alignment Centre (WAC) for the four wheel light vehicle class was launched on 11 September, demand for its services peaked –that too, not from state owned vehicles but from private vehicle owners hungry for trustworthy servicing.

“Eight vehicles, including high-roof ambulances, have been serviced within just seven hours’ of opening of STC Wheel Alignment Centre (STCWAC).

More private vehicles are now being booked” said Chairman of government owned State Trading (General) Corporation (STC) Hussein Bhaila on 12 September.

STCWAC is a free gift to the STC by Unimo Enterprises Ltd –the fully owned subsidiary of United Motors Lanka PLC –and was launched by Minister of Industry and Commerce, Rishad Bathiudeen on 11 September in Colombo, in the presence of his State Minister Buddhika Pathirana,

STCWAC is the first ever state run Wheel Alignment Centre providing services to the public –and at very competitive prices. “STC sells ten tyre brands and one such brand is Yokohama, the Japanese made tyre which is among the global top ten.

With the support of Unimo Enterprises Ltd and United Motors Lanka PLS, STC is now becoming a one stop shop for customers visiting to purchase their tyres as they can correct their wheels right here.

The total value of setting up the STCWAC is around Rs 5 million (excluding the land value). STC, under Minister Bathiudeen’s Ministry, is the sole, state owned diversified conglomerate in Sri Lanka, offering a vast range of products and services -from household equipment to industrial machinery.
