“A journey of a thousand miles begins at a single step.”
2017 was a significant year for Navesta as all of our hard work the last few years finally came to fruition at the end of August when we officially inaugurated our first factory. No journey is without bumps in the road. These bumps though, are the things which make the journey interesting because they define and build character, knowledge, and relationships.
To the Navesta staff. No matter how times got hard, we pulled through as a team and learnt from our mistakes. We have created better processes each and every month and your dedication in executing our Vision and Mission is unwavering and I can not be more proud that each one of you are my colleagues.
To our vendors and suppliers. Establishing a new type of industry in a country is no simple task. It has been thanks to your patience, knowledge, advice, and guidance that became our pillar of support in materialising everything. We look to continue building relationships with our current vendors and establish relationships with new ones.
To our future clients in Europe. Our process has already begun to align everything to obtain our EU-GMP in the next year. We hope to serve you by the end of 2018.
To the citizens of Sri Lanka in the country and overseas. We received so many messages of support from so many individuals this year that reiterates the rationale behind the long hours we continually put in to ensure that we provide opportunities for the local communities, that we produce the best product for the country, and that we continually push the country to think differently. Thank you for all your support.
Finally, to the future generations. We do what we do to provide you with the best product for your health and for there to be more development and economic growth so that you may live in a better society. There has been overwhelming outreach from young students and recent graduates who are excited to join the Navesta family and that is something that ignites us to be better for you.
Thank you all for a wonderful 2017, and here’s to an even better 2018.
Happy New Years from Navesta.
