Komatsu Hybrid Excavator from DIMO redefines construction industry landscape

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

For the first time in history DIMO introduced innovative Hybrid Excavators to the Sri Lankan market in October 2018.

Since the 1st ever machine sale in October 2018, DIMO has been able to deliver 33 units of Hybrid Excavators in Sri Lanka as at today, out of which 25 units are to the North Central Province.

The Hybrid Technology was not widely used in the South Asian Region and DIMO made Sri Lanka to become the first country to deliver the most number of units in South Asia. The decision to offer Hybrid machines to DIMO by Komatsu was achieved after much contemplation as they had to evaluate DIMO’s capabilities to offer after sales for the Hybrid users in Sri Lanka.

One Individual who tirelessly worked towards this achievement is Mr. Asanka Dimuthu Perera – Assistant Area Sales Manager who was able to deliver the first unit to the North Central Province amidst stiff competition and with the challenge to convince customers for the hybrid version and since then he was able to multiply sales and has managed to deliver more than 25 units in this region with the support and guidance of Mr. Damitha Wickramasinghe – Business Unit Manager.

Following the success of Komatsu Hybrid Excavators, DIMO organized a customer get-together for the Hybrid Excavator owners in the North Central Province at the Heritage Hotel in Anuradhapura recently. During the event, customers expressed how Komatsu Hybrid Excavators have helped them to maximize the productivity in their quarry sites and contributed towards the growth of their businesses.

Mr. Chaminda Ranawana – Executive Director appreciated the customers for placing confidence with DIMO on this new piece of equipment and elaborated how DIMO has been building relationships with its respective principals and customers over 80 years adhering to our corporate values while providing exceptional after sales services beyond expectations.
