Browns General Trading Division (GTD), the leading provider of world-renowned high quality hardware solutions to Sri Lanka, recently launched ‘Plumtek’—the newest addition to its extensive portfolio.  Plumtek offers a wide range of ABS taps, valves and faucets that are designed to meet unique customer needs. Sakkthi Polymers-India, the parent company of Plumtek is an ISO certified manufacturer that strives to sustain the highest quality standards. Being an innovative brand, Plumtek uses the latest technology in the world as well as the best raw materials to manufacture the products.
