The Sarvodaya Woodwork Unit consists of three main sections, namely, the Rathmalgoda Wood Treatment Section, the Furniture Production Section, and the Moratuwa Meth Medura Pre-school Equipment and Play-materials Production Unit and Sales Room.
The timber produced at the saw mill and treatment plant at Rathmalgoda is used for making furniture with the excess being sold externally. The staff have to make a strenuous effort to meet an increasing demand for their timber.
The pre-school equipment and play- materials produced at the Meth Medura production section have acquired a reputation in the country for their high quality and use of lead-free paint. There is an increasing demand for these from both local and foreign buyers.
To date, our unit has exported products to Australia, Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom and USA with revenue generated from sales supporting the community development activities of our parent organization, the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement.
